The Milwaukee Brewers haven't had great luck this season with injuries, but they're likely feeling fortunate that Wily Peralta will be able to start Tuesday night. They'll feel even better if Ryan Braun is able to play. Peralta takes the mound for the first time since an injury scare for Milwaukee, which could also get Braun back against the Cincinnati Reds at Miller Park. The Brewers (36-52) have dealt with a rash of injuries, including ones to Corey Hart, Aramis Ramirez and Braun, who was activated from the disabled list Monday after sitting out since June 9 due to a bruised right thumb. Braun didn't play in Milwaukee's 4-3 win over Cincinnati (50-39), but could be in Tuesday's lineup. Meanwhile, Ramirez was placed on the DL for the second time this season as his left knee continues to bother him. "Being on the DL is not something I enjoyed," said Braun, who hit .304 with nine homers and 36 RBIs in 57 games before succumbing to injury. "Definitely made me appreciate the last six years having never spent time on the DL because it's just a lot of long, boring days. I'm excited to be back. I'm excited to be able to compete again and be able to contribute, hopefully contribute to some better baseball." Manager Ron Roenicke said Peralta (5-9, 5.27 ERA) is on track to start after running into a setback his last time out. He left last Tuesday's 4-0 win at Washington in the sixth inning with a strained left hamstring. Peralta was initially set to pitch Sunday but had that pushed back as a precaution. "No restrictions," Roenicke said of Peralta, who threw 5 1-3 scoreless innings while allowing three hits to the Nationals before exiting. "It's all going to be dictated on what's happening. If he feels something, then, obviously, we'll address that. As far as pitches and things, there's no restrictions." The right-hander started the season 3-6 with a 6.35 ERA in his first 11 starts, but has been better recently, going 2-3 with a 3.76 ERA over his last seven outings. Peralta would likely be especially happy to have Braun back on the field, as he received an average of 2.43 runs of support in his last seven games, including a total of three runs over his last four. Milwaukee has also committed three errors in his last four starts, but salvaged Monday's victory with a big assist from Carlos Gomez, who took away what would have been the go-ahead home run from Joey Votto for the game's final out. Tony Cingrani (3-0, 3.40) will take the hill Tuesday, looking to keep Cincinnati from its fourth loss in five games. He gave up two runs in 5 2-3 innings of a 3-2 win over San Francisco on Wednesday, his first start since June 11. Braun and Jean Segura homered off Cingrani when he failed to record a decision in Cincinnati's 4-3 win May 10. Those were the only two runs allowed by the left-hander in four innings - his shortest start of the season.
