National League Preview from The Sports Network

Friday, June 21st (All times Eastern)

Atlanta Braves (43-31) at Milwaukee Brewers (29-42), 8:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Atlanta - Julio Teheran (5-3, 3.36) Milwaukee - Wily Peralta (4-8, 6.08)

(Sports Network) - Skidding Dominican righty Wily Peralta looks for a second win in his fourth June start on Friday night when the Milwaukee Brewers host the Atlanta Braves in the opener of a three-game series at Miller Park.

A 24-year-old, Peralta was 3-2 on the season after a 6-3 defeat of Texas on May 7, when he pitched six innings and allowed two earned runs.

He's won just once in eight outings since - defeating Philadelphia, 4-3, on June 1 - while dropping six decisions and watching his earned run average swell to 6.08 through 80 innings.

A 5-1 loss at Cincinnati was the result of his last start, when he gave up five runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Peralta's made one career start against Atlanta and gave up a run in six innings while getting a no-decision.

For the Braves, 22-year-old Colombian Julio Teheran tries to win a second straight decision for the second time in his brief career.

The right-hander won one game in seven appearances with the Braves in 2011 and 2012, then won his first two decisions across six starts to begin 2013.

He's 3-3 since, including a 3-0 defeat of San Francisco on June 16, in which he pitched six scoreless innings with a walk, seven hits and eight strikeouts.

The win lowered his ERA to 3.36 and his opposition batting average to .266, just a point more than his career mark of .265.

Teheran has never faced the Brewers.

On Thursday in Atlanta, Josh Satin doubled in the go-ahead run in the top of the seventh and the New York Mets edged the Braves, 4-3, in the final tilt of a rare five-game set at Turner Field.

With Mike Minor (8-3) pitching for the Braves, Omar Quintanilla doubled to start the frame. Satin then took a 2-1 pitch and doubled to right to give the Mets the lead for good.

In Houston, Carlos Pena's three-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning sent the Astros to a 7-4 decision over Milwaukee in the rubber match of a three-game interleague set.

Carlos Corporan reached base after a wild-pitch third strike from Michael Gonzalez (0-3), then advanced to third on a double from J.D. Martinez. Pena followed with a long homer to right to end the contest.

Jean Segura and Carlos Gomez posted a pair of hits each, while Jonathan Lucroy added a solo homer for the Brewers, who finished their nine-game road swing with a 4-5 record.

The Braves and Brewers split six games in 2012 with the home team winning each time.
