Detroit outfielder Cameron Maybin missed another game last night because of his swollen thumb. The injury occurred during last Wednesday’s game, and was initially diagnosed as a sprain. He’ll undergo an MRI today to see if it’s anything worse.
Gordon Beckham’s sacrifice fly off Carlos Torres in the top of the 12th inning lifted the Atlanta Braves to a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers last night. The rest of the scoring had come early – the game was tied 3-3 after the fifth inning. Martin Maldonado homered for Milwaukee.
The Brewers host the Braves again this evening. Wily Peralta will pitch against Tyrell Jenkins.
Peralta is filling in for Junior Guerra, who has been placed on the disabled list with inflammation in his right elbow. Peralta was Milwaukee’s opening day starter, but struggled so badly he was optioned to Colorado Springs. He didn’t do a whole lot better there, compiling a 6.31 ERA in 10 starts. The Brewers also sent reliever David Goforth back down to the Sky Sox, and brought up Rob Scahill, whom they claimed off waivers from the Pirates a month ago.
