The Milwaukee Brewers are closing in on taking the National League Central lead into the All-Star break for a second consecutive year. The Brewers will try to maintain their slim margin atop the division when they face the host Miami Marlins in the rubber match of a three-game series Wednesday.



Milwaukee, which has won or split its last six series, evened the series with an 8-4 win Tuesday to maintain a chance of extending that streak. The Brewers rallied from an early 2-1 deficit to claim their 24th comeback win of the season and improve to 15-8 against the NL East. Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich has torn up his former team in his return to Miami, going 5-for-10 with two doubles and four RBIs in the first two games of the series. The Marlins, who had won two straight before Tuesday's setback, are trying to win a third consecutive home series.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Brewers RH Freddy Peralta (4-1, 2.14 ERA) vs. Marlins RH Dan Straily (3-4, 4.55)

Peralta is putting together an impressive rookie campaign, especially since being recalled June 19. The 22-year-old Dominican has posted quality starts in three of his last four outings, going 3-1 with a 1.50 ERA over that stretch. He allowed one run and three hits over six innings while striking out six in a win over Atlanta last time out.

Straily has only one win in his last nine outings, but he has posted three straight quality starts. The 29-year-old held Washington to two runs and five hits over six innings in a no-decision Friday. Straily is 4-0 with a 2.12 ERA in six games (five starts) against the Brewers.



WALK-OFFS

1. Yelich has recorded multiple hits in three consecutive games.

2. Marlins RF Brian Anderson collected his 30th multi-hit game Tuesday, most among MLB rookies.

3. Miami SS JT Riddle is 11-for-29 during a season-long six-game hitting streak.
