"His family has never seen him pitch and they were in Colorado Springs tonight to see him", Counsell said of Peralta, the right-hander who was scratched so he could instead head to Denver for his major league debut.

Oddsmakers are listing Milwaukee (+145) as the underdog to Colorado (-155).
Freeland was relieved by Bryan Shaw after issuing successive one-out walks in the seventh but Shaw and Mike Dunn retired the next two batters to end the threat. His only professional start at the position was in 2014 for the Indians' Class AAA affiliate. They've gained 4.5 units for moneyline bettors and 3.9 units against the spread (ATS).
Rockies manager Bud Black said he noted a collective effort by the team to put Friday night's defeat behind them and move forward. They entered Sunday's game with 364 strikeouts, the fourth-most in the National League. Milwaukee has covered the spread four times in its last seven games and the under has cashed in three of those seven.
Kyle Freeland and Trevor Story helped the Colorado Rockies bounce back nicely from one of their toughest losses of the season. Today he gets to face a Milwaukee lineup that is among the least productive in the league.
Milwaukee was shut out for the eighth time this season, falling to 5-5 against left-handers. On the season, Gray has a 4.24 ERA with a 1.22 WHIP.
Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 3: J.D. Martinez homered and had three RBIs, Mookie Betts had two hits and made a sensational diving catch, and visiting Boston beat Toronto. The bullpen has logged an outstanding ERA of just 2.55, along with a K/9 of 10.28.
Milwaukee's hitters have been powered by Lorenzo Cain and Eric Thames. Keuchel (3-5) struck out eight and walked one, lowering his ERA from 3.53 to 3.10 with his third straight outing giving up three runs or fewer. Colorado starter Chad Bettis allowed a season-high seven runs in five-plus innings.
The team announced after the game that Anderson would be placed on the disabled list and Jorge Lopez would be recalled.
Third baseman Nolan Arenado and outfielder Charlie Blackmon have led the Rockies' offense so far. "He's done his job in a tough place to pitch".
Colorado has recorded 22.5 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 games and 22.0 over its last five.
The Brewers pulled within a run with a four-run sixth but Colorado went back up 10-8 in the bottom of the sixth when Gonzalez homered off reliever Taylor Williams. The teams have stayed under the total in seven of the last eight meetings at Coors Field and in six of the last seven meetings overall.
