A game of firsts in Brewers' 2-0 shutout of Reds
MILWAUKEE - The Brewers' 2-0 win over Cincinnati Tuesday was a game of firsts for several Brewers players.
The game was Ryan Braun's first back in the starting lineup after missing a month with a thumb injury. Braun lined the first pitch he saw in his first at-bat for a single in the first inning.
Logan Schafer, filling in for Nori Aoki at the last minute Tuesday night, hit the first home run of his big league career, later getting the 'silent treatment' prank from teammates in the dugout.
Wily Peralta's 'first' might have been the most impressive of all - Peralta threw the first complete game shutout of his professional career, major or minor leagues. Peralta retired Brandon Phillips, representing the tying run, to end the shutout.
