Worth noting

• The Brewers took an extra step to try to make righty Wily Peralta that much more comfortable in his first career start Wednesday. Milwaukee started Martin Maldonado behind the plate. Maldonado has experience catching Peralta in the Minors.

"The mental part of your first start in the big leagues is important," Roenicke said. "Any time you can be more familiar with what's going on, it's going to help. Maldy and him, they've been together, and I think that's the right way to do it, to get him more comfortable."

• Righty Josh Stinson, who was called up from Double-A Hunstville on Tuesday, was available out of the bullpen Wednesday, Roenicke said.
