Through 19 games this season, all of which were starts, Peralta’s opponents have only managed a .234 batting average against him. That mark is the fifth lowest in the league among qualified pitchers.
His signature game last month occurred on July 8. Peralta struck out eight Hagerstown Suns in a rain shortened five inning no-hitter. That outing followed a six-inning scoreless effort against Hagerstown on July 2nd. He allowed just one hit with seven strikeouts in his first appearance of the month.
