MILWAUKEE -- Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta made a strong return to the majors. Just not strong enough to win.Peralta matched his season highs with six innings and six strikeouts, but Tyrell Jenkins countered with six solid innings and the Atlanta Braves beat Milwaukee 2-1 on Tuesday night.Peralta (4-8) was recalled Monday when the Brewers placed right-hander Junior Guerra on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. He allowed two harmless hits through six innings, but then ran into trouble in the top of the seventh when the Braves went ahead.It was very encouraging, for sure, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. He certainly mixed in more off-speed. Good changeups, curveballs he used, his slider he used. That made the fastball play out as much as anything. They respected his off-speed tonight. He pitched really well. He deserved better.Peralta walked Freddie Freeman before Matt Kemp singled in the fifth. Nick Markakis followed with an RBI hit that chased Peralta. Adonis Garcia welcomed reliever Michael Blazek with a run-scoring hit.I had a hard time early when I was here, Peralta said. Its a lot of emotion. I feel like I was pretty much making my debut today.Peralta, the 2016 opening day starter, was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on June 12. He made 13 starts before the demotion and had just two quality starts, none in his last six.Jenkins (2-2) allowed one run and three hits. He walked three and struck out three in his sixth career start and 10th major league appearance. The right-hander has a 1.00 ERA over his past three starts.He competes and competes and competes, Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said of the young right-hander. Thats the one thing I admire about him.His only mistake was Ryan Brauns home run in the fourth.The one guy in our meetings we stressed to not let him beat us was Braun. Jenkins said. I kept that in mind.Mauricio Cabrera pitched the ninth for his third save.Jonathan Villar hit into a 4-6-3 double play in the eighth, but the Brewers challenged the force out at second and the call was overturned because shortstop Erick Aybar missed the base. Snitker then asked the umpires to review Manny Pinas slide into second base, and the slide was deemed legal.Chaz Roe took over and got the final out when Orlando Arcia grounded to third and Pina ran into the tag.Snitker, who was named interim on May 17, took over a club that was 9-28. Since then, the Braves are 34-42.When you handle adversity, there is good things on the other end of it Snitker said. But, you have to handle it. You take ownership of things and handle it.The victory was the Braves 10th in the last 14 games, including six in the last seven.DONT RUN ON MEAnthony Recker strayed too far off second in the top of the third and catcher Pina recorded his second caught stealing of the game when he fired a strike to shortstop Arcia. In the first, Pina threw out Ender Inciarte trying to steal second.STREAK IS OVERVillar was caught stealing and made the third out in the sixth. It snapped a streak of 24 consecutive successful stolen base attempts, which was a franchise record.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: OF Domingo Santana started in right field and went 0 for 2 with a strikeout in his second game of a rehab assignment with Class A Wisconsin.UP NEXTBraves: RHP Joel De La Cruz (0-4, 3.41 ERA) makes his fifth start of the season and first against Milwaukee.Brewers: RHP Chase Anderson (6-10, 5.01) makes his first start against the Braves this season. He beat them 6-5 while with Arizona in his only career start on June 8, 2014.

ANDERSON, Ind. -- Robert Mathis makes every word count. Every play, too.When teammates hear the Indianapolis Colts oldest starter bark out instructions or crack pads, they tune in. When they see Mathis hang out in Anderson Universitys dorms or hear him explain how privileged he feels to return each summer, they listen attentively. When they see Mathis take an occasional day off at training camp or run around with his kids after a practice, they realize he is no ordinary 35-year-old linebacker.He is as determined and passionate as he was the day he arrived at his first training camp in 2003.You have to work for everything you get, Mathis said. Anything worth having is worth being worked for.Mathis short, powerful messages have always resonated in the Colts locker room.Indy opened the 2012 season with a new coach, a new general manager, a rookie quarterback, and was ranked last in the NFLs projected power ratings. Mathis responded to the doubters on Twitter: I will not let you forget.Later that season, when things looked bleak and coach Chuck Pagano left the team to battle leukemia, Mathis rallied his teammates with another line: There are no pity parties in football.To Mathis, words and actions mean something.The 6-foot-2, 235-pound defensive end/outside linebacker from Alabama A&M is still motivated by the notion so many scouts wrote him off as too small, too slow and too untested against elite competition when he was coming out of college.Indy saw Mathis a different way. Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy was convinced Mathis could be the perfect complement to Dwight Freeney, so GM Bill Polian traded a future fourth-round pick to Houston for the third pick in Round 5 to snag Mathis.Fourteen years, one position change and 118 sacks later, the Atlanta native remains one of the most feared pass rushers in football when hes healthy.A year ago, he wasnt. It took the NFLs 2013 sacks champ almost half a season to regain his form after missing all of 2014 because of a suspension (performance enhancer) and a torn left Achilles tendon that required 10 surgeries and 12 months to fix.dddddddddddd He wound up finishing 2015 with 24 tackles, seven sacks and a lot of momentum heading into this season.Robert is one of our best football players. Were going to have him on the football field as often as he can handle, new defensive coordinator Ted Monachino said. We arent keeping Robert back and we arent reining him in in any way.Mathis has never played the game that way, and hes certainly not going to start now.Yet the spry, six-time Pro Bowler also understands business. His contract expires after this season, and throughout his career in Indy, Mathis has watched longtime friends such as Freeney, Marvin Harrison, Peyton Manning, Jeff Saturday and Reggie Wayne all let go once the Colts deemed it financially or philosophically unfeasible to keep the aging stars.Mathis knows he could be next, though hes not giving any illusion of a decline.Rob is one of the hardest workers Ive been around, Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis said. He is going on his 14th year and it shows you his humbleness and how much he loves and respects the game.Now the Colts need Mathis than ever.He accounted for 20 percent of their 35 sacks last season, and after Indy used three of its eight draft picks on defensive players -- safety T.J. Green, inside linebacker Antonio Morrison and outside linebacker Trevor Bates -- the Colts are asking Mathis to put even more pressure on opposing quarterbacks as the coaches look for ways to help.And theres more at stake, too. He wants to add another Super Bowl ring, could crack the top 10 on the NFLs career sacks chart, and with one or two more really good seasons could even put himself in Hall of Fame consideration.A lot of media said I couldnt do it. I take a lot of pride in (proving them wrong), Mathis said with a laugh. I just appreciate the opportunity to be out there.
