    MILWAUKEE -- This is what Wily Peralta has been waiting for. The right-hander allowed two hits in seven innings and Jean Segura homered to lead the Milwaukee Brewers past the Atlanta Braves 2-0 Friday night for their second shutout of the season. Peralta (5-8) won for the second time in his last eight starts, giving up two singles to go with four strikeouts and four walks. It was the first time all season he gave up fewer than two runs in a game. Afterward, he was asked if it was his best game of the year. "Yeah, for sure," Peralta said. "I kept the ball down all day." Francisco Rodriguez pitched the eighth and Jim Henderson the ninth for his 10th save. Rodriguez picked up the previous five saves for Milwaukee to reach 299 in his career. Henderson was on the disabled list and then appeared in five games before returning to the closers role against the Braves. Segura finished with three hits, including his 11th homer, and Norichika Aoki added three singles after the birth of his son Thursday. "I was at the hospital all day yesterday," Aoki said. "I didnt get much sleep last night." Atlanta was shut out for the 10th time and lost for the fourth time in five games. "Its just part of the game," B.J. Upton said. "You play long enough you are going to get in stretches like this. Just got to find a way. We are a good enough ballclub. Well be fine." Julio Teheran (5-4) gave up two runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings. He struck out five and did not walk a batter. Seguras homer leading off the fifth gave Milwaukee a 2-0 lead. "I was just trying to get a base hit," Segura said. "I was just trying to put a good swing on it and I got it." In the first, Aoki and Segura singled before Carlos Gomez was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Aramis Ramirez gave Milwaukee a 1-0 lead on a sacrifice fly. Gomez was picked off first and Juan Francisco popped out to end the rally. The Braves struggled to score for the second night in a row. After stranding 11 runners in a 4-3 loss to the New York Mets on Thursday, Atlanta was at it again partly because of Teherans inability to execute sacrifice bunts. After the first two batters in the third -- Dan Uggla and Chris Johnson -- walked, Teheran tried a bunt that turned into a force at third. Andrelton Simmons flied out and Jason Heyward grounded out to end the inning. "I missed a little bit," Teheran said. In the fifth, Atlanta got its first hit when Upton led off with a single. He went to second when Uggla flied out to deep centre and advanced to third on an infield single by Johnson. This time, Teheran attempted a safety squeeze and bunted the ball to the right side of the plate. Peralta was able to field the ball in his glove and quickly tossed it to catcher Martin Maldonado, who tagged out the sliding Upton. "That was a nice play," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. "Youve got a fast runner on third base. That play is really hard to defence. And the bunt wasnt that bad. He got over there in a hurry and made a nice flip over. Maldy did a great job of blocking the plate." Simmons followed with a drive to right-centre that was caught by a diving Aoki. "We almost had it," Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We had the right guy on third base that could read it but (the bunt) could not get quite far enough down the first base line." Atlanta also had runners at first and second with two outs after Henderson walked Justin Upton and B.J. Upton in the ninth, but Uggla flied out to end the game. "A couple of times tonight we could have used that one hit," Uggla said. "We had a couple of opportunities here and there. We need to start taking advantage of those."

"Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. Football Federation Australia has put Western Sydney on notice after their hopes for a flare-free A-League season fell at the first hurdle.After Wanderers fans lit and threw a small number of flares in their 4-0 Sydney derby loss, FFA on Monday issued the club with a show cause notice that will extend - but not trigger - the threat of a three-point deduction until the end of the season.According to the governing body, the Wanderers have accepted the result and will re-double their efforts to maintain crowd decorum for the season ahead.While police were largely comfortable with the crowd behaviour in Saturdays derby, the flares embarrassed club leaders.A letter from figures including chief executive John Tsatsimas, coach Tony Popovic and captain Nikolai Topor-Stanley asked fans to be on their best behaviour this season.As a club we are united to succeed on the pitch and have a flare-free season, the letter read.The Red and Black Blocs restraint lasted less than an hour.A-League chief Greg ORourke said he didnt want to see similar incidents.If theres a recurrence of the incideent from last Saturday night .dddddddddddd.. FFA may well be left with no alternative other than to deduct points from the club, he said.The club will reconnect with their members again this week given a few persons chose to ignore the communication and strong stance against the lighting of flares from John Tsatsimas, Head Coach Tony Popovic and captain Nikolai Topor-Stanley.The Wanderers were originally served the punishment after away fans ignited about 20 flares, as well as crowd-frightening detonators, during a match against Melbourne Victory at Etihad Stadium in February this year.The ban was due to expire next February but will continue until after the last round of the regular season in April.Melbourne Victory are also sweating under the threat of a points deduction until next February for crowd trouble.The incident was a bum note in an otherwise stunning opening round, which attracted a league-record 106,365 attendees to the five matches.
