Peralta had lost his previous two starts and was winless in three outings since back-to-back victories July 9 and 14. He received a no-decision in his only other matchup with San Francisco, a 10-8 Brewers win April 16 at Miller Park.
Jim Henderson pitched the ninth for his 16th save in 19 chances.
"Wily certainly is a guy we'd love to have in the rotation," manager Ron Roenicke said. "Henderson at the back end, wherever we decided, whether it's closing or eighth, we think he's really going to be a valuable guy to have."
Not to mention the guy they get back Wednesday night.
Right-hander Marco Estrada returns to the mound for the Brewers for his first start since June 3 after spending time on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain.
Posey, last season's NL MVP and batting champion, was hit by a pitch from Peralta above his left elbow with two out in the sixth, and Posey grimaced in pain as he slowly walked to first.
"It's frustrating. All of us take a lot of pride to be in those situations and come through," Posey said of the missed chances.
NOTES: Peralta singled to start the sixth for his seventh career hit and sixth this year. ... Gomez is batting .444 (8 for 18) with two home runs and three RBIs against the Giants. But he had been hitless in his last 18 at-bats coming into Tuesday's game.
