Peralta went 3 for 4 in a comeback win, and his two-run home run in the sixth inning helped get the rally going. He finished the game with the one run scored and two driven in.

Peralta has three home runs in 10 games during the month of July, and is now hitting .248/.324/.453 with 14 home runs and 42 RBI in 322 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Peralta delivered the second of back-to-back home run in a four-run fourth inning to give his team a 5-1 lead, but the Cardinals let the game slip away in the ninth inning, when the Marlins scored two runs to snatch the win. The shortstop has hit .241/.320/.446 with 13 home runs and 39 RBI in 303 at-bats.

Peralta went 2 for 5 in the game, and snapped his seven-game homerless streak along the way. He opened the game with a two-run home run in the first inning giving the Cardinals a lead they would not relinquish.

Peralta is hitting .241 in 294 at-bats, with 12 home runs and 38 RBI in 84 games.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta is set to sit Saturday against tough Dodgers right-hander Zach Greinke, against whom he has 11 hits in 47 lifetime at-bats.

Peralta owns an eight-game hitting streak, but has managed just one hit in seven of them. He does have nine RBI in his last seven games, however.


Jhonny Peralta slugs 11th home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Peralta evened the game at 3-3 with his fourth-inning home run, and the Cardinals were able to briefly take the lead in the inning before the Rockies went up for good in the bottom half of the fourth.

Jhonny Peralta sitting Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta won't have a shot at extending his four-game hitting streak Wednesday unless used as a pinch-hitter. He is out of the lineup against the Mets as Daniel Descalso has taken his place.

Peralta has suffered through a disappointing season coming off a fine 2013. If he maintains his current .238 batting average, it would be a career-worst.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta hit a solo homer and doubled in four at-bats against the Blue Jays on Sunday. He's up to 10 homers, 16 doubles and 26 RBI, and he's raised his average to .231/.307/.436.

Bad BABIP burying batting average for Jhonny Peralta


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta can blame Dame Fortune or Lady Luck for much of his struggles this season, especially in regard to his .239 batting average.

Peralta owns a BABIP of just .252, which pales in comparison to the league average of .291 and his .374 mark of a year ago. Some of that indicates he's simply not hitting the ball as consistently hard, but his power numbers suggest otherwise. Peralta has nine home runs and 11 doubles among his 44 hits.

Despite a batting average that is 66 points under what he achieved with the Cardinals in 2013, his slugging percentage of .446 is nearly identical to the .457 mark he managed a year ago.


Jhonny Peralta slugs homer No. 9


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Cardinals infielder Jhonny Peralta went deep for the first time in nine games Tuesday, in a 5-0 win over the Diamondbacks.

Peralta went 2 for 4 in the game, with a double and a home run, driving in one run on each swing. Peralta raised his average to .252 while hitting his ninth home run in 43 games; he had just 11 in 107 games a year ago.  


Hot streak has Jhonny Peralta average skyrocketing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta has used a steady stretch and six-game hitting streak to lift his average 80 points to .231 in the last two weeks.

Peralta has hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games, during which time he has 17 hits in 48 at-bats with five doubles, three home runs and seven RBI. Strangely, however, he has recorded an RBI in only two of those games. He has seven home runs and 15 RBI on the season.


Jhonny Peralta ends Cards' power drought


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2014) Shortstop Jhonny Peralta homered twice and drove in four runs in the Cardinals' 7-0 win over the Pirates. His fifth-inning solo shot ended the team's string of 366 at-bats without a home run.

Peralta added a three-run blast in the sixth for his eight career multihomer game.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta has responded postively since getting a day off Saturday amid a 2-for-32 slump to begin the season.

"I've felt good from the beginning. It's nothing different," Peralta said, when asked about his recent surge. "The only thing different is better luck. But I haven't changed anything."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I need to see more pitching," Peralta said, per MLB.com. "It's a little different. I don't know the pitcher or what the pitcher has. I don't want to use it as an excuse, but it's a little different than what I've seen in the American League."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2014) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Peralta has struggled at the plate over the early part of the season, with his pair of homers representing his only hits in 32 at-bats. He's 0 for 14 with three walks over the Cardinals' last five games. Daniel Descalso draws the start at shortstop in his stead.

Johnny Peralta looking to turn reputation around


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2014) Cardinals new shortstop Jhonny Peralta is eager to make a good impression and he took an important first step by showing up to camp three days earlier.

Peralta lost 50 games last season to a performance enhancing drug suspension while with the Tigers before returning to bat .333 in the postseason. The Cardinals were criticized by some for signing him as a four-year free agent contract for $53 million.

"I came here early to talk to everybody and let them know what kind of person I am," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "It's hard to come back from that situation but I tried to forget about and I loved forward."

Peralta batted a career-high .303 last season with 11 home runs and 55 RBI before the suspension.


Jhonny Peralta ready to help Cardinals win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) New Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta said he's ready for a fresh start after serving a 50-game suspension in 2013 with the Tigers for his ties to the Biogenesis investigation, according to Belleville (Ill.) News-Democrat.

"I'm trying to put it in the past," Peralta said. "I'm trying to look forward and forget about it. ... I know I can play baseball naturally. I have to show people that I can do it and that I can help.

"I'm going to try to do the best I can do and try to help the Cardinals go to the World Series one more time and win. I've been watching the Cardinals for a long time, and this was one of the teams I wanted to be with. It's a great organization and there's a great opportunity to be a champion. I want to be a champion, too."

As for his spot in the batting order, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak hinted Peralta could be a candidate to bat second, despite hitting primarily sixth or seventh in his career.

"I think you could go either way with him," Mozeliak said of Peralta. "I definitely think (he will hit) in the top two-thirds (of the order). I think how things shake out will depend on ... how we want to balance that out."
