The Phils then took a 7-0 lead as Brian Schneider hits a two-run double, knocking in both Brown and Martinez. The Phils then make it an 8-0 lead in the ninth as, with two men on, and with two men out, Brown hits an RBI single, knocking in Mayberry, who had earlier singled, then moved up to second base on John Axford’s wild pitch, while sending Nix, who had just walked, on to second base. That would end up being the final score as Michael Schwimer would get Cody Ransom to strike out, swinging, with runners on the corners, for the game’s final out.

The Brewers took a 1-0 lead in the second as, with a runner on second, and with two men out, George Kottaras hits an RBI single, knocking in Yuniesky Betancourt, who had just doubled, before going to second base on the throw home. The Brewers made it a 2-0 lead in the third as, again with two men out, Ryan Braun hits a solo home run, his fifth home run of the year.

The Brewers then took a 4-0 lead in the seventh as, with two men on, and with two men out, Fielder hits an RBI single, scoring Rickie Weeks, who had earlier singled, then went to second on catcher’s Carlos Ruiz’s throwing error, while sending Braun, who had just walked, over to third. This would lead to Roy Halladay being replaced by David Herndon. Casey McGehee would welcome Herndon by hitting a three-run home run, his second home run of the season, scoring both Braun and Fielder, as he busted the game wide open, giving the Brewers a 7-0 lead. Four batters later, with the bases loaded, via a walk to Kotsay, a single to Betancourt, sending Kotsay to second base, and after Herndon is replaced on the mound by Mike Zagurski, a walk to Kottaras, moving both runners up a base, and with still two men out, the Brewers took a 9-0 lead on a single by pinch hitter Erick Almonte, knocking in both Kotsay and Betancourt, while sending Kottaras up to second base. That would be the final score as the Phils would go weakly in the last three innings.

Roy Halladay (2-1, 2.83) took the lost as he went six and two-thirds innings, giving up six runs on ten hits and two walks, while striking out only three. Not one of his better starts.

Sean Green, Zack Braddock and Mike McClendon combined for three scoreless innings, giving up just a walk (McClendon) between them.

The Phils had only two hits in the ballgame, a double by Shane Victorino and a single by Jimmy Rollins. The offense did not do anything last night, other than play dead.

The Phils (10-6, 1st) will conclude their series with the Brewers (9-8, T-1st) with an afternoon game, already in progress. The Phils will be trying to avoid a sweep.
