Notes From The Phillies' 9-6 Loss To Milwaukee

Brewers Unable To Sweep Philly

Brewers Unable To Sweep Philly

"No offense to Ryan, but there was no difference in their production", Counsell said. They hand Aaron Nola a baseball. Braun was in the lineup Saturday night. Nola resembles a pitcher who can become a rotation mainstay for years.

Ryan Braun drew a walk to keep the inning going but the Brewers couldn't cash in as Shaw flew out to right. That matched their record in an abysmal 2015 season.

Herrera tied it up with a one-out, solo home run in the seventh inning. These are different times. Philly is playing out the schedule; Milwaukee is looking to extend its lead at the top of the National League Central. The Brewers won 95 games that season, clinching the AL East flag on the final day of the regular season when Yount hit a pair of home runs in a 10-2 thrashing of the Orioles at old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore. That may not happen. The club was already giving him starts to evaluate him, but this ensures his everyday role. "I'm never going to say we are in the clear with that one".

The Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers meet Sunday in MLB action at Miller Park. Neshek struck out the side on 14 pitches.

In 2016, Nelson issued 86 walks, the most in baseball, while also hitting the most batters (17) for the second straight season. He doubled in Friday night's game but then left the field with a mild right hamstring strain. His OPS has climbed above.700.

Tubby tyrant Kim Jong-un gloats as the world reacts to the news of his successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile. Instead, it should awaken us to recognise the extreme danger created by current conditions between the US and China.

Joaquin Benoit got the team through the eighth.

Nola did his part.

The offense managed six runs on nine hits.

Zach Davies and the Brewers fell behind when the Phillies scored two runs in the first inning, but the Brewers quickly turned the tide with their big second inning. He walked one and struck out six. His strikeout rate has bumped a bit from last season. It was the big hit of the game, a grand slam that put Milwaukee up six runs in the early going. He has regained that in recent weeks. "I don't know how severe it is".

The second half of the season started out with a loss and a disappointing showing from Nick Pivetta, but at least the offense showed a little fight and made things interesting in this one. He was burned on a flat change-up to Thames. Hernan Perez is the only Brewer with two hits against him while no current Milwaukee batters have an extra-base hit against him. I think they appreciated the way we played as a team, so much so, that was their way of saying thank you to us.
