Prior to game one last night, the Brewers had dropped three straight to the red hot Reds in Cincinnati. They managed a total of 4 runs in the 3 games played. The Phillies spent the weekend facing the San Francisco Giants in Philly and were barely able to salvage the final game of the 3 game series on Sunday with a 4-3 twelve inning victory.
In the series opener between these two teams yesterday, the Phillies avoided another overtime affair by scoring 4 runs in the bottom of the ninth after trailing 6-3 entering their last at bat and gained a 7-6 regulation win. A sacrifice fly by Ty Wigginton broke a 6-6 tie and won it for Philly. Roy Halladay, one of the many injury casualties suffered by the Phillies this season made his second start after being sidelined nearly two months and was ineffective allowing the Brewers 6 runs on 8 hits thru 6 frames.
Carlos Gomez had a 3 run roundtripper for the Brewers. Chase Utley and Ryan Howard homered back to back in the 1st inning off Milwaukee starter, Joe Wolf. Start your MLB Betting action on Brewers vs. Phillies game.
The Phillies (43-54) remain in the N.L. East cellar, 2.5 games behind the Miami Marlins. They are 6-4 in their last 10, but a very disappointing 19-29 at home. The Brewers (44-51) are fortunate to be part of a division including the Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros, allowing them to reside in fourth place of the N.L. Central with just one more win than the Phils this season. They have won just 4 of the past 10 and are a bad road team posting an 18-28 mark away from Brewtown.
Tonight’s pitchers are righthander Zach Greinke (9-3, 3.57 ERA) for the Brewers and southpaw, Cliff Lee (1-6, 3.72 ERA), who deserves more than a single win for the way he has pitched this year for Philadelphia.
