After dropping a heart breaker in the tenth inning the previous night, the Brewers hosted the final game in their series against the Phillies on Sunday (9/11). Milwaukee had Yovani Gallardo on the mound trying to avoid the sweep.
The game began as a low scoring affair. Milwaukee managed to put together a run in the second inning and the game would remain 1-0 until the sixth when the heart of the Phillies line-up hit two solo home runs to make it 2-1 in Philadelphia's favor. Gallardo would recover and pitch a scoreless seventh inning to give him one of his best starts of the year, giving up two runs and striking out a season high twelve batters.
Milwaukee's dormant offense woke up in the seventh. With two outs, center fielder Nyjer Morgan doubled to send right fielder Corey Hart home from second to tie the game at two. Then left fielder Ryan Braun smacked a single to send Morgan home for the go-ahead run.
Frankie Rodriguez came out of the bullpen and held the eighth inning and John Axford closed the door in the ninth. The Milwaukee Brewers win game four with a final score of 3-2.
The Brew Crew sits at six games above the St. Louis Cardinals in the N.L. Central Division after Sunday's match up. Milwaukee has Monday off before hosting the Colorado Rockies for a two game series Tuesday (9/13). Zack Greinke will be the starting pitcher for the Brewers. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
