Phillies Top Brewers, 4-3
Things weren't looking good for the Phillies from the start of the game.
Even before the game the fans were booing a group of University of Penn students. There was a lot of hype around this "robot" they made to throw out the first pitch. Turns out, the ball didn't even reach home plate.
Anyway, the Phillies found themselves down early 3-0 by the fourth inning. It seemed like a great accomplishment on the Brewers part for hammering Roy Halladay, and now scoring three runs on Cliff Lee immediately.
But then the sixth inning came along and the Phillies performed a three-run rally that started with a walk on Wilson Valdez.
Victornio got on base and then Placido Polanco came through to hit a three-run home run.
Victorino would later seal the deal for Philadelphia when he hit a solo shot to right-center field to give the Phils the 4-3 lead.
Jose Contreras did another great job of closing out the game to pull out the win and prevent a sweep by the Brewers.
Looking Ahead: Phillies @ San Diego Padres 10:05 ET. Roy Oswalt will get the start against Padres' ace, Matt Latos.
