Phils Toppled By Brew Crew, 10-0

The Philadelphia Phillies, (71-67) dropped the first game against the Milwaukee Brewers who improve to an 85-54 record on the season. With the win, Milwaukee has an 11 game lead over second-place Cincinnati.

For Philadelphia to be considered a serious contender for post-season play, Aaron Nola must start to dominate. While not pitching bad in this one, Nola only managed 5 innings allowing 6 hits, 3 earned runs with a pair of walks, and two strikeouts.

His opponent, Eric Lauer was much better and went 7 innings with 4 hits and seven strikeouts. Brewers manager, Craig Counsell was very happy with the Lauer outing. “I thought he was excellent, just in complete control of the game, complete control of the hitters, complete control of the counts” the manager gushed.

To The Action

Eduardo Escobar led the offensive production with a two-run ground-rule double and an RBI single that made it a 9-0 game.

Ramon Rosso got hit around in relief of Nola with the Brewers scoring 3 runs off 2 hits in his 2/3 of an inning. Cam Bedrosian and Enyel De Los Santos also saw action in this one.

Against Milwaukee this season, Philadelphia is now 5-1 and the same squads square again on Wednesday evening.
