Phils Complete Sweep of Brewers

The Phillies used good pitching and some early offense to complete the sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers. Cole Hamels was effective as the Phillies won 4-2 Sunday night on ESPN.

Hamels had another one of his typical starts but on a much smaller scale. With a 3-0 lead in the sixth, he gave up back-to-back homers to Casey McGehee and Corey Hart. He lasted 6 2/3, allowing two runs on six hits, three walks, and three strike outs. It was a brilliant start by Hamels that was tainted by two bad pitches and his inability to have fast at-bats.

The bull pen was great for the Phils. Chad Durbin, Danys Baez, and J.C. Romero allowed only three hits in the final 2 2/3 innings pitched. Romero notched his first save of the season.

Shane Victorino, Placido Polanco and Ryan Howard all had a pair of hits tonight. The Phils got one run in the first, second, and third inning off of a Polanco RBI double, a Hamels RBI double, and a Wilson Valdez RBI double respectively.

The Phillies will start a pair of two-game series’s against the Pirates and Cubs. Tuesday’s game will be Roy Halladay bobble head day in which he is slated to start.

Doubles: Polanco (8), Hoover (2), Hamels (2), Werth  (19), Valdez (5).

WP: Hamels (). LP: Bush (). S: Romero (1).



Jimmy Rollins could finally be back in the Phillies line up as early as Monday. Rollins sprained his calf a month ago and has finally felt he is ready to play again. He was flown back to Philly from Clearwater on Sunday.
