Brewers 9, Phillies 1

Associated Press  |  Last updated June 09, 2013
Carlos Gomez hit a two-run homer on his bobblehead day, Scooter Gennett had a two-run triple and Kyle Lohse pitched eight strong innings for his first win in eight starts to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-1 on Sunday. Milwaukee slugger Ryan Braun left after the third inning with a sore right thumb, which has been a lingering problem for him. Still, the Brewers took the final three games of the four-game series. Gennett's triple highlighted a four-run second inning and Gomez's homer in the sixth off starter Jonathan Pettibone was plenty of insurance for Lohse's first victory since beating San Diego on April 22. Lohse (2-6) experienced minor hamstring tightness in his left leg after running the bases during his previous start Tuesday, but showed no ill effects. His only major hiccup was Humberto Quintero's first home run of the season, a shot into the Phillies' bullpen in right. Lohse gave up four hits, walked one and struck out six. Jean Segura, who came in leading the NL in hits with 82, singled home two runs in the seventh. Martin Maldonado added a solo homer in the eighth. Jim Henderson, just back from a strained right hamstring, pitched a scoreless ninth. Pettibone (3-2) allowed six runs, four earned, and four hits in 5 1-3 innings. He struck out four but walked two and hit two batters with pitches in his first career start against the Brewers. Milwaukee got to Pettibone in the second and then again in the sixth. Logan Schafer singled in the sixth and then Gomez hit the first pitch from Pettibone into the Brewers' bullpen in left for his 11th home run of the season. After Maldonado walked, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel brought in Jeremy Horst. The Brewers scored four runs in the second. Pettibone got in trouble right away by making an error. He misplayed a bunt by Gomez, who went to second on Yuniesky Betancourt's single. Pettibone then hit Maldonado with a pitch, loading the bases. Gomez scored on Juan Francisco's grounder to first. Gennett, who made his major league debut Tuesday night against Oakland, tripled to right-center for the first two RBIs of his career. He scored on Lohse's sacrifice. NOTES: Schafer pinch hit for Braun and then replaced him in left field. ... The Phillies placed C Erik Kratz on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury and selected the contract of C Steven Lerud from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. ... The Brewers reinstated Henderson from the 15-day DL and optioned RHP Tyler Thornburg to Triple-A Nashville. Thornburg pitched two scoreless innings of relief Saturday night for his first major league win. ... Betancourt caught Laynce Nix's foul ball while tip-toeing down the steps of the Phillies' dugout in the fifth inning. Third base umpire Mark Carlson still signaled no play. ... The Phillies have homered in 14 consecutive games.
