The Milwaukee Brewers haven't won much lately, but the majority of those victories have come against the Philadelphia Phillies. Milwaukee looks to take the final three of this four-game series when it hosts the finale Sunday. The last-place Brewers (24-37) are just 5-10 since May 25, but four of those wins have come against the Phillies. They won the first two of a three-game set May 31 and June 1 and have won back-to-back games after dropping Thursday's opener 5-1. Rookie Jean Segura raised his average to .342 by going 2 for 4 with a homer, and Jonathan Lucroy hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the sixth to help Milwaukee earn a 4-3 victory Saturday. Lucroy is hitting only .254 on the season but is batting .327 with 25 RBI with runners in scoring position. "Four (hits) in a row (in the sixth inning) is what you want in an offense, especially with the heart of the order right there getting the job done," said Lucroy, whose hit followed singles from Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez before Carlos Gomez followed with an RBI single. Milwaukee hopes its offense can provide some support for Kyle Lohse (1-6, 4.39 ERA), who hasn't received much of it this season but also hasn't helped himself much lately. Lohse's struggles continued Tuesday, when he allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings before Milwaukee beat Oakland 4-3 in 10 innings. He picked up his only victory April 22 and is 0-5 with a 5.53 ERA in seven starts since. He tweaked his hamstring running the bases in the third inning of his last outing but decided to stay in the game. The injury shouldn't hinder him Sunday. "I just tried to get through it and did the best I could," Lohse said. "It wasn't real bad, but I had to make some adjustments mechanically to get through it." The right-hander also has been the victim of a lack of run support, getting a total of six runs over his last 40-23 innings. His 2.33 run-support average is the second-worst in baseball to Miami starter Ricky Nolasco's 2.30. Lohse has been very good in his last four regular-season starts versus the Phillies, though, going 1-1 with a 1.88 ERA. Philadelphia (31-32) has dropped two straight following a five-game winning streak despite having four players with at least two hits Saturday. Domonic Brown hit his NL-best 19th homer and also added a two-run double in the eighth. Brown is hitting .452 with eight homers and 17 RBI over his last 11 games. The Phillies will look to bounce back with help from starter Jonathan Pettibone (3-1, 3.40), who has allowed three runs or fewer in eight of his nine starts but has a 4.86 ERA in three road outings. The rookie's winless streak hit four despite giving up two runs one earned in six innings before John Mayberry hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 11th to give Philadelphia a 7-3 win over Miami on Tuesday. The Phillies are 7-2 when the right-hander pitches.
