CBS Philly: Phillies Go Down Quietly, 5-2, To Brewers
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Gio Gonzalez continued to make the most of his second stint in Milwaukee, allowing one run while pitching into the sixth inning as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-2 on Wednesday night.
Gonzalez (2-0) was hardly dazzling in his fourth start this season, but the veteran lefty did enough to again reward the Brewers' faith in bringing him back. Gonzalez finished last year with Milwaukee, going 3-0 in five starts down the stretch, and the Brewers made it to the NL Championship Series. But he was a free agent until he signed a minor league contract with the Yankees in March.
Phillies Nation: Phillies look to overcome Ryan Braun and Brewers on Wednesday night
Over the course of his 13-year career in Major League Baseball, outfielder Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers has done a lot of damage against a lot of opposing teams.
Braun, who served a 65-game suspension back in 2013 after admitting to using performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) during his 2011 National League MVP-winning campaign, has blasted 331 home runs over that career.
The Philadelphia Phillies have been victimized by Braun more than most, to the point that he is now high on the list of "Phillie-killers", those players who consistently do damage when the two teams meet.
The Good Phight: Night of the Phillie Killers: Brewers 6, Phillies 1
Since joining the Phillies' rotation in late April, Jerad Eickhoff had been excellent. But even he was powerless to stop two of the worst "Phillie killers" the National League has to offer. Yasmani Grandal and Ryan Braun hit home runs, and combined with an offense that couldn't get much going, the Phillies lost by a score of 6-1 to the Milwaukee Brewers.
Grandal started things off with a three-run shot in the second inning (His 12th career homer against the Phillies), and Braun added a two-run blast in the third.
Phillies Nation: Eickhoff, Phillies offense struggle in loss to Brewers
Final: Brewers 6, Phillies 1
Just like in 2018, an impressive first quarter performance from the Philadelphia Phillies has the fanbase excited. The Phils were hoping to use that excitement - as well as momentum from last night's triumphant victory - as they looked for another victory Tuesday night. They were unable to do so and instead, suffered a 6-1 defeat at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers.
After a seven-pitch first inning, Eickhoff gave up two singles to Mike Moustakas and Jesus Aguilar to set up first and third with no outs in the top of the second inning.
Brew Crew Ball: Brewers slug their way to 6-1 victory against Phillies
WP: Brandon Woodruff (6-1)
LP: Jerad Eickhoff (2-2)
HR: Yasmani Grandal (7), Ryan Braun (9)
The Milwaukee Brewers' offense powered past its struggles and took a 6-1 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies.
All eyes were on number one prospect Keston Hiura as he made his big league debut. Before Kestdaddy could get his first at-bat, Yasmani Grandal got the scoring going with a three-run homer. Hiura followed Yaz's bomb up with his first major league hit, a single off Phillies pitcher Jerad Eickhoff.
