Brewers 6, Phillies 2
Game 119 - Friday Night, August 17th in Milwaukee
Record - 54-65, 4th Place, 20 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: The Brewers easily handled Vance Worley and the hapless Phils, winning 6-2.
What It Means: The Phillies have put together a crappy little three-game losing streak, dropping them 20 games behind the Nationals.
What Went Wrong: The Phils held a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth when Worley allowed two base runners with two outs. Nyjer Morgan hit a ball to Domonic Brown that should have been caught for the final out of the inning - but it was not. Two runs scored and the Brewers never looked back.
The Phillies managed just six hits, two coming in the ninth inning.
Featured Card: In good news for the team's 2014 or 2015 season, prospect Jesse Biddle threw seven no-hit innings last night for the Clearwater Threshers. Biddle, ranked as the Phillies second best pitching prospect by Baseball America, has now struck out 137 in 129 2/3 innings this season. Born and raised in Philly, Biddle was the team's first round draft pick in the 2010 draft. Call him up.
