One Sentence Summary:  Nick Williams hit his first career grand slam and Jeremy Hellickson pitched well in what could one of his final starts with the Phillies (?) in this 5-2 win over the Brewers.

What It Means:  Once again, the win saved the Phils from being swept in the series and they headed to Miami following the game to open a three-game series with the Marlins.

What Happened:  Hellickson pitched five innings, allowing a two-run home run to Brett Phillips in the fifth.  Hector Neris allowed a pair of hits in the ninth but managed to record his eighth save.  The Phils scored first in the fifth when Odubel Herrera's ground rule double drove home Ty Kelly.
