MILWAUKEE, Wis (WSAU) Jimmy Rollins homered and Shane Victorino chipped in with two RBI as the Phillies beat the Brewers 6-5 at Miller Park. The win put the Phillies magic number to win the NL East at three.
Rollins led off the game with his 21st homer of the year and Ryan Howard hit a run scoring double later in the inning to put the Phils up 2-0. Victorino's two-run double in the second and Pedro Feliz' two run single in the fifth was more than enough for winning pitcher Joe Blanton. He allowed all 5 Brewer runs in five-and-two-thirds innings to up his record to 12-7.
Mat Gamel had a three run homer for the Brewers. Dave Bush took the loss, falling to 5-9, giving up five runs in four-and-a-third. The Brewers drop 2 games below .500 and after a day of today play in Colorado starting Tuesday.
