Scooter Gennett
homered and Lyle Overbay hit a grand slam as the Brewers
put up five runs in the 1st inning, but that wasn’t enough as the
Phillies sent the Brewers to another loss. Philly scored five runs of their own
in the top of the 2nd to take a 6-5 lead and they never trailed the
rest of the way.  This was a 9-7 defeat
at Miller Park on Tuesday night.  Wily Peralta was charged with all nine Philadelphia runs.  Kyle Lohse tries to stop the slide tonight in
game 3 of the series.  Coverage begins at
6:35pm on News-Talk 1450 KFIZ.


The Brewers lead
in the N.L. Central is down to just 3 games over St. Louis and 3.5 games over the Reds.
