Coming off two wins in a row by the Philadelphia Phillies vs. the Marlins, the Phillies kept their momentum shifted as they woke up on the right of the bed as they played as well as they’ve been playing vs the Milwaukee Brewers. Zach Wheeler was on fire as he had an absolutely great performance with giving up no runs, nine strikeouts, and no walks in six innings. They played up to their standards shutting out a very good Brewers team 12-0. In the top of the 1st, the Phillies got out to a 2-0 lead as Bryce Harper hit one out that was a two run bomb. In the top of the 2nd, Freddy Galvis hit one out to put the Phillies up 3-0. In the top of the 4th inning, Brad Miller came in clutch as he hit one out as well to make the score 4-0. In the top of the 8th inning, Andrew McCutchen homered to left center to make the score 5-0, then Ronald Torreyes singled to left that scored Didi Gregorius to make it 6-0. The scoring drought for Milwaukee continued as they gave up a grand slam by Jean Segura to put the Phillies in the drivers seat as they lead 11-0. The Phillies added one more run in the top of the 9th as Brad Miller hit a deep bomb (his second homer of the game) to make the Phillies go up 12-0.

The Philadelphia Phillies didn’t have it in them as they took a really bad defeat to their stomaches as the Brewers thrashed them, 10-0. Coming in to this game, on the Phillies pitching side, Aaron Nola had a hard time on the mound giving up three earned runs as well as six strikeouts. It was all Milwaukee all throughout the game. The runs started for the Brewers in the bottom of the 3rd where they scored a total of five runs in that bottom half inning and all of the scoring continued their way and ended up winning by a touchdown and a field goal, 10-0. Brewers’ Eric Lauer had an amazing pitching performance as he pitched 7.0 innings, with only giving up only one walk and five strikeouts.
Wednesday, September 8th
It looked like it was going to be a very fun night of Phillies offense towering hits and scoring when Bryce Harper did his thing by hitting a bomb to put the Phillies up 1-0 in the top of the first inning. In the bottom of the half inning, the Phillies fell a part badly, especially with their pitching as they gave up three runs in the bottom of the first. In the top of the third the Phillies had a bright sign as they really got it going and made the game interesting as they made traffic on the base path and did what they needed to do which was to tie the game at three. That might’ve jinxed what they have done earlier in the game as they ended up losing by one run, 4-3.
NEXT UP: The 71-68 now travel back to Philadelphia to play the 63-77 Colorado Rockies for a four game series which will start on Thursday, Sept 9 at 7:05pm with Ranger Suarez being the Phillies starter vs. Antonio Senzatela.
