"When he was in the stretch, things changed, for sure", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. There were a couple of walks that really hurt him. Jeremy Hellickson has been on the cusp of being dealt for over a year now, but has come back to earth after a standout 2016 season. To compare, Aaron Nola leads the Phillies in wins at 6-6, but has a much better 3.59 ERA. Tommy Joseph's future is in doubt.
Pivetta allowed seven consecutive batters to reach.
Odubel Herrera went 1-3 with a two-run homer. It was the Brewers' seventh win in the last eight games.
After Pivetta sandwiched walks to Davies and Eric Thames around a single to Jonathan Villar, Braun came up and wasted little time.
Something to play for In a word, the Phillies' first half of the season was a disaster.
"I don't think he was on top of it", Counsell said of Davies. "It might have been a ball, actually". Then he was a different pitcher after that. RHP Vince Velasquez (right elbow flexor strain) made a successful rehab start and could return for the three-game series starting Monday against the Marlins. Milwaukee boasts the eighth-best team ERA in MLB, have scored the sixth-most runs in the league while clobbering the second-most homers and stealing (138) and stealing the third-most bases (75). Carlos Torres came on and got out of the sixth.
Mackanin may need to adjust his lineup slightly against the Brewers after outfielder Aaron Altherr suffered a mild ankle strain running out a fifth-inning double Friday. Travis Shaw led the way out of the break on 89 hits, 50 runs, 19 homers and 65 RBI, while Domingo Santana had 86 hits, 54 runs, 15 homers and 50 RBI. Milwaukee also recalled OF Brett Philips from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Instead, he remained in Philadelphia rehabbing his strained left hamstring. As for Nelson, he blanked the Orioles in 7.0 innings but gave up three earned on seven hits in 5.0 innings during his last start against the Yankees.
"He struck out four in a row, then he just didn't locate any of his pitches", Mackanin said. The teams were wearing 1980s-style throwback uniforms as the Brewers honored their 1982 American League championship squad - the only team in franchise history to reach a World Series.
