Brewers avoid the brooms, take series finale against Phillies
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Scooter Gennett and Alex Presley homered in a six-run sixth inning, backing an encouraging outing by struggling starter Wily Peralta in the Milwaukee Brewers' 8-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. The Brewers also hit four doubles in the sixth, when they chased Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff (1-3). Kirk Nieuwenhuis' hard smash off Eickhoff deflected off first baseman Ryan Howard's glove for a double that drove in two runs. The six-run inning was a season high for Milwaukee, and helped the Brewers avoid a three-game sweep. Peralta (1-3) allowed three earned runs and seven hits in six while not walking a batter for the first time in five starts this season. The opening day starter entered the game with an 8.35 ERA. Closer Jeremy Jeffress threw a scoreless ninth for his sixth save.
