Brewers playoff run is brief, lose to Phillies in four games

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Philadelphia Phillies found plenty of power to go with their pitching, right in time for the NL championship series.

Pat Burrell broke out of his slump in a big way with two homers, one a three-run shot, and Jimmy Rollins and Jayson Werth added solo homers Sunday to lead the Phillies to a 6-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers that clinched their first trip to the NLCS since 1993.

Overshadowed by the offensive barrage was a gem by Joe Blanton, who held the Brewers to one run after an eight-day layoff.
