Brewers outlast Phillies
PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Ryan Braun drove in the go-ahead run with a
sacrifice fly in the 12th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the
Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 on Monday night.
Brandon Kintzler (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings to earn his
first win in the majors.
The NL East-leading Phillies rallied against closer John Axford
in the ninth, tying it at 3 on pinch-hitter Pete Orr’s RBI single
with one out.
But the Brewers held on and snapped a three-game losing streak
to become the fifth straight team to beat Philadelphia in a series
opener. The Phillies haven’t lost a series, however.
