Brewers Finish Phils Again

Brewers Finish Phils Again

MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Jean Segura homered and Jonathan Lucroy hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the sixth inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.

Domonic Brown hit his NL-leading 19th home run, and had a two-run double in the eighth to account for all of the Phillies' runs.

Tyler Thornburg (1-0) pitched two innings of scoreless relief to earn his first major-league victory. A top prospect for the Brewers coming into the season, he joined the team Wednesday despite going 0-7 with a 6.75 ERA in 12 starts for Triple-A Nashville.

Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth for his fourth save in four chances.

With the score tied 1-1, the Brewers strung together four consecutive hits in the sixth off Kyle Kendrick (6-4) to score two runs and take the lead for good.
