Most were ready to hand Roy Halladay and the Phillies a win on Tuesday
night. Halladay entered game 2 of the series against the Brewers with a 2-0 record and a 1.23 earned run average in his first three outings.
But Randy Wolf didn’t back down, despite the lack of confidence in him. Wolf held the Phillies to 2-hits in 6-shutout innings in the Milwaukee Brewers 9-0 win on a rainy night in Philadelphia. It’s the first series loss for the Phillies of the season.
Halladay allowed 10 hits and 6 runs in 6 2/3 innings. Ryan Braun and Casey McGehee both homered for the Brewers in the win. Milwaukee broke the game open with 6-runs in the seventh inning.
The Brewers moved into a first place tie in the Central Division with the Reds, sharing identical 9-8 records. Cincinnati has lost 3-straight games.
Chris Narveson (1-0 1.45 ERA) gets the nod this afternoon as the Brewers go for the sweep in the series. He’ll face the Phillies Cliff Lee (2-1 4.19 ERA).
