Same old problems for the Brewers in loss to the Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies moved over .500 for the first time this season, beating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 on Thursday night at Miller Park.

Tyler Cloyd allowed just 4 hits over 6 2/3 innings and Delmon Young homered in the win.

Cloyd (2-2), held the Brewers to singles by Jean Segura, Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez through 6 2/3 innings.

The Phillies scored in four of the first five innings on Thursday as Willy Peralta gave up five runs on eight hits in five innings.  He walked four and struck out two.  Peralta (4-7) has now lost for the fifth time in his last six starts.

Brewer Notes

Left-hander Tom Gorzelanny will start Saturday against the Phillies, filling the spot in the rotation vacated by Marco Estrada.  Estrada went on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday with a strained left hamstring.

Gorzelanny has started 111 games in his Major League Career.  He went 14-10 for the Pirates in 2007, starting 32 games.  He started 23 games for the Cubs in 2010.
