Ryan Braun clubbed a fifth inning grand slam and drove in five runs to help the Milwaukee Brewers pull out a 6-1 win and three-game sweep over the Philadelphia Phillies at Miller Park.
Braun’s home run is his 21st this season and 251st of his career, which ties him with Robin Yount for the all-time franchise lead.
Braun’s blast came off of Phillies starter Aaron Harang (5-14) who leads the league in losses. So do the Phillies, who tacked on three more this weekend. The Phillies fell to
46-72, the worst record in the Major Leagues.
Robin Yount spent his entire career with the Brewers, winning a pair of MVP awards.
Taylor Jungmann (7-4) rebounded from a poor outing in Chicago last week, to lead the Brewers to the victory. Jungmann pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing just three hits while walking two and striking out nine. His ERA was lowered to 2.23.
The Brewers open a three-game series against the Miami Marlins at home tonight. Matt Garza (6-12, 4.82 ERA) pitches for the Brewers. Justin Nicolino (1-1, 4.86 ERA) starts for Miami.
