Adam Lind singled in the game winning run in the 11th inning last night, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 8-7 win and four-game sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
The sweep if the first of the season for the Brewers, who have now won three straight series. They’ve won five in a row for the first time since last August. The Brewers are 8-2 in their last 10 games.
Jonathan Lucroy had three hits to pace the Brewers 16-hit attack. The Brewers scored 33-runs and collected 59-hits during the four game series.
The Brewers started the series in close proximity with the Phillies, who own the worst record in the Major Leagues. Now there’s some separation as the Brewers have moved six games in front of the Phillies.
The Brewers blew a 7-4 lead when the Phillies scored three times off of Brewers relievers Jonathan Broxton and Will Smith.
The Brewers head to Cincinnati to open a weekend series against the Reds.
