The Milwaukee Brewers had a chance to win their fifth series of the season with a victory Sunday in Philadelphia.
Milwaukee had out hit the Phillies, but trailed 3-0 after four innings. Starter Wily Peralta allowed a ground rule double, a play that originally was called a home run but overruled on a replay review due to fan interference, and was removed with runners on second and third with one out.
Reliever Neil Ramirez entered and promptly served up back-to-back home runs, busting the game open with five runs in the fifth to make it 8-0.
The Brewers would go on to lose 8-1 to split the four-game series.
