Four hits, two RBIs for Jonathan Lucroy as Brewers defeat Phillies on the road, 7-4
PHILADELPHIA — Jonathan Lucroy had four of the Brewers’ season high-tying 16 hits and drove in two runs, leading Milwaukee to a 7-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night, June 29th in a matchup of the two worst teams in baseball.
Ryan Braun had three hits with a double and an RBI, and Adam Lind and Aramis Ramirez each had a pair of RBIs for the Brewers, who have won five of seven.
Cesar Hernandez had a pair of hits and an RBI for Philadelphia.
The Phillies fell to a major league-worst 27-51 hours after the Phillies introduced Andy MacPhail as the new man in charge of the club.
The veteran baseball executive joined the Phillies with plans to take over as team president after this season. He’ll eventually replace Pat Gillick, who helped choose his successor. MacPhail will serve as a special assistant to Gillick for the rest of this season, then take over all business and baseball operations.
