Chris Carter, Jonathan Villar, Chase Anderson lead Brewers past Phillies 4-1
PHILADELPHIA — Chris Carter and Jonathan Villar homered, Chase Anderson pitched effectively into the sixth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the reeling Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 Thursday night, June 2nd.
Anderson (3-6) allowed one run and three hits, striking out six in 5 2/3 innings to help Milwaukee win its eighth straight game in Philadelphia.
Maikel Franco homered for the Phillies, who have lost seven in a row.
Jerad Eickhoff (2-8) gave up two runs and eight hits in 6 2/3 innings. The right-hander left after a hard one-hopper back to the mound bounced off his foot.
Phillies reliever Hector Neris pitched out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the eighth. He struck out Carter, retired pinch-hitter Alex Presley on a second-to-home fielder’s choice and fanned Aaron Hill to end the inning.
