Just as the momentum began to build and things were looking up, the Phillies showed their not quite ready to be consistent. The Phillies dropped their last two games to the Brewers, including a 4 run lead in Fridays game that ended with a walk off single off Jeremy Horst.
Saturday's game was a different story for the Phillies and despite a 3 ER outing by Kyle Kendrick, the Phils bats just couldn't drive in any runs, collecting 10 hits and recording only 3 runs. All three runs were driven in by Dom Brown on a solo shot in the second inning and a double in 8th to pull the Phillies within a run. Brown now leads the league in homeruns with 19.
Ben Revere pinch hit in the bottom of the 9th with two outs and down 4-3. Revere hit a shot to right (which was probably as far as he could hit it) but fell short of the wall to end the game. The lowly Brewers handed the Phillies their second straight loss and back below a .500 record. In order to get some consistency back to this team for the first time 2011, the Phillies will need to play like the Phillies and less like the Dom Brown's.
