It seems the Brewers cannot get things going in the right direction or sustain any winning streak these days. With the tying run on third base Mike Cameron looked at a called third strike from Phillies pitcher Ryan Madson to end the threat and the Brewers lost to the Phillies by a score of 6-5.
Dave Bush started for the Brewers, but only lasted 4.1 innings giving up five earned runs along with nine hits. The bullpen came in and actually pitched very well for the Brewers. The problem was the Brewers feel behind and when they do that they usually struggle. Down by a 6-1 score Mike Cameron and Mat Gamel hit home runs, but it was not enough as the Brewers eventually fell to the Phillies by a score of 6-5. The Brewers actually played well in this series which is something that I wanted to see. It does show you they have not quit playing hard.
