MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Brewers have dropped four of their last five, after losing to Philadelphia 5-1 Thursday night at Miller Park. The Phillies jumped out to a 4-0 lead after three innings and cruised from there. The Phils rose above .500 for the first time this year. They now have a season-high five-game winning streak. Wily Peralta took the loss. He surrendered all five Philly runs in five innings to drop to 4-7. Peralta gave up seven hits with four walks and a pair of strikeouts. Brewers’ manager Ron Roenicke said the rookie right-hander is more inconsistent than he thought. The skipper said Peralta gets angry and flustered when things go wrong and, “I didn’t think he’d struggle like this.” Tyler Cloyd pitched six-and-two-thirds scoreless innings to get the win. He surrendered four hits with five walks and two strikeouts, as he improved to 2-2. Milwaukee was limited to five singles on the night, while the Phillies scattered 10 hits. Jonathan Lucroy drove home the Crew’s only run on a ground-out in the eighth inning. Michael Young and John Mayberry both went 3-for-5 for Philadelphia, and Delmon Young hit a solo homer. The Brewers and Phils will play again tonight. Young right-hander Alfredo Figaro starts for the Crew against veteran southpaw Cliff Lee. Pregame on WHBL begins at 6:35.
