MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Kyle Lohse got his first win since April 22nd, as the Milwaukee Brewers crushed Philadelphia 9-1 at Miller Park Sunday. The veteran right hander gave up just four hits in eight innings, as he snapped a personal five-game losing streak. Lohse retired 17 of his final 18 batters. Had he not given up a homer to Humberto Quintero in the eighth, manager Ron Roenicke said he might have let Lohse pitch the ninth – and go for Milwaukee's first complete game since April 5th of 2011. The Brewers scored four runs in the second inning, highlighted by a two-run triple from Scooter Gennett. It was Milwaukee's 24th triple this season, which leads the National League by far. Carlos Gomez hit a two-run homer in the sixth, on a day when his Bobblehead was given away to 38-thousand-plus fans. Jean Segura made it 8-0 in the seventh with a two-run single. Martin Maldonado capped off the Brewers' scoring with a solo blast in the eighth. Ryan Braun left in the third, as a sore thumb acted up again. Phillies' starter Jonathan Pettibone was rocked for six runs, four earned, over five-and-a-third innings. The loss dropped him to 3-2. The Brewers took the final three games of their four-game series with Philly. The two teams completed their season series with Milwaukee going 5-2. The Crew opens a series at Miami tonight. Yovani Gallardo faces the Marlins' Ricky Nolasco. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 5:35.
