MILWAUKEE -- The Phillies’ offense had a miserable day in the team’s 9-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday afternoon.
The Phillies had three singles in the first inning -- did not score a run -- and didn’t have another hit until Humberto Quintero’s solo homer with two outs in the eighth. The Phils finished the day with five hits, four of which were singles.
The Phils won the first game of this four-game series then lost three in a row to fall to 31-33.
Starting pitching report
Jonathan Pettibone (3-2) allowed four hits and six runs, four earned, over 5 1/3 innings. He committed a fielding error, hit a batter and allowed a two-run triple in the Brewers' four-run second inning. He also gave up a two-run homer in the sixth.
Kyle Lohse (2-6) won his first game since April 22. He allowed just four hits and one run over eight innings. He set the Phils down in order five times.
Bullpen report
Jeremy Horst allowed two runs in two-thirds of an inning as his ERA swelled to 5.55.
Jonathan Papelbon got some work in the eighth and allowed a solo homer to Martin Maldonado.
At the plate
Quintero’s homer was his first of the season. The Phils have homered in 14 straight games. They are 7-7 in those games.
Rookie Scotter Gennett had a two-run triple for Milwaukee and Carlos Gomez added a two-run homer.
In the field
Pettibone made a costly error in the second inning.
Milwaukee rightfielder Norichika Aoki gunned down Michael Young at the plate to thwart the Phillies in the first inning.
