Brewers Lose in Philly 2-5

Brewers starter Victor Santos gave up two runs and three hits in six innings. He has allowed two runs or fewer in six consecutive outings and 10 of his 12 starts. But the hard-luck right-hander is just 2-5 despite a 2.74 ERA.

"Santos did a great job. Just one pitch to Thome got away from him," Brewers manager Ned Yost said.

Pat Burrell started Philadelphia's fourth with a single off the left-field wall, and Thome followed with a shot into the right-center field seats to tie it at 2. Thome, who has struggled all season, connected for the second straight game and has five homers this season.

"His swing is starting to get there," Manuel said. "He made some adjustments."

Cirillo hit his third homer into the left-field seats to give the Brewers a 1-0 lead in the first.

Lyle Overbay singled to start the fourth and Carlos Lee poked a hit-and-run single into an open hole at shortstop to put runners at first and third. Overbay scored on Bill Hall's fielder's choice grounder back to the mound to make it 2-0.
