Brewers Swept by Phillies in 2-6 Loss

Carlos Lee accounted for Milwaukee's lone run with his 16th homer. The Brewers have lost four straight.

Burrell broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth with a long homer to left-center field off Ben Sheets (2-6). Burrell, who won Saturday's game with a three-run home run, has 14 on the season - including five on the homestand.

The Phillies added four runs in the eighth on Jim Thome's RBI single and Utley's 10th homer -- a three-run shot.

"They're hot right now," Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said. "They're swinging the bats well. The whole lineup is hot."

Bill Hall hit a solo homer in the ninth off Wagner to close the scoring.

The Brewers hope to end their losing streak tomorrow as they face the Devil Rays. The starters are going to be Chris Capuano (5-5) for Milwaukee, and Doug Waechter (2-3) for Tampa Bay.
