Brewers Beat Phillies Again 9-6

From Sportsline.com:

Rickie Weeks and Bill Hall have brought plenty of power to the top of the Milwaukee lineup.

Weeks and Hall homered in the eighth inning to help the Milwaukee Brewers win their third straight road game with a 9-6 victory Saturday night over the Philadelphia Phillies.

With Weeks in the leadoff spot, the Brewers are 15-11. With Hall at No. 2, the team is 7-4.

"Both have been doing a fine job up there," Milwaukee coach Ned Yost said. "They give us a lot of different abilities up there with power and speed. They gave us some big two-out run production tonight."

Carlos Lee also homered and Hall drove in four runs for the Brewers, who have won all five games over the Phillies this season.

Jimmy Rollins had three hits with a homer and three runs scored for Philadelphia, which has lost nine of 11 since going 13-1 at the start of the month.

Weeks, who is hitting .500 (12 for 24) in his last seven games, launched a two-run homer into the left-field seats off reliever Ryan Franklin (1-4) for his fifth homer of the season. Hall's shot went even farther, reaching the second deck in left field for his 12th homer.
