Brewers play small ball in 5-2 victory

The Milwaukee Brewers proved Wednesday you do not need to hit homers to win big games after beating the Philadelphia Phillies 5-2. Entering the third inning tied 1-1, a bases loaded walk to Mike Moustakas and a two-run single by Jesus Aguilar gave the Brewers a 4-1 advantage. Moustakas would add another tally in the fifth inning on an error by Phillies centerfielder Andew McCutchen. After giving up the error, McCutchen would narrow the lead with an RBI single, but the run was moot as the Phillies would get no closer.


Gio Gonzalez continued his hot start, pitching 5 1/3 innings, giving up just a solo home run while striking out three.


The Brewers complete their swing through Philadelphia this afternoon at 12:05.
