Braun's Three Blasts Help Brewers Beat Phillies

Ryan Braun heard loud boo-birds in Philadelphia yesterday, and responded with hitting three home runs and driving in seven runs in the Brewers 10-4 win over the Phillies. It marked the second career three-homer game in Braun’s career.

The first home run came in the third-inning off Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick, giving the Brewers the lead 4-1. It ended a streak of 98 at-bats without a home run. The second came an inning later off Kendrick and the third home run in the eighth put the game out of reach 10-4.

With the three long balls, Braun passed Geoff Jenkins for third on the Brewers’ all-time leaderboard, only behind Robin Yount and Prince Fielder.

Besides Braun’s big day, the offense pounded out 15 hits. Jonathan Lucroy also had a three hit game. Carlos Gomez, Jean Segura, Mark Reynolds and Scooter Gennett had two hits each.

The Brewers were able to make it four in a row despite a shaky outing from starting pitcher Kyle Lohse. Lohse picked up his first win of the season going five innings, allowing three runs, walked five and struck out four. After a high pitch count through two innings, Lohse was able to make it to the fifth inning and finish in line for the win.

Game two of the series is tonight when Matt Garza looks for his first win of the season. The Phillies will counter with right-hander Roberto Hernandez. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05PM.
