Brown backs Lee as Phillies beat Brewers 7-5

Posted:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Domonic Brown homered, tripled and drove in four runs to back up the effective pitching of Cliff Lee and the Philadelphia Phillies held on for a 7-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.

Brown also singled and had a chance for the cycle when he came up in the seventh, but walked.

Cliff Lee (7-2) was practically unhittable through seven innings, allowing three hits with 11 strikeouts and no walks before running into trouble in the eighth when the Brewers scored four runs.

Antonio Bastardo earned his first save in three chances with a shaky ninth. Bianchi's RBI single pulled Milwaukee with two runs, and the Brewers had the bases loaded with two outs. But Bastardo got pinch-hitter Martin Maldonado to fly out to center to end the game.

Mike Fiers (1-4) gave up seven runs in 1 2-3 innings.
