Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Milwaukee's decision to pull Zack Greinke
after seven dominant innings Tuesday night proved to be costly, as the
Philadelphia Phillies scored six runs in the eighth to take a 7-6 decision.
Greinke, pitching on 11 days rest, gave up just one run on three hits. He was
at only 87 pitches when the Brewers pulled him prior to the eighth.
Holding a 6-1 lead, Milwaukee went to Jose Veras. Ty Wigginton singled before
John Mayberry grounded out. Manny Parra came in from the bullpen and pinch-
hitter Erik Kratz greeted him with a homer to left. Parra then walked Shane
Victorino, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard to load the bases with two outs.
Kameron Loe (4-4) entered the game and Carlos Ruiz welcomed him with a three-
run double to left-center field. Hunter Pence followed with an RBI bloop
single to right to give the Phillies a 7-6 lead.
Jonathan Papelbon tossed a perfect home ninth to seal Philadelphia's third
straight victory -- all in their last at-bat.
