The weather in Philadelphia was almost as miserable as the Brewers' performance tonight. Ryan Braun gave the Brewers a 1-0 lead in the top of the first with his second home run of the season, but Manny Parra allowed four runs in the bottom half on four hits and two walks, effectively removing the Brewers from the game.

The Crew was briefly back in the game in the top of the fifth when Ryan Braun's second home run of the game brought the Brewers back within two at 5-3, but Jorge Julio emptied a gas can onto the fire, allowing four earned runs on two hits and three walks in two thirds of an inning.

In other news, Rickie Weeks left the game in the second inning after colliding with J.J. Hardy when both were in pursuit of a ground ball. Weeks was complaining of dizziness, and will likely be re-examined tomorrow.

In good news, Ryan Braun's two home runs were part of a 5-for-5 day for the left fielder, setting a career high in hits. It was just his second multi-hit game in the Brewers' last eleven contests.
