What We Learned: Routine win in Philadelphia

New, comments

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday's Results

Brewers 4, Phillies 1

It was one of those games that basically went by the book for the Brewers. Chase Anderson limited the Phillies to one run in 5.2 innings. Brewers got three of their four runs off of home runs, and the back end of the bullpen (Will Smith, Tyler Thornburg, Jeremy Jeffress) shut the Phillies down.
