Hard to top the Brewers blowing a 6-3 lead Monday night when Philadelphia scored four runs in the 9th to win 7-6, but Milwaukee found a way Tuesday night. After Zack Greinke delivered a seven inning gem, allowing only a first inning run, three hits and setting down the final 14 batters he faced, the Brewers bullpen blew a 6-1 lead giving up a half dozen runs in the bottom of the 8th as the Phillies bookened the 7-6 final. Working on 11 days rest and perhaps his final game as a Brewer, Greinke needed only 87 pitches before he was pulled to start the 8th. He even helped himself with his first home run of the year. Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Gomez also hit solo shots against Cliff Lee in building the lead. Jose Veras started the 8th and gave up a hit and recorded an out before getting lifted for Manny Para. Pinch hitter Eric Kratz hit the first pitch thrown by Parra for a two run homer. Parra then walked three straight batters when Karemon Loe got the call. He gave up a three run double to Carlos Ruiz and a bloop single to Hunter Pence that capped the Phillies rally. So far this year, the Brewers bullpen has lost 24 games, most in the National League, they've blown 18 saves, second most, and walked 145 batters, second most in the NL. Milwaukee (44-52) will send Marco Estrada against Vance Worley in the series and road trip finale on Wednesday afternoon.
