The Brewers allowed 22 base runners, including nine on free passes, as the Phillies cruised to a rain-delayed victory at Citizens Bank Park.
The big damage came in a five-run fifth, which featured the return of Beerleaguer favorite R.J. Swindle, who entered the game with the bases loaded and allowed all his inherited runners to score. Pedro Feliz led the charge offensively with a pair of RBI singles, a walk and a solo homer, his first of the season. Feliz, who's off to a very good start, also turned a fine 5-4-5 double play in the ballgame. Jayson Werth got things rolling with a two-run double in the first inning and the Phils never looked back. Jamie Moyer (2-1) allowed four runs over six-plus innings. He pitched better than his line; Ryan Braun, who's a stud, took him deep twice. Ryan Howard represented the only negative with an 0-for-4 game with three strikeouts and seven left stranded, but he'd gladly trade it for the win, which lifted the Phillies back to .500.
