Jimmy Rollins had one of many hits in the fifth inning in Milwaukee last night, a three run home run on way to a 9-4 route of the Brewers.Â Rookie J.A. Happ(11-4) notched his 11th win and went 5.2 innings allowing only two runs on six hits to tie for the National League win victory for rookies.Â Pedro Feliz and Shane Victorino also had three hits a piece for the Phillies who got back on track after another tough loss, check out Phillies Phandom for more.
Jeff Suppan is just terrible when he faces the Phillies, first it was in the NLDS last year, now this.Â Suppan(7-11) only went 4.1 innings but allowed twelve hits and eight runs (seven earned) and raised his ERA for the year over 5 to 5.04.Â Prince Fielder and Ryan Howard continue to slug it out for the NL RBI lead as they both finished this game at 132 for the year.
Going to the eighth inning, it looked like the Dodgers may have another let down against the National League’s worst team, until Furcal took the game into his hands.Â Rafael Furcal hit a solo home run in the eighth inning and gave the Dodgers a 7-6 lead which would be the eventual final score.Â Ramon Tronsoco(5-4) got the win in relief as he worked 1.1 innings of scoreless relief prior to the eighth inning and Jonathan Broxton got his 36th save of the season with a perfect ninth inning.
Nats starter J.D. Martin had a rough outting but was let off the hook late in the game.Â Martin went only three innings and allowed five runs on six hits, but his offense got him a no decision.Â Willie Harris drove in two runs in the game including what tied the game in the sixth.Â Ron Villone(4-6) took the loss though as he gave up the homerun to Furcal in the eighth inning, Centerfield Gate has more on this loss, it is number 100 on the year.
