Brewers Top Phillies

Brandon Woodruff kept pitching out of jams until a big lead allowed him to settle in.

Woodruff threw one-hit ball for six innings, Yasmani Grandal and Ryan Braun homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-1 on Tuesday night.

The Phillies survived a scare when Bryce Harper made a sliding catch on a foul ball to right field and banged his left knee into the wall in the sixth. Harper came up limping but remained in the game and made an almost identical catch to end the inning. He received a standing ovation only to get booed after striking out again in the eighth.

"It's a little sore," Harper said, adding he doesn't know yet if he can play Wednesday.
Woodruff (6-1) allowed only an infield single to Jean Segura in the first, walked five and struck out five.

"Early on, it was a struggle with the walks," Woodruff said about allowing two runners in each of the first three innings. "The offense did a great job and I was able to pitch ahead."

Philadelphia's Jerad Eickhoff (2-2) gave up five runs and eight hits in four innings.

Grandal gave the Brewers a 3-0 lead in the second when he drove his seventh homer out to right-center.

Braun's two-run shot to center in the third made it 5-0. Braun has 25 career homers against the Phillies, including 14 at Citizens Bank Park.

"He does love hitting here," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

Segura's RBI single off Corbin Burnes in the eighth knocked in Philadelphia's only run.

Brewers second baseman Keston Hiura, the ninth overall pick in the 2017 amateur draft, was 2 for 3 with a walk in his major league debut. He lined a single off Eickhoff's back side in his first at-bat.

"I thought he ball was going to ricochet and I'd be out," Hiura said. "My feet felt so heavy running to first base."

Hiura's teammates helped him celebrate his first day in the big leagues by dumping ice on him in the shower.

"I hope it's the first of many ice baths," he said.
