(SportsNetwork.com) – In the second installment of a four-game series of Philadelphia Phillies versus the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park, and Cole Hamels hasn’t earned a win in more than a month, he won four straight starts from May 8-23, but is 0-3 with a 3.82 earned run average in his last five appearances.
The Phillies are 1-4 in that span and were hammered by the New York Yankees in Hamels’ previous start on Wednesday in a 10-2 setback in the Bronx. Said so, he has fared well in 12 career starts against the Brewers as evidenced by a 7-3 record and a 3.71 ERA.
Taylor Jungmann will make his fifth career start for Milwaukee and the rookie is 2-1 with a 2.74 earned run average in four appearances. Jungmann has won both of his road starts and will face the Phillies for the first time.
The Brewers erased a 4-1 deficit in Monday’s 7-4 victory, as Jonathan Lucroy led the comeback with four hits, two RBI and a pair of runs scored. Jimmy Nelson gave up four runs early on and settled down for the win, lasting five innings with three strikeouts and two walks. Francisco Rodriguez posted his 16th save with a scoreless ninth.
Philadelphia lost for the fourth time in five tries last night and is an MLB- worst 27-51 on the season.
The Phillies and Brewers are meeting for the first time this season and are scheduled to play three games at Miller Park in August. Philadelphia had won the past four games in this series.
