Roberto Hernandez dominates, Philadelphia Phillies defeat Milwaukee Brewers 4-1

The Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday night by a score of 4-1, to extend their winning streak to three.

The Phillies got off to a terrific start, with a Chase Utley homer in the top of the first. The Brewers quickly answered back in the bottom of the second inning, as Lyle Overbay hit a single that scored Aramis Ramirez.

In the top of the sixth, Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run shot that scored Cameron Rupp. They capped off the scoring in the top of the seventh when Rupp singled, bringing Marlon Byrd home.

Roberto Hernandez was outstanding. He went eight innings and allowed just three hits on one run, requiring only 84 pitches to do so.

Hernandez is now 4-8 on the season with a 4.22 ERA. To see him go this deep in the ball game was incredible.

The Phils will go for the four-game sweep on Thursday, with David Buchanan on the mound.
