Another Late Rally Gives Phillies Sweep of Brewers
Jimmy Rollins hit an RBI single off Francisco Rodriguez with two outs in the 10th and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied in their last at-bat for the fourth straight day, beating the Milwaukee Brewers to complete their first three-game sweep of the season on Wednesday.
The five-time defending NL East champions have won four in a row, including three walkoff wins.
Rollins had the winning hit in the 12th against San Francisco on Sunday. The Phillies scored four runs off Rodriguez in the ninth in a 7-6 win Monday, and six in the eighth in a 7-6 win Tuesday.
Earlier in the day, the Phillies signed Cole Hamels to a $144 million, six-year deal that prevents the 2008 World Series MVP from becoming a free agent in November.
