Late Grand Slam Dooms Phillies Against Brewers

Corey Hart’s grand slam with two outs in the eighth inning prevented Philadelphia’s Cliff Lee from getting a rare win as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Phillies 7-4 on Thursday night.

Livan Hernandez (4-1) pitched a scoreless eighth for the victory. Jim Henderson recorded the final two outs for his third save in four chances, getting Erik Kratz to ground out with the bases loaded to end the game.

Lee allowed two solo home runs by Ryan Braun and a solo homer by Aramis Ramirez, but little else. With two outs in the eighth and no runners on, Lee got Rickie Weeks to ground to third, but Kevin Frandsen made an errant throw for a two-base error to keep the inning alive.

Josh Lindblom (2-3) intentionally walked Braun, and Ramirez walked to load the bases. Hart hit a 2-2 pitch just over the wall in right when Domonic Brown couldn’t make the leaping catch.
