Brewers hit four long balls but Phillies get win 5-4
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Placido Polanco hit a tying sacrifice fly and Wilson Valdez hustled home with the go-ahead run on an errant throw on the same play, lifting Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies to a 5-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.
Polanco's fly ball to left with the bases loaded in the seventh inning scored Carlos Ruiz. Ryan Braun's throw sailed behind a sliding Ruiz and hit the backstop, allowing Valdez to slide home.
Halladay (17-10) pitched seven innings. Brad Lidge worked the ninth for his 20th save.
Corey Hart hit two solo homers, and Prince Fielder and Alcides Escobar also connected against Halladay. The right-hander allowed four homers for the first time in 342 career games and 316 starts.
