Gallardo's arm, bat lead Brewers to 8th straight home win

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun hit his NL-leading 32nd home run, Yovani Gallardo won his fourth straight start, and the Milwaukee Brewers extended their home winning streak to nine with a 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.

Braun, Gallardo and Nyjer Morgan each drove in two runs for the Brewers.

After Braun struck out with the bases loaded in Milwaukee's four-run fourth -- the second out he made in the inning -- Braun connected for a two-run homer to center with two outs in the sixth to make it 6-1. He has hit three homers in two games.

Gallardo (12-8) gave up one earned run and four hits, and struck out nine in seven innings.

Vance Worley (6-8) allowed four earned runs and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings.
