Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Maikel Franco hit his third homer in two days, Odubel Herrera homered and reached base five times and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10-6 on Saturday night.
   

Franco hit his fifth homer and drove in four runs after hitting two homers in a 5-2 win over Milwaukee on Friday night.
   

Phillies right-hander Charlie Morton exited in the second inning after straining his left hamstring running to first on a sacrifice attempt. Brett Oberholtzer (1-0) replaced Morton.
   

Franco hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in the fourth inning off Chase Anderson (1-2).
   

Ryan Braun had a two-run homer and Chris Carter hit a solo shot for Milwaukee, which pulled within a run in the eighth.
   

Herrera had three hits -- including a two-run homer during a three-run ninth -- and two walks.
