Phillies drop rubber match to Brewers, fail to gain ground in NL East race

Final score: Brewers 4, Phillies 3

Things were looking great for the Philadelphia Phillies following their 12-0 thrashing of the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. It would be their last series of the regular season against a truly formidable opponent, but hey, why not grab a series victory on the way out?

But things went south on Tuesday, and they continued in that direction on Wednesday. The Phillies lost 4-3 to drop the once-promising series and miss an opportunity to make up ground on the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves, who lost Wednesday as well.
