The Phillies were looking to end their three-game losing streak as they entered Milwaukee last night. Chase Utley responded well to being voted to the All-Star Game with his two-run home run in the first inning, his seventh of the season. On the night he was 2-for-3 with a walk, two RBIs and two runs scored as the Phillies would go on to win by a score of 3-2. More here.
Ruben Amaro spoke to reporters prior to Monday night's game against the Brewers and he doesn't like the recent play of the team. Amaro told reporters, "I didn't anticipate our guys being this poor. Because they are. They are this poor." He went on to say, "We think that they're better. But they haven't shown it. So at some point we're going to have to make some changes." More here.
Phillies don't have a timetable for the return of Double-A pitcher Jesse Biddle from the temporary inactive list. He was placed on the inactive list last week to give the 22-year-old a mental break. More here.
