UTLEY GETS 4 HITS BUT PHILLIES LOSE TO BREWERS 3-1

Phillies starter Adam Morgan pitched well enough to win most games.

Not even four hits by soon-to-be-ex-Phillie Chase Utley could help Friday night in Milwaukee.

Khris Davis’ solo home run and RBIs from Jean Segura and Jonathan Lucroy backed seven scoreless innings from starter Wily Peralta to give the Brewers a 3-1 win over the Phillies on Friday at Miller Park.

Friday’s performance was Peralta’s best since returning from the disabled list on July 28. The big right-hander scattered six hits over seven innings while striking out three. The outing was a positive sign for the Brewers, as Peralta had allowed nine runs in his last 10 1/3 innings (two starts) entering Friday.

“I’m feeling better and better each start,” Peralta said. “Tonight felt pretty good. I felt strong and commanded my pitches.”

Phillies starter Adam Morgan retired the final 11 batters he faced and surrendered just three hits to the Brewers over six innings, while potential trade candidate Chase Utley collected four of the Phils’ nine hits.

“We got a lot of hits, but couldn’t get any big hits,” said Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin, whose team went 1-for-13 with runners in scoring position and left 10 runners on base.
