Phillies complete sweep of Brewers thanks to Nick Castellanos

phillies, brewers

Nick Castellanos smacked a two-run homer to lift the host Philadelphia Phillies to a 2-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.

Castellanos stayed hot after hitting a walk-off RBI double in the 10th inning of Tuesday’s 2-1 victory.

Bryce Harper and Garrett Stubbs each drew two walks for the Phillies, who swept the three-game series with Milwaukee.

Philadelphia starter Aaron Nola (8-2) tossed seven shutout innings and allowed two hits. He didn’t walk anyone and struck out five. Jeff Hoffman worked around a walk in the eighth and Jose Alvarado threw a scoreless ninth for his 11th save of the season.

The Brewers managed only three hits, with two coming from William Contreras.

Milwaukee starter Aaron Ashby (0-2) gave up two hits and two runs in five innings. He walked five and fanned three.

Stubbs and Cristian Pache drew back-to-back walks to begin the bottom of the fifth. Kyle Schwarber grounded into a 4-6-3 double play, but Castellanos responded with his two-run home run to left-center field for a 2-0 advantage.

Contreras hit a leadoff double to left in the Brewers’ half of the seventh. Christian Yelich grounded out to second base, which allowed Contreras to advance to third. Willy Adames then hit a grounder to third baseman Alec Bohm, who fired home to get Contreras at the plate. Rhys Hoskins followed with a popout to end the inning.

In the top of the ninth, pinch hitter Andruw Monasterio struck out before Contreras singled. Yelich and Adames both fanned to end the game.

Milwaukee’s Joey Ortiz opened the third inning with a single to center field. Gary Sanchez then ripped a line drive that looked like it was going to end up being a hit, but second baseman Bryson Stott made a stellar leaping catch.

Each team managed just one hit through the first four innings.

With two outs in the top of the fifth, Ortiz hit a soft grounder to third base, and Bohm charged in and made a terrific defensive play to end the frame.
