Phillies at Brewers: Pre-Game Notes

August 18, 2012
The Phillies were handed another loss by the Brewers on Friday night. Ryan Braun homered yet again, and Vance Worley's struggles continued in the 6-1 defeat. The Phils will send Cole Hamels, who is on a 22 inning scoreless streak, to the mound to right the ship.
