MILWAUKEE - Jonathan Lucroy drove in the go-ahead run with a squeeze, and the Milwaukee Brewers showed they could bunt as well as bash, breaking away from the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-4, Sunday to take a two-games-to-none lead in their NL division series. Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer, and fellow slugger Prince Fielder added an RBI single for Milwaukee. But the brawny Brewers, especially Lucroy, also excel at the little things. Lucroy's safety squeeze keyed a five-run sixth inning and came right after Diamondbacks reliever Brad Ziegler became angry about a balk call.

He's human after all . . . sort of Nationals rookie phenom Stephen Strasburg, incredibly, lost a game Wednesday at home against the Royals. He allowed nine hits in six innings, but only one run in the 1-0 loss. Hardly a case of Superman exposed to kryptonite. Oh, and he struck out nine batters of the 18 outs he logged to set a major-league record for strikeouts (41) in his first four starts. "For the most part, I went out there and threw strikes," Strasburg told mlb.com of the outing.

Add Jimmy Rollins to the list of walking wounded for the Phillies. Rollins didn't start in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park because of a right foot injury. He did have a pinch-hit single in the ninth, but was lifted for pinch-runner Kyle Kendrick, who was then picked off second on a call that crew chief Tom Hallion admitted afterward was incorrect. As for Rollins, he didn't say much after the game, except that he hopes to play Sunday. Manager Charlie Manuel said that Rollins is day-to-day.

LOS ANGELES Dodgers owner Frank McCourt has announced an agreement to sell the bankrupt team for $2 billion to a group that includes former Lakers star Magic Johnson and former Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals president Stan Kasten. The agreement, announced Tuesday night about 5 hours after Major League Baseball owners approved three finalists for the auction, is to lead to a transfer of the team by the end of April. It is subject to approval in federal bankruptcy court.

NYJER MORGAN scored on a fly ball by Ryan Braun in the 10th inning to give the Brewers a 3-2 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night, the second late-inning thriller in a row for Milwaukee. With the bases loaded and one out, Braun lofted a shallow fly ball to centerfield. Morgan took off for home despite a stop sign from third-base coach Ed Sedar and was called safe on a close play at the plate - although replays showed that he may have been tagged out before reaching the plate.

CHRIS CAPUANO struck out nine while combining with two relievers on a four-hitter, James Loney drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the visiting Washington Nationals with a 2-0 victory on Sunday.

Jackson (8-9) have up four hits over eight innings. The victory moved the Nationals 5 1/2 games ahead of idle Atlanta.

This time, Cole Hamels couldn't use the excuse of not getting any early run support. Even the sizzling bat of Domonic Brown couldn't save the scuffling Phillies lefthander. Staked to a rare, 3-0, first-inning lead, Hamels continued his mystifying downward plunge during Friday's 8-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park. Brown drilled two home runs, giving him 15 for the season and 12 in the month of May. The Phillies record for homers in a month is 15 by Cy Williams in May 1923 and Jim Thome in June 2004.

MILWAUKEE - Aaron Harang was cruising, despite his teammates not providing any offense of their own through 4 1/2 innings of play. He'd surrendered only a first-inning triple by Jonathan Lucroy, which led to Milwaukee's only run to that point. And then it all unraveled. The Brewers sent 10 batters to the plate in the fifth inning. By the time Scooter Gennett - in his second at-bat of the inning - struck out to end the frame, Harang was no longer in the game, the Brewers had a six-run lead, and Sunday's game, which ended with a 6-1, series-sweeping Brewers victory, was long out of reach.

MILWAUKEE - The Phillies' lineup was missing its two best hitters on Sunday afternoon. It seemed to be without much of a pulse, too. The team's offense was lifeless in a 6-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. Chase Utley was given the day off as trade rumors continued to swirl. Maikel Franco missed his fourth straight game with a sore right wrist. Both players should return to the lineup Tuesday, unless Utley is traded. The Phillies struck out 11 times. Their lone run came on a ninth-inning homer by Andres Blanco.

The finale of a four-game series at Citizens Bank Park between baseball's two worst teams needed extra innings to decide. Three hours and 57 minutes after it began, the battle of ineptitude ended with the Phillies again coming out on the losing end. An 8-7 loss in 11 innings to the Milwaukee Brewers, the Phillies' fourth consecutive defeat and 28th in 36 games, cemented the team's worst record at the season's midway point since 1997. A mere 27 wins through 81 games puts the Phillies on pace for a 54-108 season, and their roster figures to get only worse after the July 31 trade deadline.

Ken Giles took the Citizens Bank Park mound late Tuesday with 12 scoreless June frames to his name. The Phillies' 24-year-old setup man retired the first two Milwaukee Brewers he faced. Then the inning unraveled. Giles' 38th pitch of a laborious eighth inning put Adam Lind on first base and walked in the Brewers' go-ahead run. The Phillies spoiled a great start by ace Cole Hamels and lost, 4-3, in a battle of baseball's two worst teams. "I think he knows what he did. He made a couple of bad pitches," interim manager Pete Mackanin said.

After the Phillies officially hired Andy MacPhail to become the team's president after the season, the new executive saw firsthand how much work needs to be done. Trailing by 4-1 through four innings, the Milwaukee Brewers came back to defeat the Phillies, 7-4, on Monday night in a battle of baseball's loss leaders before 18,423 at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies (27-51) have lost four of the last five since their three-game winning streak last week. MacPhail will serve as a special assistant to president Pat Gillick for three months before he takes over, and his main task will be to determine how many true keepers the Phillies have.

ON THE DAY the Phillies named a new president - with the bonus of the ownership group ending its unofficial vow of silence - the soon-to-retire team president announced that the general manager with the expiring contract would stay in place for the duration of the season. Got all of that? Andy MacPhail is aboard for the Phillies' rebuild; he'll officially take the reins from Pat Gillick in October. Ruben Amaro Jr.'s job status remains up in the air, but he's not going anywhere until season's end. And then there's the bespectacled stand-in manager, who sat inside the home dugout at Citizens Bank Park three hours before first pitch on his fourth day on the fill-in job, and on his first day with the regime change in the front office.

MILWAUKEE - There was thought, Ryne Sandberg said, to granting Roberto Hernandez a shot at his first complete game in almost a year. The sinkerballer limited Milwaukee to one run in eight innings Wednesday on 84 pitches. He attacked an aggressive lineup that has occupied first place for 92 straight days only to stumble this week. But the Phillies manager wanted his $50 million closer, Jonathan Papelbon, to record his 22d save. Papelbon sealed a 4-1 win over the Brewers with nine pitches for his third save in three nights.

EVEN MINUS Ryan Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers' lineup hardly skipped a beat. Jonathan Lucroy had four hits, Yovani Gallardo threw eight scoreless innings and visiting Milwaukee beat the Miami Marlins, 6-1, last night for its fourth consecutive victory. Carlos Gomez had three hits and two RBI for Milwaukee, while Lucroy also drove in a pair of runs. Rickie Weeks homered among his three hits for the Brewers, who tied a season high with 16 hits despite playing without Braun after he aggravated his sore right thumb Sunday against the Phillies.

This was a game of inches, but it was also a game of aches, pains, cramps, stomach viruses and, finally, exhaustion.Did we mention there was an instant-replay triple, too? What's funny is that the Phillies' 7-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday afternoon should have been a laugher. Thanks in large part to Domonic Brown's eighth home run in eight games, the Phillies had a five-run lead after the first inning. The white-hot Brown contributed an RBI triple in the second, which ended with the Phillies up, 7-0. And that's how it stayed until the top of the eighth inning because the equally hot Cliff Lee held the Brewers scoreless while striking out a season-high 11 hitters through the first seven.
