Suppan gets shelled as the Brewers lose to Philly
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to Philadelphia 9-4 at Miller Park Thursday.

The Phillies scored six runs in the fifth inning, including a three-run homer by Jimmy Rollins.

Jeff Suppan took the loss, giving up eight runs on 12 hits - both season-highs - in four and a third innings.

Suppan is now 7-11 overall, and only 3-8 at home.

Phils' rookie J.A. Happ improved his record to 11-4.

He struck out seven in five and two-thirds innings, giving up two runs on six hits. Happ also hit a run-scoring single, as he improved his road record to 7-2.

Pedro Feliz went 3-5 and ex-Brewer Paul Bako drove in a run, as the Phillies reduced their magic number to four to clinch the National League East.

Casey McGehee went 2-5 with a pair of RBIs for the Brewers, who've lost three of their last four.

The Brewers are now three games below .500, and they'd have to go 7-2 the rest of the way to avoid a losing season.

The Brewers and Phillies will play again tonight.

Left-hander Manny Parra will make his first start in two and one-half weeks against Phillies' left-hander Cliff Lee.
