Magic number at 3
Photos
Phillies 6, Brewers 5
Joe Blanton, who threw 124 pitches, struck out four and issued four walks. (Morry Gash/AP)
Joe Blanton wasn't at his sharpest, but he gutted out 5 2/3 innings of five-run ball, and received enough support from the offense and bullpen to help the Phillies trim their magic number to three. Jimmy Rollins hit a leadoff homer, while Pedro Feliz and Shane Victorino each knocked in a pair.
