The Phillies won in Milwaukee Thursday night to go above the .500 mark for the first time all season.
The 5-1 win over the Brewers was the Phillies’ fifth consecutive victory, giving the team a season-high winning streak at the start of its 10-game road trip.

John Mayberry Jr., the hero of Tuesday’s come-from-behind, extra-innings win over Miami, was 3 for 5 with an RBI and run scored.
Delmon Young wrapped up the Phillies’ scoring on the night with a solo home run in the fifth inning. It was Young’s sixth home run of the year and his fifth in his last 15 games.
Cloyd pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing just four hits while walking five and striking out two.
