Despite being no-hit by Matt Garza through six innings, the Phillies broke out for seven runs in the eighth on their way to a 9-1 victory and their first four-game sweep since Aug. 29-Sept. 1, 2011, over the Reds.
Even with Buchanan allowing just one run and four hits in seven innings of work, the Phillies offense found themselves unable to do damage, being no-hit through six innings.
In the eighth inning, the Phillies would strike, however, as Jimmy Rollins singled home two runs to give the Phillies lead. The Phillies would pile on five more in the inning, extending their lead to 7-1 and making Garza’s no-hit bid seem like the distant past.
Ryan Howard would hit a two-run home run in the ninth to extend the Phillies’ lead to 9-1, as they completed their improbable road sweep of Milwaukee.
