Cole Hamels allowed six hits, struck out four and issued three walks. (Tom Mihalek/AP)
With Jimmy Rollins (3-for-5, two-run homer, three runs) serving as the catalyst and Cole Hamels (6 1/3 innings, two runs) cruising, the Phils cut the Brewers' Wild Card lead to two. In the NL East, the Phils are 2 1/2 games back of the Mets, who split a twin bill.
