After Pablo Sandoval walked leading off the fourth, Crawford homered into the second deck in right for his eighth of the season. He singled in the first and doubled in the sixth off Scherzer and added a double off Matt Grace in the eighth.
I threw good pitches to him. He put great swings on them. He wins, I lose, Scherzer said. That’s as simple as that. He’s hot. I have to be better than him. Today, he was great.

Our guys put it together, especially today, and swung the bats really well, Estrada said. We’ve just got to keep doing what we’ve been doing as of late.
Estrada (3-6) allowed two runs and four hits, leaving after Jonathan Schoop homered to begin the seventh. The right-hander won for the first time since April 20 Rodney Gunter Youth Jersey at Yankee Stadium.

It was huge. We needed a (W) today, said J.P. Crawford, who had two of the Phillies’ four hits.
Ryan Braun saved a run with a diving catch, doubled to spark a two-run fifth, and had an RBI single in the eighth for the Brewers, who had won two straight.
Eflin (3-2) had his second strong start after two subpar outings, allowing two runs and three hits with one walk.
We played a good game today, Eflin said. I think that’s the biggest thing, being able to stop a team that’s picking on you a little bit.
