Bats flounder and Eickhoff struggles as Brewers beat Phillies

Eickhoff struggles as Phillies fall
The Phillies didn't have an answer for Brandon Woodruff on Tuesday, collecting just one hit over six innings in a 6-1 defeat to Milwaukee at Citizens Bank Park.

Along with the offensive woes on the night, Jerad Eickhoff surrendered five runs and eight hits over four innings for the Phillies. Yasmani Grandal and Ryan Braun each homered for the Brewers.

Bryce Harper made a pair of exciting catches in the sixth, just barely avoiding serious injury after the first sliding catch led to his knee bending awkwardly as it slid into the wall in right field. He remained in the game and is in Wednesday's starting lineup.

Jean Segura collected the Phillies lone RBI on the day with an RBI single.

The two clubs continue their four-game set on Wednesday with Jake Arrieta facing Gio Gonzalez.

Rehab Update
Scott Kingery was 1-for-3 in his first rehab assignment at Class-A Lakewood. He's working his way back from a right hamstring strain that sidelined him on April 20.

Wednesday's Lineup
McCutchen 8
Segura 6
Harper 9

Realmuto 2
