MILWAUKEE -- Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Gomez each drove in runs in the sixth inning with back-to-back hits, leading the Brewers to a 4-3 victory over the Phillies Saturday evening at Miller Park.

Tied 1-1 against Philadelphia right-hander Kyle Kendrick, Ryan Braun opened the inning with a single to short. Aramis Ramirez followed with a grounder up the middle that put Braun at third before Lucroy made it 2-1 Milwaukee with a double off the wall in left.

Gomez was next and he singled down the line in left to score Ramirez, giving the Brewers a 3-1 lead. Gomez moved to second on Rickie Weeks' groundout to first for the innings' first out.

Kendrick (6-4) worked out of it, striking out Juan Francisco and getting pinch-hitter Yuniesky Betancourt to fly out to center, ending the inning. After allowing three runs on eight hits and a walk with six strikeouts through six innings, Kendrick gave way to a pinch hitter in the Philadelphia seventh.

The Phillies drew within a run in the eighth on a two-out, two-run double by Dominic Brown but Brandon Kintzler retired pinch hitter Ryan Howard and Francisco Rodriguez worked a perfect ninth to record his fourth save of the season.

Dominic Brown put the Phillies on the board in the second with a solo home run to left, increasing his league-leading total to 18 this season.

Milwaukee tied the game in the third on Jean Segura's ninth homer of the season.

Brewers left-hander Tom Gorzelanny went four innings allowing a run on five hits with three strikeouts in his first start of the season, filling in for the injured Marco Estrada.

Tyler Thornburg (1-0) earned his first major league victory, working two scoreless innings in relief of Gorzelanny.
