Against Madson, Brewers tapped out

The Phillies yesterday desperately needed Ryan Madson to pitch the way he pitched Tuesday in New York.

They did not necessarily expect him to throw another seven scoreless innings, as he did in that 16-inning loss to the Mets. But they needed him to provide them an honest chance to beat the Milwaukee Brewers.

"It's good to win a game," an upbeat Charlie Manuel said after a 6-2 victory over the Brewers at Citizens Bank Park, which prevented the Brewers from sweeping the Phillies at home and sweeping the season series.

Manuel could thank Madson for some of that. The righthander, who returned to the rotation because of an injury to lefthander Cole Hamels, pitched just five innings. But he kept the game close, allowing seven hits, two runs and one walk. He also struck out a career-high seven.

Madson also kick-started a lifeless offense in the fourth inning when he crushed a two-out double over the head of Brewers centerfielder Brady Clark to score two runs, making it 2-2.

"It's just one of those things where you feel like you're going to do it," Madson said. "That's just confidence. When you go out there with confidence, you're going to do well."
