Lucroy leads Brewers past Hamels and Phillies, 8-5

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy went 5 for 5 with two home runs and four RBIs as the Milwaukee Brewers battered a struggling Cole Hamels to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-5 on Friday night, snapping their longest losing streak of the season at six games.

Yovani Gallardo (4-5) overcame a shaky first inning to stop a four-game skid, the worst of his career. Yuniesky Betancourt added three hits and an RBI for the Brewers, who avoided setting a dubious record for the worst month in franchise history.

Milwaukee finished May with a .214 winning percentage (6-22) to tie the Seattle Pilots, who went 6-22 in August 1969 during their lone season before becoming the Milwaukee Brewers in 1970.
