Veterans Lohse, Harang to square off in Philly

Two veteran right-handers who endured forgettable Junes will look to reset on July 1, as the Phillies' Aaron Harang and Brewers' Kyle Lohse will start Wednesday's third game of a four-game series in Philadelphia.

Over five June starts, Lohse allowed 19 earned runs in 29 1/3 innings for an ERA of 5.83. Harang's month was even rockier. The 37-year-old allowed 24 earned runs in 29 2/3 innings (a 7.28 June ERA), raising his 2015 ERA more than 1.50 points.

PHILADELPHIA -- For the Brewers Monday, the sixth inning was just a better version of the first five. After recording at least one hit in each of the first five innings, the Brewers kept swinging in the sixth, starting off the inning with six straight hits, scoring three runs and seizing the lead. Milwaukee never looked back from that point, defeating the Phillies, 7-4.

Ryan Braun had ranked among the top 15 outfielders in recent voting updates, but he fell off the leaderboard in the final balloting update released Monday afternoon by Major League Baseball. Last year, the Brewers had three All-Star Game starters in catcher Jonathan Lucroy, third baseman Aramis Ramirez and outfielder Carlos Gomez.

Gomez can't keep helmet on, gets chin strap

Carlos Gomez loves baseball. Well, we all love baseball, but Gomez loves it like very small children love their pets. You know -- the kids you have to tell to stop hugging Fluffy so tight because they might squash her.

Need an example? In the Brewers' series against the Twins last weekend, he swung so hard that he knocked his helmet off.
