- As bad as the three runs allowed in the sixth inning were, strong defensive plays by the Phillies' infield prevented the Brewers from scoring even more runs. With the bases loaded, no one out and the hot-swinging Adam Lind at the plate, relief pitcher Justin De Fratus forced a soft chopper to shortstop Freddy Galvis. Galvis charged on the ball and threw home, getting the out, though the bases remained loaded. De Fratus forced another ground ball in the next at-bat though, this one to Cesar Hernandez who was able to flip to Galvis to start off an inning-ending 4-6-3 double play.
- In the bottom of the third inning, Mackanin challenged Carlson's ruling that Domonic Brown was out at home, as he believed Lucroy was blocking the plate. After a one-minute, 15-second review, the ruling on the field was confirmed and Brown, who tried to score from first on a Cody Asche double, was out. The Phillies did not come away with a run in the inning.
- "I'll tell you right now when you haven't been over there for a while, that job is a lot harder than most people think it is. It looks a lot easier from up above than it does when you're on the field level." -- Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin on how new third-base coach John Mizerock has done since taking over for Mackanin on Friday. Domonic Brown has been thrown out between third and home twice in the four games since the change.
- Tuesday's game will be the last game of June for both teams. Though it wasn't a month to remember, the Phillies are more likely to want to forget it. With a win Tuesday, the Brewers would break .500 in the month.
- Outside of the matchup between Hamels and Braun, another interesting matchup will be the one between Hamels and Adam Lind. Lind is on a nine-game hitting streak and is 3-for-8 with a home run lifetime versus Hamels.
- Taylor Jungmann will start for the Brewers. He is 2-1 with a 2.74 ERA in four starts for the Brewers in June, his first four starts as a big league. Jungmann has primarily relied on the hard stuff in those starts, with 75 percent of his pitches having been fastballs or sinkers, both of which average 92 mph.
One of the hottest batters in the National League will face off against one of the hottest potential trade commodities in baseball Tuesday when Ryan Braun and the Brewers visit Cole Hamels and the Phillies for the second game of a four-game series. Though Braun, who is fifth in the NL in RBIs since the end of April, has cooled off in June compared with his torrid May, the outfielder has four multi-hit games in his past eight, including a 3-for-5 night in Monday's series-opening 7-4 win over the Phillies. Hamels has faced Braun more times than any pitcher who has never pitched in the NL Central. Braun is 10-for-34 lifetime versus the left-hander with three home runs and five RBIs. Coming off his least effective start since early May, Hamels will attempt to regain the form he maintained in his six starts between May 8 and June 3, where he lasted seven or more innings and allowed two or fewer runs each time.
