— Shane Victorino homered and drove in four runs, and the Philadelphia Phillies' bullpen held on in a 10-6 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.

Staked to a 9-2 lead after Victorino's two-run homer in the sixth inning and Philadelphia's five runs off reliever Claudio Vargas in the seventh, Joe Blanton (1-2) and the Phillies' bullpen made it interesting.


Corey Hart's three-run shot in the seventh cut it to 9-5. Milwaukee pushed another run across in the ninth and loaded the bases, but 38-year-old Jose Contreras earned his first career save by striking out the final two batters.


The scuffling Brewers also got homers from Prince Fielder and Alcides Escobar, but have been hospitable hosts to everyone, falling to 4-13 at Miller Park.
