PHILADELPHIA, July 25 (UPI) -- Jimmy Rollins' RBI single in the 10th inning Wednesday capped a rally that carried the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-6 win and a three-game sweep of Milwaukee.

The Brewers had grabbed the lead in the top of the 10th when Carlos Gomez scored from third on a sacrifice fly by Aramis Ramirez that was caught over-the-shoulder by second baseman Chase Utley.

But for the third straight game, the Phillies staged a late rally to pull out a victory, claiming their first home-series sweep of the season.

John Mayberry drew a one-out walk from Francisco Rodriguez (2-6) and went to third on a double into the left-field corner by Erik Kratz, who left for pinch-runner Mike Fontenot.

Mayberry then scored the tying run on a Carlos Ruiz sacrifice fly. Fontenot went to third on the play, then slid home with the game-winning run on a solid liner to right-center field off the bat of Rollins.

Michael Schwimer (2-1) earned the victory after tossing a scoreless top of the 10th.

Milwaukee's Ryan Braun forced extra innings with a game-tying, two-run shot in the eighth off Anthony Bastardo -- his National League-best 28th of the season.
