MILWAUKEE, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Cole Hamels struck out 10 in 7 2/3 effective innings Saturday in the Philadelphia Phillies' 4-3 verdict over Milwaukee.

John Mayberry socked a two-run homer and the next batter -- Erik Kratz -- followed with solo shot in the second inning and Ryan Howard added an RBI double in the next frame for a 4-1 Phillies lead.

Milwaukee's Mike Fiers (6-6) gave up four runs on five hits over five full innings.

Ryan Braun went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and Aramis Ramirez added a solo shot for the Brewers.
