PHILADELPHIA -- The Milwaukee Brewers are feeling right at home on the road and gaining more confidence with each win. Ryan Braun hit a two-run triple during a three-run eighth inning rally to lead the Brewers to their fifth straight win, 9-4 over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday. Carlos Gomez and Mark Reynolds homered and Jean Segura doubled and drove in a run for Milwaukee, which has won all five games during the streak on the road beginning with a sweep of the Red Sox at Fenway. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said winning on the road can be a huge boost for a club. "When you win on the road, and not just winning but against the teams that were playing, then it becomes really important," Roenicke said. The Brewers snapped a 4-all tie in the eighth when they scored three runs on one hit off Antonio Bastardo (0-1). Reynolds scored the go-ahead run on an error by first baseman Ryan Howard, who let Logan Schafers grounder go into right field. Braun, who hit three homers Tuesday, broke the game open with a two-run triple to the wall in left-centre that made it 7-4. Tyler Thornburg (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the victory. Braun, who served a 65-game suspension for violations of major league baseballs drug agreement and labour contract, was booed during each of his four putouts and every at-bat - none louder than when he reached third in the eighth. Reynolds hit a two-run homer in the ninth. "Were just getting hit after hit and its fun to be a part of," Reynolds said. "Offences go through this, they just click. Guys get big hits. You go through these streaks where its fun to be a part of and tough to get us out. Were just going to ride this streak out as long as we can." Philadelphia starter Roberto Hernandez allowed four runs - three earned - on seven hits in five innings while coming within one strikeout of matching his career high with nine. "Hernandez threw the ball well," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "He was mixing his pitches and did a nice job." Brewers starter Matt Garza gave up four runs - three earned - on eight hits in six innings with four strikeouts and two walks. "I couldnt really find a groove," Garza said. "I fought myself for six and am happy to keep my team in there. All that matters is the W. We stack as many as we can and see what happens at the end of September. Thats what you play for." The teams combined for five runs on four hits and two errors in a shaky first inning where both teams looked in early season form. Milwaukee scored a pair of the runs in the top half, bolstered by four-time Gold Glove winner Jimmy Rollins rare error at shortstop. It was a continuation of a problem for Philadelphia, which upped its total to nine errors in eight games. Sandberg, in his first full season as a manager after taking over for fired Charlie Manuel last Aug. 16, has stressed getting back to fundamental baseball. "We definitely have to straighten things up," Sandberg said. "Were working on it." Philadelphia took the lead with three runs in the bottom half that included a Garza balk and second baseman Scooter Gennetts throwing error. Seguras second-inning RBI double tied it at 3 and the Brewers went ahead 4-3 on Gomezs solo homer to left in the fourth. As is his custom, Gomez eschewed the traditional home-run trot for an all-out sprint around the bases. Marlon Byrds single to centre in the fifth tied it at 4. Ben Revere, criticized in Philadelphia on Wednesday for making an error and misplaying another ball in Tuesdays 10-4 home-opening loss, made a spectacular, diving catch to rob Gennett of a hit in the second inning. Roenicke successfully challenged a first-inning out call by second base umpire Adrian Johnson, who incorrectly ruled that Revere beat Garzas throw to second. Replays, though, showed that Segura tagged Reveres leg before he reached the bag. The replay caused a delay of 1:29. Notes: Phillies 3B Cody Asche didnt start due to a minor hamstring injury but entered in the ninth and doubled off the wall in right-centre. . Five-time All-Star Chase Utley didnt start for the second straight game due to the flu. Utley was available to pinch-hit. ... Braun has 23 RBIs in 21 games lifetime at Citizens Bank Park. .

The 26-year-old Sobotka injured his left leg playing for the St. Louis Blues in a 3-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday. The Blues said he would not recover from the injury in time for the Olympic tournament.Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - With a four-point lead in the standings, the Toronto Argonauts try to put even more distance between themselves and the other clubs in the Eastern Division as they cross over and take on the Edmonton Eskimos tonight in Toronto. You can see all the action on TSN and TSN Mobile TV beginning at 7pm et/4pm pt. Since losing back-to-back games against British Columbia and Saskatchewan in the second and third weeks of the season, respectively, Toronto has come on strong by scoring no less than 35 points in each of the last three outings. In fact, the Argos have taken care of the action on both sides of the ball during this three-game win streak, outscoring the competition by a combined 111-44 margin. The Argos have not experienced this level of success over a three-game span in the regular season since posting a trio of victories in succession back in 2007. Last week the Argonauts took advantage of a weakened Montreal squad, on the road no less, streaking out to a 31-0 lead before settling in for a 38-13 triumph. With the victory the team gave itself a slight cushion in the standings, now four points ahead of both the Alouettes and Hamilton Tiger- Cats. Returning to action after missing time due to a knee injury, quarterback Ricky Ray connected with John Chiles on a pair of touchdown passes in the first quarter, but it wasnt until late in the period that the game really got exciting, as Chad Owens returned a missed field goal 118 yards for a score to give the Argos a 21-0 edge after 15 minutes of action. Ray finished the meeting 15-of-18 passing for 152 yards and three touchdowns, while backup Zach Collaros was also given time under center for the visitors, resulting in another 44 yards through the air and 31 on the ground. Owens, perhaps the most exciting player in the league for the last several years, was named the CFL Special Teams Player of the Week as he finished with 247 all-purpose yards in the triumph. Also earning league recognition was defensive back Alonzo Lawrence, who claimed CFL Defensive Player of the Week honors after forcing a fumble and recovering two more in the onslaught. While the Argos pretty much had their meeting with Montreal in the bag after just one quarter of action, the Eskimos found themselves fighting right up until the final gun as they bowed to visiting Hamilton by a score of 30-29. Edmonton had a chance to snap what had been a three-game slide, but Grant Shaws last-second field goal atttempt missed the mark, extending the squads run of defeats to four in a row.dddddddddddd All alone in last place in the Western Division, having won only once in six opportunities, Edmonton controlled the ball for just over 25 minutes and was unable to capitalize on a staggering 12 penalties for 138 yards assessed against the Ticats. Mike Reilly hit on 21-of-32 passing as the starting quarterback, resulting in 311 yards and a score, but that didnt stop Edmonton from also fielding Kerry Joseph and Jonathan Crompton at the position during the outing. Running back Hugh Charles scored once on the ground for Edmonton, but gained a total of just 40 yards on nine attempts, while wideout Cary Koch was tops among receivers with eight catches for 112 yards. Despite Reilly trying to carve out some space for himself on the Edmonton offense, the unit continues to have issues. Through six games, the Eskimos are last in the league in scoring with just 21.3 ppg, with much of that being the result of placing last in the CFL in both plays from scrimmage (435) and average time of possession (27:15). On the defensive side of the ball Edmonton is in the middle of the pack with 28.2 ppg allowed. However, linebacker Damaso Munoz is currently second in the league in tackles with 41. The Eskimos need Munoz and his teammates to apply as much pressure as they can at the line of scrimmage because trying to slow down Ray, a former Edmonton player himself, is not easy. Ray has completed a staggering 76.4 percent of his passes for 1,355 yards and 11 touchdowns, all without being picked off yet in 2013. In addition to Rays near perfection, the Argos also enjoy the exploits of Owens, who is first in the league in receiving with 43 catches for 470 yards and also tops in combined yards (1,154), as he aims to record yet another 3,000 yard campaign. Since 2004 the teams have earned an even split of their 18 matchups, although Edmonton has had the upper hand in recent years with five straight victories, the latest triumph coming in August of last season when the Esks delivered a 26-17 win on the road. The last win for Toronto was three seasons ago on August 10 when the squad slipped by in a 29-28 final. With their run of success of late, Edmonton now leads the all-time series, dating back to 1961 and taking into consideration only regular-season matchups, by a 45-38-1 mark. The teams are also set to face each other in late September when the Argos visit Edmonton.
