MILWAUKEE - Delmon Young homered, Tyler Cloyd allowed four hits over 6 2-3 scoreless innings, and the Philadelphia Phillies moved above .500 for the first time this season with a 5-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night.
Coming off a three-game sweep of Miami that pulled the Phillies even for the first time since they were 6-6 on April 14, the season-high fifth consecutive win improved their record to 31-30.
Cloyd (2-2) limited Milwaukee to singles by Jean Segura, Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez through 6 2-3 innings. When Norichika Aoki singled with two out in the seventh, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel brought in Justin De Fratus who retired Segura on a grounder to second.
Philadelphia scored in four of the first five innings against Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta (4-7).

MANITOWISH WATERS - After Terry Theisen got her middle school math class started with some computer coding, she needed to admit something about her level of programming expertise.
"None, absolutely none," Theisen said with a smile.
The North Lakeland School teacher did some basic coding when she was young, telling her students she used actual punch cards. Friday, was very different. Theisen's entire class learned on the go as they clicked and clacked on laptops as part of a worldwide event from their Manitowish Waters school.
