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).
