The Philadelphia Phillies ended their longest winning streak since a 13
game streak in 1991. Glavine pitched seven strong innings and drove in a
pair of runs to help the New York Mets beat Philadelphia 13-4 Wednesday
night, snapping the Phillies nine-game winning streak.

It had been quite a turnaround for the Phillies, who opened 1-6 and
finished 10-14 in April. The winning streak began on April 30 with a 5-1
victory in Pittsburgh that avoided a three-game sweep against the woeful
Pirates.

"We just have to throw this one out the window and bounce back tomorrow,"
Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said.

In other news Cole Hamels is no longer only in Philadelphia's future
plans. The Phillies will call up the 22-year-old Hamels, their first-
round pick in 2002, to make his major league debut Friday against the
Cincinnati Reds and the Phillies hope this new prospect will help them to
get a place in the playoffs.

Milwaukee didn’t have a good time against the Padres last week. Losing on
Wednesday night 3-0 in a game that was completely dominated by Chan Ho
Park who didn’t allowed any runs in the 6 innings he pitched.

Park credited outfielders Mike Cameron and Brian Giles for making great
catches. "And also, I had a good catcher back there calling the right
pitches, so that helps and makes me more comfortable and confident," Park
said.
The Brewers that have a 17-17 record were playing really good baseball up
until they faced the Padres, which outplay them in two of the three games
of the series. The Brewers had a phenomenal season start but lately
they’re in a hole and might get down the .500 average.

Milwaukee will face this week against Philadelphia in a series that will
be very exciting, since both teams need to win. Expect nothing but great
baseball games between these two in this series. If you like sports’
betting this is a great opportunity to give more emotion to the All-
American sport by making some bets on the series.
