June 8, 2013 Updated Jun 8, 2013 at 11:22 PM CST

Milwaukee, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Carlos Gomez robbed the Phillies of a home run and added an RBI as the Brewers hung on to beat Philadelphia 4-3 on Saturday to win their second straight game.

The Phillies right-fielder John Mayberry Jr. hit what look like to be a home run in the top of the second until Gomez nabbed it out of the air.

Jean Segura homered in the third, while Jonathan Lucroy and Ryan Braun each added an RBI for the Brewers.

Milwaukee's top prospect Tyler Thornburg pitched two scoreless innings of relief to pick-up his first major-league win.

The Phillies (31-32) and Brewers (24-37) meet again on Sunday at 1:10 p.m. to finish up the four-game series.
