MILWAUKEE (AP) — Eduardo Escobar hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the sixth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers topped the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3.

Milwaukee extended its lead to 12 games in the NL Central over Cincinnati, which lost 4-1 to the Chicago Cubs.

Philadelphia remained 2½ games behind NL East-leading Atlanta. Escobar drove an 0-1 pitch from Connor Brogdon deep to right for his 25th homer.

The infielder was acquired in a July trade with Arizona.
