The Milwaukee Brewers polished off a weekend sweep of the reigning World Series champion Boston Red Sox at Fenway park with a 4-0 victory on Sunday. Milwaukee won Friday night 6-2 with a four run ninth inning, overcame shaky defense with 19 hits in a 7-6, 11 inning victory Saturday and continued their dominant starting pitching in the series finale. It was the first sweep in Boston since the Brewers belonged to the American League in 1993. Yovani Gallardo improved to 2-0 by working six and two thirds innings, scattering 7 hits. Zach Duke and Tyler Thornberg completed the shutout from the bullpen. Milwaukee got RBI's from Aramis Ramirez, Mark Reynolds and Jeff Bianchi. Ryan Braun, who sat out Saturday's game with a sore thumb, went 2 for 4. The Brewers team earned run average is an impressive 1.45 through the first six games. Milwaukee (4-2) stays on the road to begin a series with the Philadelphia Phillies. Monday's game was postponed because of threatening weather, the series will now open on Tuesday afternoon with Kyle Lohse on the mound.
