BASEBALL: Cloyd, Phillies topple Brewers

MILWAUKEE — The Phillies wanted John Lannan to pitch Thursday night in Clearwater, but that was rained out. They have Carlos Zambrano prepared to go for Double-A Reading tonight, but the forecast seems damp for that game, as well.

Tyler Cloyd, meanwhile, keeps making enough sunny starts to make you wonder how you go about demoting him.

For the fourth time in his five starts as Roy Halladay’s understudy in the rotation, Cloyd gave the Phillies a quality start, this time working his way through seven shutout innings and taking advantage of early runs from the offense in a 5-1 win over the Brewers at Miller Park.
