MILWAUKEE -- Tyler Cloyd did what he was supposed to do, and the Philadelphia Phillies got where they wanted to be for a long time. Wholesale White Sox Jerseys . Delmon Young homered, Cloyd allowed four hits over 6 2-3 scoreless innings, and the Phillies moved above .500 for the first time this season with a 5-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night. Coming off a three-game sweep of Miami that pulled the Phillies even for the first time since they were 6-6 on April 14, the season-high fifth consecutive win improved their record to 31-30. "Were happy that some hard work is starting to pay off," Michael Young said after batting leadoff for the first time in almost 10 years. "Were starting to see it in the standings. Were very happy with that style of play right now. We just want to make sure we keep doing that. Keep pushing the envelope." Cloyd had a big hand in helping the team get above .500. "He took us where we wanted to go in the game," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "When you allow two runs or less, you stand a real good chance of winning the game. Cloyd (2-2) limited Milwaukee to singles by Jean Segura, Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez through 6 2-3 innings. When Norichika Aoki singled with two out in the seventh, Manuel brought in Justin De Fratus who retired Segura on a grounder to second. Philadelphia scored in four of five innings against Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta (4-7). "Tonight, we got a good start right out of the gate," Manuel said. Cloyd walked and scored on Mayberrys double in the second. Domonic Brown scored in the third when Erik Kratz hit into a fielders choice. "We got some runners on," Manuel said. "We got some runs out of it." Delmon Young homered in the fifth for his fifth home run in his last 15 games after only having one through his first 17. Milwaukees run came in the eighth off Mike Adams when Braun walked, stole second, advanced on a groundout and scored on Jonathan Lucroys grounder to third. The game was a rematch of Cloyds and Peraltas previous start. Cloyd lost 4-3 to Peralta on June 1 in Philadelphia, but didnt let that happen again. No Brewer got past second base despite his four walks. In the loss to Peralta five days ago, Cloyd went seven innings, allowing three runs, two earned, eight hits with a walk and three strikeouts. Peralta pitched seven innings, allowed two runs on eight hits. He walked one and struck out six, matching his season-high and picked up a rare victory. This time, Peralta threw 30 of his 99 pitches in a shaky first inning as the Phillies went ahead 2-0. Michael Young opened the game with a single. John Mayberry followed with a single and Jimmy Rollins did the same to load the bases and put Peralta in trouble right away. "I led off for about two years," Young said. "Probably right around the All-Star Break of 04, thats all she wrote." Ryan Howards sacrifice fly brought in Young. Peralta walked the next batter to load the bases again. With Delmon Young at bat, he bounced a pitch in the dirt that rolled away from catcher Lucroy allowing John Mayberry to score on the wild pitch. Peralta regrouped and struck out Young and retired Kratz on a comebacker to the mound. That performance wasnt what Brewers manager Ron Roenicke expected from Peralta. "He just didnt throw the ball where he wanted to," Roenicke said. "A couple ground balls the first two guys and then his command left him. He didnt have his slider today. The hard one he kept trying to throw and he couldnt command it, so he went to a softer slider." Peralta gave up five runs on eight hits in five innings, walked four and struck out two, losing for the fifth time in his last six starts. The fourth inning was the only one he kept the Phillies off the board. NOTES: Brewers LHP Tom Gorzelanny will make a spot start Sunday against Philadelphia.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Devon Halls offense is coming around after a slow start to the season, and on a Virginia team that lacks a go-to scorer, its an important development as the 13th-ranked Cavaliers head into the more challenging part of their schedule.Hall matched his career high with 13 points and the Cavaliers returned from a 10-day layoff for final exams with a 79-39 victory over Robert Morris on Saturday.Devons always an intense player and hes physical so Im glad to see him have a little success, either a drive and a finish or making a 3 or getting to the foul line, Virginia coach Tony Bennett said of the 6-foot-5 redshirt junior. His intensity and his physicality were key tonight.Hall came into the game ninth on the team with a 5.0 scoring average, and became the seventh Cavalier to at least share top scoring honors in a game.We do not have a guy you can say, `Hes going to get you 20 tonight, or even 15 or 18, Bennett said, so the balance is critical.Freshman Kyle Guy also scored 13 points and Jack Salt had a career-best 10 for the Cavaliers (9-1), who overcame a sluggish start and broke the game open with a 38-8 run spanning halftime. It turned a 13-12 deficit into a 50-21 lead early in the second half.Isaiah Still led Robert Morris (3-9) with 16 points and Dachon Burke had seven. The Colonials shot just 23.9 percent (11 of 46) and became the fourth team held to fewer than 40 points by the Cavaliers, who lead the nation in scoring defense (47.6).They wear you down, Colonials coach Andrew Toole said. Once they kind of get that lead, youre in a world of trouble.Jarred Reuter also scored 10 points for Virginia, which outscored the Colonials 48-8 in the paint and 41-14 off the bench.BIG PICTURERobert Morris: The Colonials appear to be in a youth movement with sophomore scoring leader Still (15 ppg) and freshmen Braden Burke and Dachon Burke all ggetting significant minutes. Cheap White Sox Jerseys Authentic. They won the Northeast Conference two years ago under Toole and have been to postseason play four times in the past five seasons, but seem more likely to suffer through growing pains with their future stars gaining experience than to make much noise this season.Virginia: The Cavaliers were wise to schedule a lesser opponent for their first game in 11 days after a break for finals because they came out looking sluggish and sloppy before finally getting it together and closing the half on a 20-5 run. They will need to be sharper at California on Wednesday night.HOMECOMINGSVirginias game at California is the best Bennett could do in giving London Perrantes, from Los Angeles, a game before his home fans, but the senior point guard wont be the only Cavalier with lots of family in attendance.Salt, who is from New Zealand, said eight family members are making the 13-hour flight to see him play.SHOOTING BLANKSStill was 5 for 10 from the field for Robert Morris. The rest of the team was 6 for 36.PASSING FANCYVirginia forward Isaiah Wilkins and reserve point guard Ty Jerome shared the team lead with six assists each. Jeromes came in just 16 minutes of playing time as Bennett substituted liberally and gave his younger players extended floor time before the schedule toughens.Wilkins finished with seven points, six rebounds, six assists, a block and a steal in 21 minutes.UP NEXTRobert Morris is at home next Wednesday against Buffalo in its final game before beginning Northeast Conference play.Virginia heads west to face California in its last non-conference game before ACC play begins.---More AP college basketball: Hank on Twitter: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
