PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- -

Adam Lind hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the 11th inning to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-7 on Thursday night to complete a four-game sweep.

The Brewers blew leads of 4-0, 5-2 and 7-4 but still won their fifth straight game in a matchup of teams with the two worst records in the majors.

Jonathan Lucroy opened the 11th with a double off Luis Garcia (2-3) and advanced to third on Ryan Braun's groundout. Lind then singled up the middle to break the tie.

Michael Blazek (5-2) tossed two scoreless innings for the win. Francisco Rodriguez finished for his 18th save in 18 tries.

Cody Asche hit a two-run homer and was one of four Phillies with three hits. Odubel Herrera, Cesar Hernandez and Freddy Galvis all had three hits each.

Both teams had 16 hits.
