MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Down six, the Philadelphia Phillies kept the faith.

Some luck didn't hurt either.

Wes Helms hit a two-out, two-run double in the 11th inning, and the Phillies came back to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-6 yesterday.

The Phillies needed five runs in the ninth.

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel says they were very lucky.

The loss didn't hurt Milwaukee's lead in the N.L. Central.

The Brewers are still up a game after the Cubs lost to the Mets.
