MILWAUKEE (AP) - J.J. Hardy and the Milwaukee Brewers did just enough to keep their postseason alive for another day. Back home at Miller Park, the Brewers got three hits from Hardy and a sharp outing from Dave Bush to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 Saturday night and stave off elimination in the NL division series.

Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun each had a sacrifice fly for Milwaukee, making its first trip to the postseason since 1982. Hardy and Jason Kendall added RBI singles.

After CC Sabathia and Yovani Gallardo flopped in Philly, Bush allowed one run in 5 1-3 innings to help send the best-of-five series to a fourth game on Sunday.

Salomon Torres held on for the save despite a rocky ninth.
