The Milwaukee Brewers placed second baseman Jonathan Villar (right thumb) on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday and called up outfielder Brett Phillips from Triple-A Colorado Springs ahead of their series finale against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the team announced.
Wilkerson, 29, pitched the eighth inning of the nightcap, giving up three runs on three hits.
Villar, 27, is batting .261 with 26 runs and 14 stolen bases this season. Villar was used as a pinch-hitter in the first game Saturday and started the second game, drawing a pair of walks.
The Brewers have dropped five straight, including the last four against the Pirates, ahead of Sunday's finale.
Also on Sunday, the Pirates sent right-hander Clay Holmes down to Triple-A Indianapolis after he served as the 26th man Saturday. The team made another move, recalling righty Tanner Anderson from Triple-A and sending slumping outfielder Austin Meadows down.
