The game was scoreless until the bottom of the sixth inning when Jeff Francoeur homered off Red Sox starter Rick Porcello (pictured) with two on to give the Phillies a 3-0 lead. Philadelphia added a run with a sacrifice fly by Chase Utley in the bottom of the seventh.
Boston scratched back for a pair of runs in the top of the eighth inning on an RBI single by Xander Bogaerts and a bases loaded walk to Pablo Sandoval.
Porcello went six innings in the loss. He was charged with three runs on six hits. He walked two and struck out four.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
