Dustin Pedroia's single in the bottom of the eleventh inning drove in Deven Marrero as the Red Sox rallied from an early 4-0 deficit to defeat the Phillies 6-5 at Fenway Park on Monday night.

Matt Barnes (5-2) was the winner in relief with two shutout innings.
Boston starting pitcher Rick Porcello struggled in the first inning, allowing four runs on five hits.
Andrew Benintendi's ninth home run of the year in the bottom of the second got the Red Sox on the scoreboard. Boston scored twice in the third on an RBI ground out by Pedroia and a run-scoring single by Benintendi who had three hits.
Mookie Betts doubled home a run in the fourth, one of his team-leading four hits on the night.
After Philadelphia took a 5-4 lead in the fifth, Hanley Ramirez tied the game in the bottom of the eighth with a solo home run, his ninth of the season.
The walk-off hit by Pedroia was only the second of his career, with the first one back in June 2010.

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).
