For those wondering why Cesar Hernandez isnât in the lineup tonight, he wonât be arriving until gametime. Also, the Phillies basically said he wouldnât have been in the lineup anyway, so thereâs that.
Tough report on Adam Morgan. He has been shut down with a shoulder ailment, he had tests done last night on it, so weâll find out more soon. But never good news when it has to do with a top prospect and his shoulder.
Also, Carlos Ruiz caught a few bullpen session, is still feeling a little pain in the hammy. Heâs still a few days away from testing the leg by running.
Lineup: Revere CF, Frandsen 2B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, D. Young RF, Brown LF, Galvis 3B, Kratz C, Kendrick P

BEST OF MAXIM
John Lackey wasnât at his best Wednesday night but he has pitched effectively for the Red Sox this season. Lackey, signed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract prior to the 2010 season, had a rocky start to his Boston tenure. After posting solid peripherals with poor run prevention marks in 2010, he posted a 6.41 ERA in 2011 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He missed the...
John Lackey has been solid and sometimes spectacular this season. His start Wednesday fell into the former category.
Despite giving up three home runs to the Phillies, Lackey limited the rest of the damage and still gave the Red Sox a chance to win the game. Isnât that all a starting pitcher really needs to do, on some level?

It doesnât matter if youâre the home or away team, trying to throw strike when a real life JUGS machine is staring you right in the face has got to be difficult. Â John Lackey and Kyle Kendrick did their best and were way more focused than I wouldâve been.

Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia is notorious for allowing heaps of home runs, and it lived up to its billing Wednesday night.
The Red Sox and Phillies combined for five homers in the contest, with three coming against Boston starter John Lackey. The trifecta of long balls represented the only runs scored against the right-hander, who took the loss after the Sox were unable to...
The Phillies hit four solo home runs, including two off the bat of Domonic Brown, in support of Kyle Kendrick Wednesday night as the Phillies defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-2. Kendrick (5-3) came into the game looking to rebound following two poor starts where he allowed nine runs in...
Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday that John Lackey is probably the teamâs best-hitting pitcher. Lackey will get a chance to defend that title on Wednesday, when the Sox travel to Philadelphia for their first game under National League rules.
The right-hander hasnât had a chance to swing the lumber since 2011, but his hitting resume since joining the Red Sox is impressive...
1 p.m. ET: The Red Sox split a pair with the Phillies in Boston, and now both teams are packing the bags and heading to Philadelphia to finish the series off.

Domonic Brown has always been a highly touted prospect in the Philadelphia system. Against the Red Sox, heâs showing why.
Brown homered twice to lead a four-home-run Phillie attack against John Lackey and the Sox, and a late rally in the ninth against old friend Jonathan Papelbon wasnât enough for Boston. Despite some late heroics, the power display from Philadelphia won the...
It was the same exact ending, against the same exact team, in a different city. The Red Sox tried to mount a comeback against Jonathan Papelbon but it fell short in the end for the second straight day. The Phillies were lead by power hitting that downed the Red Sox.
