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. Here are the 3 stars of the game:
Star 3: Kyle Kendrick
Kendrick pitched well for 6 innings before handing the ball over to the bullpen for the rest of the game. He gave up 2 runs on 4 hits while throwing 100 pitches. He struck out 3, walked 3 and gave up a home run.
Star 2: Ryan Howard
After the Red Sox got off to a hot start in the first inning Howard quickly responded with a solo home run in the second inning. Howard went 1-4 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored.
Star 1: Domonic Brown
Brown was the Phillies offense, having a 2 home run night. He went 2-4 with 2 RBI's and 2 runs scored. Its a safe bet to say that without Brown the Phillies would not have won the game.
Well the Red Sox hav...

I heard this a couple of hours ago and I have been debating whether or not to talk about it. The reason is, I really don't care. If you haven't heard, The Red Sox have made Jonathan Papelbon's list of teams on his no-trade list included in his contract with the Phillies.
According to a major league source, Jonathan Papelbon has the Red Sox as one of the eight teams...
The Phillies have lost 3 of their last 4 games and there are still more questions about this team than there are answers. Perhaps the biggest question right now is about the Big Piece, Ryan Howard.
Take a look at the timeline for Howard this past week and a half:
Howard had a cortisone injection on May 19th; he was back in the line-up May 21st and feeling better. By May 23rd, he...
“Cinco loves that!” How fun is it to watch Jonathan Papelbon in a postgame interview? May be as fun as watching him pitch! http://www.mtrphilly.com. Talk #Phillies now on the MTR Nightcap on MTRRadio.com!

"Sibling Rivalry." I like that term for the little rivalry that Jonathan Papelbon has with the Red Sox. It went to a new level last night when the Red Sox were able to mount a rally against Pap, but Pap was able to finish us. Well, he's one of the best closers in the game. He's like Mariano Rivera, in that if you happen to get a win off...
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...

It doesn’t matter if you’re 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. John Lackey and Kyle Kendrick did their best and were way more focused than I would’ve been.
This Philadelphia Phillies fan was positioned right behind home plate showing off her low-cut tank top that is letting...
Domonic Brown has always been a highly touted prospect in the Philadelphia system. Against the Red Sox, he’s 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 wasn’t enough for Boston. Despite some late heroics, the power display from Philadelphia won the...
Given the chance to play every day, Domonic Brown is showing why he once was the Philadelphia Phillies' top prospect.
Brown hit a pair of homers, Erik Kratz and Ryan Howard also had solo shots to back Kyle Kendrick and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 Wednesday night.

If he truly is dealing with a knee issue, then why isn’t Ryan Howard the DH tonight? The lineup remains the same as in the opener of the series, when the Red Sox trounced...
The first inter-league game of the series didn’t exactly go as planned. With the pitcher hitting, the Red Sox lacked some punch, and now have to hope for a series split. Worst of all, the Red Sox saw the Jonathan Papelbon super fist pump.
Here are the four bases:
First Base: His story may have some cobwebs on it, but I still find Daniel Nava‘s tale entrancing from time to time...
