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 day and for that, Brown is our “Dominant Dom” player of the game.

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. Isn’t that all a starting pitcher really needs to do, on some level?

The last time Jonathan Papelbon walked off the mound for the Red Sox, Boston had just completed the worst collapse in team history. Less than three months later, Papelbon, the Sox all-time saves leader, walked out of Fenway for good, signing a four-year, $50 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Before last night’s game Papelbon was back...
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...
Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday that John Lackey is probably the team’s 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 hasn’t 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.
John Lackey (3-4, 2.72 ERA) is aiming to continue his recent solid stretch. He’s been on his game the last two times out, going six and seven innings and giving up just three hits while striking out 13. While the Red Sox...

"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...

On the latest edition of the PhoulBallz Minor League Podcast, Phillies reliever Justin De Fratus joined me and my co-host Tug Haines as our guest. Among the topics of discussion was the type of impact that veteran teammates have had on him thus far in his big league career.
While sharing his thoughts on Phils closer Jonathan Papelbon, the 25-year-old...
Cliff Lee pitched eight innings of four-hit ball and Jonathan Papelbon earned his first save at Fenway Park as a Red Sox opponent on Tuesday night, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 3-1 victory over Boston.
Michael Young and Domonic Brown homered for the Phillies, and Erik Kratz singled in the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning to snap Boston's four-game winning streak...
This particular “Four at-bats that changed the game” post is a complete no-brainer.
The Philadelphia Phillies ripped four solo homers — three off starter John Lackey in three-and-a-third innings and one more off reliever Koji Uehara — to edge the Red Sox 4-3 at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday night and draw first blood in a brief...

The Red Sox stumbled against the Phillies on Tuesday night at Fenway Park as former Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon closed out the ninth in 1-2-3 fashion.
Sox starting pitcher Ryan Dempster didn’t have his best outing of the season, pitching seven innings and giving up two runs on six hits. The right-hander falls to 2-6 on the season, and acknowledged after the game that he struggled...
The Boston Red Sox (32-22) will try to earn a split in their four-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies (26-27) tonight, as they have lost two out of the first three. The Sox tried to make a ninth-inning comeback Wednesday, but they fell one run short, as Jonathan Papelbon got his second save in as many nights. Tonight, Franklin Morales gets...
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...
