Red Sox 6, Phillies 3
Game 19 - Wednesday Afternoon, August 19th in Boston
Record - 9-10, 3rd Place, 2 games behind the Braves
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies offense quieted down and Jake Arrieta had an erratic start in this 6-3 loss.
What It Means: For the Red Sox, the win broke a nine-game losing streak. For the Phillies, they'll try to get back on track with a double header in Buffalo against the Blue Jays on Thursday.
What Happened: The Phillies quickly scored two runs in the first on a Phil Gosselin single and a Didi Gregorius sacrifice fly. They then went hitless until Neil Walker doubled to start the seventh. The offense had only three hits in the game.
Arrieta was wild, lasting 4 1/3 innings and giving up 4 runs on 5 hits and 4 walks.
Featured Card: Not a whole lot of bright spots in this game for the Phillies, but reliever Connor Brogdon impressed with his one inning of scoreless relief in the eighth. Brogdon relieved Ramon Rosso who had loaded the bases to start the inning and managed to retire the Red Sox without an inherited runner scoring. That's pretty good for a pitcher who had a card in last year's Single-A Clearwater Threshers team set.
