I followed along on Gameday and SoSH, but it sounded like Matt Clement pitched better than his line (6.2-5-3-3-5) -- Keith Foulke allowed two inherited runners to score in the seventh. But Mike Timlin and Jonathan Papelbon retired the last six Phillies (2 strikouts and four groundouts) for the win.
Home run offense for the Sox: Mike Lowell's two-run shot in the second (he finished 3-for-3 with a walk), Jason Varitek's solo blast in the fourth and Ortizzle's two-run bomb in the fifth. ... Shock of the night: Alex Gonzalez drawing an intentional walk in the sixth.
[And in Queens, the Yankees took a 4-0 first-inning lead only to have the Big Eunuch surrender a three-run homer in the bottom half. The Yanks scored a run in the third and Johnson (making more friends in Yankeeland!) gave the Mets two back to tie it. He threw 113 pitches in five innings. ... The Mets scored a run off Rivera in the bottom of the ninth (Lo Duca's one-out double, a two-out BBI, then David Wright's single over Damon's head in center) for a 7-6 win. Wheee!]
