Lester, Pen Shut Out Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies offense could not get anything going
tonight as Jon Lester, Okajima,and Jonathon Papelbon shut them out as
the Boston Red Sox evened up the series with a 3-0 win. Jamie Moyer
labored through 5 innings giving up 2 runs and absorbing the loss.

The
concern here for the Phillies is that if the Marlins win tonight, they
will move to only 2 games out of first place. The Phillies drop to 5-5
in their last 10 games and need to pick it up again. Their schedule is
tough right now, but championship teams find a way to win even against
the best in the league. Let’s hope they can do just that!

Pregame Quick Hits: Phillies vs. Red Sox 6/16, 6/17, 6/18

The Philadelphia Phillies (41-29) return home to face the World
Champion Boston Red Sox (44-28) in what could be a preview of the 2008
Fall Classic. The Phillies are returning home from a road trip where
they went 5-4. This homestand will be a big test for this Phillies team
as they face two of the American Leagues best teams in the Sox and
Angels.
