Phillies 2, Red Sox 1: Vance Worley Takes His Turn Shutting Down Sox

The Red Sox came into Philadelphia with the highest scoring offense in baseball, however through two games against the Phils they’ve managed just one run with Cole Hamels looming in the series finale.

One night after Cliff Lee two-hit the Sox, Vance Worley turned in a very impressive seven inning effort giving up just five hits and one run for the win. Michael Stutes and Antonio Bastardo each pitched a perfect inning to close it out. All three pitchers are 25 or younger.

Sox starter John Lackey turned in a solid performance himself, but was victimized by an old nemesis in Raul Ibanez, who has absolutely owned Lackey in his career (.352). Raul was 3-3 tonight, knocking in the Phillies only two runs, including what proved to be the game winning homer in the 7th.

Tonight seals the series win for the Phils, which marks the first time they’ve taken a series from the Sox since 2003. Cole Hamels takes the hill tomorrow afternoon looking for the sweep.
