Pedroia's single wins it in 11th; Red Sox beat Phillies 6-5

Struggling starters square off as Red Sox host Phils

Struggling starters square off as Red Sox host Phils

Even 22-year-old Andrew Benintendi was getting tired.

The Boston Red Sox (34-28) take on the Philadelphia Phillies (21-40) in a rare home-and-home series.

"We've played some long games on consecutive days".

"It was tough. I was trying to keep us in the game as best I could", Eickhoff said.

Franco singled three times, doubled and walked. After leaving runners stranded in the 10th and 11th, it was Benintendi who got it done before the night got any later. One of the hits was a two-run homer by Aaron Altherr. The ball bounced over the short wall in right, but was officially still a single. Mitch Moreland clubbed a 449-foot homer to highlight the Red Sox's attack.

The Phillies' losing streak reached six in the first of four straight interleague games between the teams in two cities. "He's not all the way there yet, obviously with the number of hits he surrendered here tonight", said manager John Farrell. "So many guys chipping in from a big night from Mookie at the top of the order to two critical and crucial innings from Matt Barnes after he's been worked fairly heavy of late". Their record drops to 21-41.

RHP Tanner Hauck was selected by the Red Sox with the 24th pick of the draft Monday night. The Red Sox won 4-3.

The Red Sox scored one run each in the first, second and third innings against Phillies rookie right-hander Ben Lively. "He didn't start nitpicking, he wasn't afraid to throw strikes, came right after the hitters".

Deven Marrero bunted but pitcher Jeanmar Gomez threw to third base to force out Ramirez. Price will look to rebound Tuesday against the Phillies. Kershaw (9-2) allowed two runs in seven innings and has not lost in his last eight starts. But when he did enter, he had one great play in the field - a diving snare of a Daniel Nava liner - and one bad, a booted routine grounder right after.

The Red Sox loaded the bases with one out in the first but only got one run out of it.

Boston lefty David Price gave up four hits and three runs over six innings.

The Phillies then took a 5-4 lead in the fifth inning, but Joaquin Benoit, making his second appearance since returning from the disabled list, was tagged for a homer in the eighth inning.

Howie Kendrick singled, and when Maikel Franco made contact two batters later, it sounded like it was gone.

"I was kind of surprised by them sending him", Benintendi said. "I wouldn't have known that, given his career here in Boston". Boston is 11-1-2 in its last 14 since 2004. "But while he's working at it to get back to being a little bit more refined, we picked him up offensively here tonight".

Health check Results of Cesar Hernandez's MRI are in. Philadelphia traded LHP Joely Rodriguez to Texas earlier Tuesday for a player to be named or cash.

Exactly seven-years ago Nava hit a grand slam on the first pitch of his first plate appearance while playing for the Red Sox in Fenway. Andrew Benintendi went 3 for 5 with a double and the game-winning RBI in the 12th inning as part of his two RBI evening. Coming off a complete game shutout May 27 against Seattle, Johnson didn't figure in the decision Friday when he pitched 4 1/3 innings against Detroit. Cliff Lee was the last Phillies' pitcher start a season winless in his initial 13 starts, opening 2012.
