PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Brock Holt took advantage of a rare opportunity.Holt belted a pinch-hit tiebreaking homer Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey , Rick Porcello threw seven impressive innings and the major league-leading Boston Red Sox beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 Tuesday night.Sandy Leon also went deep for Boston, which improved to 86-35. The Red Sox increased their total to 168 homers, matching their number from last year when they hit an AL-low 168.Porcello (15-5) gave up one run and two hits, striking out 10. He tied Max Scherzer and Luis Severino for most wins in the majors.Rhys Hoskins homered, but the Phillies wasted a solid outing from Nick Pivetta. He allowed one run and three hits in six innings.Holt hit the first pitch he saw from Tommy Hunter (3-2) in the eighth off the video screen on the facing of the second deck in right field.Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Holt wouldn’t have been used in that spot in an American League ballpark because he wouldn’t have removed Porcello after only 90 pitches.“We don’t have a lot of opportunities to pinch-hit in the AL so I was in the cage, taking flips, staying loose http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/d...son-jersey , trying to stay more ready than normal,” Holt said. “Just wanted to be ready for a good pitch to hit. Pinch-hitting is a tough job.”Heath Hembree tossed a perfect eighth, striking out Odubel Herrera swinging at a pitch that hit his left foot.

He’s a good athlete, he competes.”Porcello retired his first 12 batters before Hoskins drove his 23rd homer out to left in the fifth.The Phillies have lost five of seven to fall into second place in the NL East behind Atlanta.“I don’t see us pressing,” manager Gabe Kapler said. “I see us competing and staying in the game to the end. We lost to one of the best teams in baseball.”CATCHER APPRECIATIONPorcello on Leon: “No disrespect to any catcher I’ve ever thrown to Deshaun Watson Jersey Elite , but he’s the best. He’s the heartbeat of the pitching staff. He always knows what to throw. We rely on him. He’s as good a game-caller as there is.”NL DOMINANCEThe Red Sox have won 20 of their last 23 interleague games.ROSTER MOVESThe Phillies traded righty Jake Thompson to the Milwaukee Brewers for cash. Thompson was acquired in the trade that sent former ace Cole Hamels to Texas in 2015. He was 7-8 with a 4.87 ERA in 30 appearances, including 18 starts, in three seasons in Philadelphia. … Former Phillies closer Hector Neris was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and infielder J.P.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The San Diego Padres didn’t exactly enjoy their soggy stay in Cincinnati. Eric Hosmer got a nice parting gift from the Reds‘ cozy riverside ballpark, though.Hosmer led off the ninth inning with a home run to lift the Padres over the Reds 7-6 on Sunday night after a lengthy rain delay in the middle of the eighth inning.Hosmer took Raisel Iglesias (2-4) deep for his third homer in three days — the first time he’s strung three together in his career. It ended a rain-soaked four-game series that featured 5 hours, 22 minutes of delays.“It was great to get it quickly Youth Jalen Ramsey Jersey ,” San Diego manager Andy Green said. “It couldn’t have happened any quicker. He’s swinging the bat well. It was a big series for him.”Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman considered Iglesias a victim of his home park.“We don’t make too many excuses for the home runs,” Rigggleman said. “We give up a lot of homers, but that was a Great American Ball Park homer. Hosmer’s a good hitter, but this might be the only ballpark it goes out of.”Austin Hedges and Luis Urias each hit a two-run homer to help San Diego overcome a three-run blast from Joey Votto and salvage a split.Rain caused a delay of 1 hour, 32 minutes in the eighth, even after Sunday’s first pitch was pushed back three hours from the scheduled 1:10 p.m. start time in hopes of avoiding bad weather. Saturday’s game started an hour earlier than scheduled and was cancelled after 6 ½ innings, resulting in the Reds’ rain-shortened 7-2 win.“It seemed like it was a week long http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/jalen-r...rsey-cheap , and we were in this clubhouse the entire time,” Hosmer said of the lengthy series. “We were happy to get out of a day like this with a win. Basically, we just wanted to get the heck out of here. That’s what everybody was thinking.”Craig Stammen (7-2) pitched the eighth and Kirby Yates the ninth for his seventh save.After going 36 games without a home run, Votto tied the score with his second in two games, an opposite-field, three-run shot to left-center field that capped Cincinnati’s five-run fifth inning and tied it 6-6.Rookie Tyler Mahle, making his first start since being recalled from Triple-A Louisville and taking Homer Bailey’s rotation slot Youth Leonard Fournette Jersey , lasted only three trouble-filled innings. The Padres placed at least two runners on base in each inning and cashed in with Hedges’ 12th homer of the season in the third. Mahle, in his first Reds start since August 6, allowed five hits and two runs with three walks and five strikeouts.The Reds were hitless through the first three innings before collecting seven hits and scoring six runs in the next two against San Diego starter Jacob Nix. The rookie right-hander walked two batters and struck out a career-high five in five innings.STREAK’S ALIVESan Diego has won six consecutive season series against Cincinnati since the Reds went 6-2 against the Padres in 2012. The Padres won four out of seven this season.CAREER HIGHHedges’s homer extended his hitting streak to a career-high eight games. The catcher had a seven-game streak from Aug. 4-12.SNAPPED SLUMPSThe Reds’ Billy Hamilton snapped a 0-for-15 slump with a fifth-inning bloop single that started their five-run rally. His sixth-inning stolen base was his first since he had two on August 11 against Arizona.TRAINER’S ROOMPadres: Rookie RHP Brett Kennedy won’t make his next scheduled start while dealing with swelling in his left knee that developed after trying to bunt Friday against Cincinnati.Reds: LHP Amir Garrett is ready to be activated from the disabled list. Garrett has been out since Aug. 29 with a bruised left foot.UP NEXTPadres: RHP Bryan Mitchell (1-3), coming off his first San Diego win, makes his first career appearance against Seattle with a start Tuesday. He allowed two hits and one run in five innings Tuesday at Arizona.Reds: LHP Cody Reed (0-2) is scheduled to make his first career against the Dodgers in Monday’s three-game series opener. Reed allowed a career-high nine hits in five innings of his last start on Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
