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

It was his third major league start and he has gone seven innings in each outing.

Monday night's 6-5 win over the Phillies in 11 innings was the closest thing this season to the ideal vision of the Sox offense. And I know that's been a recurring answer to the question about Tyler.

It came back to haunt him in the third when he surrendered the game-tying two-run homer to Aaron Altherr, who crushed his 10th homer on an 88.8 miles per hour cutter from the lefty. "That's a part of it". Deven Marrero pinch-ran and moved up on a sacrifice. He'll do so against a Phillies team that's averaged 2.33 runs during its six-game losing streak.

LF Andrew Benintendi hit a solo homer and then stroked an RBI single his first two times up Monday night. Casey Fien got the call next, the game now tied 5-5 in the eighth, and lasted through two innings without allowing a run.

A little bit later, Benoit was bent over in disgust as Hanley Ramirez smashed a game-tying home run in the eighth then danced around a lot at home plate.

"It was tough", said Eickhoff, who has seven losses this season. He's now allowed three runs on five hits in 1 2/3 innings since returning. "These guys did a really good job of getting us out to a good lead, and I was just trying to keep us in the game the best I could".

Reigning AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello had another rough outing. He was 9-3 with a 4.11 ERA last season at Fenway and has a 3.26 ERA lifetime at the storied park. He started the 11th inning rally with a solid single to right-center.

Kendrick stole his second and third bases, but with runners on second and third with two outs, Xander Bogaerts' short-hop stop of an Andrew Knapp shot ended the inning.

"He's not all the way there yet, obviously with the number of hits he surrendered here tonight", said Farrell. One of the hits was a two-run homer by Aaron Altherr. He finished 3-for-5.

Howie Kendrick went 3-6 with three singles. He was aided by a pair of double plays.

What a chance they had in the 11th inning.

The team had an opportunity to take the lead in the 10th.

With Rick Porcello pitching more like the 2015 version of himself than the 2016 version, Drew Pomeranz a constant hit-or-miss starter and Eduardo Rodriguez on the shelf with another knee injury, the Red Sox will undoubtedly need more from Price going forward. Red Sox TV analyst Jerry Remy revealed he is battling cancer for the fifth time.

Philadelphia and Boston meet for two games at Fenway Park before the series transitions to Citizens Bank Park for two more games on Wednesday and Thursday.

- The latest update on Tyler Thornburg isn't good news for the Red Sox. Red Sox LHP David Price pitches at home for the first time since last week's obscenity-laced tirade aimed at the media in NY when he faces rookie RH Ben Lively in Game 2 of the four straight games between the teams Tuesday night. He has been up and down this season and is just two starts removed from not making it out of the third inning, so it is hard to be too confident in him.
