PHILADELPHIA (AP) —ty.Holt belted a pinch-hit tiebreaking homer http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-adams-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, 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 Max Scherzer Jersey , striking out Odubel Herrera swinging at a pitch that hit his left foot. Craig Kimbrel finished the two-hitter for his 36th save in 40 chances. He’s 41 for 41 in interleague games in his career.Leon gave the Red Sox a 1-0 lead in the third.

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, 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.
