J.D. Drew who was booed everytime he came to bad led the Boston Red Sox past the Philadelphia Phillies by the score of 7-4.  Drew went 4-5 and fell only a triple shy of hitting for the cycle.  Drew also had four rbi in the game to lead the Red Sox in that category.

Drew and Mike Lowell went back to back when they both hit home runs in the first inning and the Red Sox never looked back from there.  Brandon Moss contributed with two rbi’s in the game as well.  Moss had a two run single in the third inning.

Justin Masterson pitched five innings and allowed four hits and two runs while picking up the win.  Masterson walked two batters, struckout one, while improving his record to 4-1.  It was a quality outing for Masterson and that is all you can ask out of him at this point.

Javier Lopez pitched a scoreless inning before Craig Hansen came in during the seventh inning and gave up two hits and two runs withour recording an out.  Manny Delcarmen ended up pitching the seventh and eighth innings before Jonathan Papelbon came in for the ninth inning.  Papelbon had no problems picking up his 21st save of the season.

With the win, the Red Sox took two out of three games from the Phillies so it was a really good series overall.  Now the Red Sox will be off on Thursday before starting a series against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday.
