Phillies hit Red Sox with home runs

Second baseman Jean Segura and third baseman Alec Bohm hit home runs, and the Philadelphia Phillies snapped a nine-game winning streak at home to Boston with an 11-2 win over the Red Sox.

The Phillies had eight runs in the eighth inning, notching their fourth win in six games.

Segura (4) opened the game with a home run over the Green Monster in the first inning, with no runners ahead.

The Dominican sent the ball to the street when he found the serpentine of the Venezuelan starter Martín Pérez when there were no outs in the inning.

Segura finished with three hits and three RBIs.

Bohm (6) also blew the wall in the second inning with a runner ahead.

The triumph was credited to the relief Bailey Falter (1-0) in work of two episodes.

For the Red Sox the defeat was carried by Pérez (7-5) in a work of three innings and two thirds.

After Sunday’s series finale, Boston will enter the All-Star Game atop the AL East a year after posting its second-worst winning percentage in 88 years. The Red Sox were just 24-36 in last season’s pandemic reduction. EFE (HN)
