Rhys Hoskins went 1-for-3 and scored twice for Philadelphia, while Carlos Santana added insurance with an RBI single in the ninth inning. Jorge Alfaro and Scott Kingery also drove in runs for the Phillies, who remained a half-game ahead of the Atlanta Braves for the top spot in the NL East. They earned this tough road win despite stranding 13 runners on base and finishing just 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position.
Arrieta earned the win to finish 4-0 in six July starts, as Tommy Hunter and Seranthony Dominguez closed things out. Dominguez earned his 11th save, stranding both J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts in the ninth. Martinez's RBI double in the sixth inning scored Blake Swihart for the Red Sox's only run of the night. Drew Pomeranz allowed just two runs on three hits over five innings, falling to 1-5 on the year. The one thing that haunted him was his four walks and two hit batters.
Another bright side for the Red Sox was the debut of second baseman Ian Kinsler, whom they acquired from the Los Angeles Angels on Monday. Kinsler singled in the fourth inning for his lone hit of the night.
Maike Franco did go 2-for-3 on the night, as the Phillies will enjoy Wednesday off before beginning a series with the Miami Marlins on Thursday. The Red Sox will do the same ahead of their crucial series with the New York Yankees.
