The Phillies left 12 men on base, including 6 in scoring position, in their 3-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
Joe Blanton pitched 6.1 solid innings allowing just two earned runs on four hits and one walk. He struck out four. Chad Durbin gave up the only other run, a solo home run by Jacoby Ellsbury.
The Phillies scored their only run when Ryan Howard drew a two out walk with the bases loaded.
Cole Hamels was scheduled to pitch in a minor league game, but due to the rain, he will pitch in tomorrow’s minor league game instead.
