Phils Endured A Hopeful Wake-Up Call

The Phillies were simply humiliated Friday night. Jamie Moyer got hammered and the offense went to sleep again as the Boston Red Sox made Philadelphia look pitiful in a 12-2 win.

Moyer got rocked for one-plus inning for nine runs on nine hits and a walk. He allowed six doubles and home run in the poor outing. He saw his ERA shoot up over one whole run. Kyle Kendrick pitched two innings of relief as he will be skipping a start against the New York Yankees next series.

Jayson Werth was the only bright spot offensively, going 3-for-4. David Ortiz with a few others had a field day. Big Papi went 3-for-5 with two doubles and four RBIs while Marco Scutaro, Victor Martinez, and Adrian Beltre had multi-hit efforts.

Doubles: Werth (24), Gload (1).

WP: Lackey (7-3). LP: Moyer (6-6).
