What Can Brown Do For Philly? Top Boston, 4-3

Domonic Brown has long been considered the best prospect in the Phillies organization. But, like many who get that tag, his progression up the major league ladder has been slower than expected. But, after he clouted four home runs in three games against the Red Sox, he may be coming into his own. Brown—with two HRs last night—lead a homer-filled Philadelphia attack against Boston pitching that resulted in a 4-3 Red Sox loss. Jacoby Ellsbury's 'Comeback Tour' continued with a double and a triple, but the offense (an increasing concern on this team) was just not up to snuff against a sub-par Philly starter. A ninth-inning rally again old friend Jonathan Papelbon fell short, and the Carmine Hose are now in danger of losing 3 of 4 to a very mediocre Philly team.
