'Kelly's Heroes' Hang On For 7-5 Victory Over Phillies

Joe "70s Adult Film Mustache" Kelly has now won seven straight decisions since donning his facial hair. Last night, he hurled six solid innings in Boston's 7-5 win over the AAAA Philadelphia Phillies. Boston's offense was again paced by the kids—Mookie Betts (2-3, RBI, R); Xander Bogaerts (2-4, 2 RBI, R); Jackie Bradley, Jr. (1-3, HR, RBI, 2R). David Ortiz just missed his 496th HR in a wacky seventh inning that saw four Carmine Hosers cross the plate—including a mad dash home by the nearly 40-year old Papi. Jean Machiagain—almost blew a large 9th-inning lead and must go. All in all, a nice win over a team whose only recognizable star, sadly, is Ryan Howard.
