BASEBALL: Brown powers Phillies past Red Sox

PHILADELPHIA — The Phillies have lost their leading hitter from last season and their best all-around offensive player of the last decade this month. The franchise’s most prolific power hitter not named Mike Schmidt has a bum knee on the same bum leg where his Achilles’ tendon snapped 19 months ago.

And the offense was a mess before all of that happened.

It might be snapping out of it. Rather, Domonic Brown might be single-handedly dragging the Phillies out of the doldrums.

Brown’s solo home run in the fourth inning gave the Phillies the lead, and another solo bomb in the eighth provided a much-needed insurance run as the Phils again pressed within a game of .500 with a 4-3 win over Boston at Citizens Bank Park.
