(Boston, MA) The Philadelphia Phillies suffered a traditional southside drudging at the hands of the Boston Red Sox Friday night in rout to a 12-2 loss, their fourth consecutive on the road.

Jamie Moyer evened his record at 6-6 in the loss. Moyer only lasted one inning and allowed nine runs on nine hits.

The Red Sox got to Moyer early in the first. After walking Marco Scutaro and getting Dustin Pedroia to ground into a fielders choice, Moyer allowed back-to-back-to-back doubles before Mike Lowell hit a towering homerun over the green monster to give the Red Sox an early 5-0 lead.

The Phillies allowed Moyer to start the second inning but after he walked Scutaro for the second inning in a row and again allowed the Red Sox three straight doubles manager Charlie Manuel pulled  Moyer and had to piece together the rest of the game with his bullpen.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz went 3-5 with four RBI in the effort as the Red Sox won their sixth consecutive home game.

John Lackey lasted seven innings, allowing two runs on six hits. Both Phillies runs came on one out sacrifice grounders. Raul Ibanez ground out to second in the top of the fourth scoring Ryan Howard and in the seventh Carlos Ruiz ground out to second that plated Jayson Werth.

On the offensive side for the Phillies, Jayson Werth went 3-4 with a double. The Phillies offense made effort to get out of their offensive slump ending the game with 10 hits but the hole Moyer left them in was too much to overcome.
