Phillies host Red Sox while battling Braves

The Philadelphia Phillies are meeting up with the best team in baseball for the second time in two weeks.

The Phillies are hosting the Boston Red Sox for a two-game set at Citizens Bank Park starting Tuesday night. Nick Pivetta (7-9, 4.51 ERA) of the Phillies will face Boston's Rick Porcello (14-5, 4.17) in the 7:05 p.m. opener.

The Phillies (65-52) are battling the Atlanta Braves for first place in the National League East, and they return home after a 2-4 road trip that featured series losses to the Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Diego Padres. Philadelphia is 38-18 at home this season.
