For all the Red Sox' woes this year, they're still right in the thick of the postseason race . . . unlike the Phillies, whose season is pretty much over.
Felix Doubront couldn't shake off his recent slide, and couldn't control many of his pitches Sunday. Going just 4.1 innings, it's clear Doubront isn't who he was earlier this season.
Ryan Kalish wasn't in the starting lineup on Sunday, but he still made one of the biggest contributions of the game in a pinch-hit role in the 10th inning.
Will Middlebrooks left in the 9th inning of Sunday's game against the Mariners with tightness in his left hamstring. He will be evaluated further Monday.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia thought he deserved to make the All-Star Game, and even though he didn't, he's happy his teammates felt the same way.
