There's a lot, a lot of culture here

The Red Sox visit to Philadelphia, the baby New York, over the weekend may have been filled with meals of cheesesteaks and pretzels, the Sox still took two of three from the National League squad.

FRIDAY: Matt Clement improved to 4-3 after pitching well, only allowing the three runs on five hits in 6 innings. He even scored when Big Papi David Ortiz hit two-run home run in the fifth inning. The Sox had 2 more home runs, which was just enough in the 5-3 win:

SATURDAY: Was as all Josh Beckett. The righty improved to 6-1 on the season and had two hits, including a solo home run in the 7th and a game-tying RBI in the 6th. The Sox went on to win 8-4, for their 5th strait win in Philadelphia.

Beckett's homer was the first for a Red Sox pitcher since Marty Pattin hit one on Sept. 26, 1972. Beckett's first career homer came last year against Washington's John Patterson. Only 712 more to tie Ruth and Bonds. UB is afraid Aaron may be outta reach...

SUNDAY: Didn't go as smooth. The game included a costly drop by Wily Mo (above) and a crummy start from Lenny DiNardo, who didn't make it out of the third inning of a 10-5 loss. Since the Red Sox don't hit lefties and Lenny DiNardo can't get anyone out as a lefty, WEEI's Gerry Callahan wondered Monday morning who would come out on top if the two ever met up...The loss once again opened up questions about the #5 spot in the rotation...Enter David Wells:

Boomer had his 1st rehab start, playing for the Pawtucket Red Sox, Sunday. He didn't look amazing but at least he got out there...His mouth was running on all cylinders as Wells had harsh words for Barry Bonds, who tied Babe Ruth for second all-time with his 714th home run Saturday. But he also threw his former teammate, Phillies outfielder David Dellucci, under the bus on the steroid issue.

Trying to make up for suggesting Dellucci was a juicer based on inflated home run numbers, Wells blasted the media:

FROM THE BOSTON HERALD: "I've known David for a long time. I've been a teammate," Wells ranted after his rehab start against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons. "The guy busts his ass in the gym, and he works out hard. We were just making conversation. I wasn't accusing him or anything of the sort. So the (expletive) who did it, or the (expletives) who did it, I think they need to eat a full bowl of (expletive). And you can quote me on that. (Expletives)"

So it sounds like Wells will be back soon...

"Well we'll certainly be looking forward to that Greg..."
