Daniel Nava Hits Grand Slam On First MLB Pitch, Red Sox Crushing Phillies

Boston, MA (Sports Network) - J.D. Drew homered and drove in two runs and Marco Scutaro also drove in a pair as Boston once again pounded Philadelphia, 10-2, in the middle test of a three-game interleague set from Fenway Park.

Daniel Nava went 2-for-4 and hit a grand slam in his first major-league at-bat for the Red Sox, who have won the first two games in the series by a combined 22-4 score and have taken four of six overall.

Manny Delcarmen (2-2) allowed one hit in two scoreless relief innings for the win.

Scott Atchison allowed two hits and two runs in three full frames. He started in place of Daisuke Matsuzaka, who was a late scratch after being placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain.

Brian Schneider went 3-for-4 with a two-run double for the Phillies, who skidded to their third straight defeat and fifth in six games.

Joe Blanton (1-5) was scorched in the loss for a season-worst 13 hits and nine runs over four innings, fanning four with one walk.
