Harper homers as Phillies score 7 in 6th to beat Boston 13-6

The Phillies outfielder hit a three-run homer during a seven-run sixth on Tuesday night, and Philadelphia came from behind to beat the Red Sox 13-6 and send them to their ninth consecutive loss.

Rhys Hoskins , Phil Gosselin and Jay Bruce also homered for the Phillies, who fell behind 3-0 and still trailed 4-2 before sending nine batters to the plate with two outs in the sixth -- getting seven hits and a walk before Colten Brewer , Boston's third pitcher in the inning, struck out Jay Bruce to end it.

Blake Parker (1-0) pitched two innings of scoreless relief for Philadelphia, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out three.

We've just got to come back tomorrow with the same positive mentality that we had today,'' said Bogaerts, who was asked to compare this losing streak with the 10-game skid the team had in 2014.

... CF Jackie Bradley Jr. sat out his third straight game because of a sore left wrist he injured while making a diving catch against the Rays.

Red Sox: LHP Kyle Hart (0-1) will attempt to stop Boston's losing streak and earn his first career victory.
