South Philadelphia will have a distinct Boston flavor. The Phillies host the Boston Red Sox in tonight’s beginning of a weekend series at Citizens Bank Park. Across the street, the 76ers and Boston Celtics will play Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal.
Both the Phillies and Red Sox are in last place, but in much better position than a week ago.
The Philies (20-19) have won five in a row, while Boston (18-20) has won six of its last seven.
Charlie Manuel is suspended for the game after his ejection with umpire Bob Davidson on Tuesday.
