Vázquez homers twice, drives in 5, Red Sox beat Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) A little lunchtime wisdom served Christian Vazquez well.

Vazquez homered twice, including his first career grand slam, and drove in a career-high five runs to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 6-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.

The Red Sox catcher had gone without a homer for 13 straight games and had just one in 25 contests entering Sunday. He was stuck on 19 homers and trying to reach 20 - probably trying too hard. Over lunch on Thursday with manager Alex Cora and former big league slugger Carlos Delgado, Vazquez listened as the two told him not to press.
