Michael Young and Domonic Brown homered for the Phillies, and Erik Kratz singled in the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning to snap Boston’s four-game winning streak.

Lee (6-2) allowed a first-inning run and then retired 22 of the next 23 batters to win his fourth consecutive decision. He struck out eight to match his season high and walked none.

Papelbon pitched a perfect ninth for his 10th save.

Ryan Dempster (2-6) allowed two runs on six hits and three walks, striking out four in seven innings for Boston.
