The Red Sox ran through the Phillies on Monday night and Ben Revere almost ran through the Fenway Park wall. It was just that kind of night for Philly in Boston.
The rollercoaster ride of the Ben Revere experience continued in the 4th inning when David Ortiz ripped a ball to the wall in center that ended with Revere running almost full speed into the portion of the wall that is actually a grated fence of sorts that is absolutely unpadded. Revere amazingly held on for the catch but was clearly shaken up on the play. He remained in the game but was later taken for X-Rays on his elbow following the loss. They were reportedly negative.
What's on the other side of that garage door, you ask? Only one of the coolest bars in all of baseball, known as the Bleacher Bar. You can actually see through the door and onto the field at Fenway if you're chilling inside the bar which is basically part of the Green Monster.
Yet again another incident in walls sneaking up on outfielders. Current Red Sox outfielder and former Phillie Shane Victorino is currently missing the series between the two clubs because he's on the DL as a result of a Fenway Wall incident of his own.
The Phillies lost the game badly. It was not enjoyable to watch.

It looks like all three members of the Hamstrung Trio (see story) weren't practicing again on Thursday.
At the start of Thursday's practice, Rodney McLeod, Corey Graham and Jaylen Watkins, who suffered hamstring injuries on Sunday against the Chiefs, were not participating. This will be the second straight day all three will miss practice.
McLeod was the only member of the trio to even make an appearance at practice before reporters were kicked out after individual drills. He walked onto the field with a compression sleeve on his right leg and began to watch.
There was, however, a new safety on the field. Newcomer Trae Elston, who was claimed off waivers from the Bills, was on the field for the first time with the Eagles. He was wearing No. 35.
It'll be tough for the Eagles to get Elston caught up by game time on Sunday at 1 p.m. Aside from Elston, the Eagles have just Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Maragos as safeties, although linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill could be used in a pinch and Jenkins thinks a couple cornerbacks have the ability to play safety (see story).
Ronald Darby (ankle) and Destiny Vaeao (wrist) were the other two Eagles who weren't practicing on Thursday. Darby is out for at least another few weeks with his dislocated ankle.
Vaeao missed the Chiefs game and looks to be in danger of missing another week. In his absence, rookie sixth-round pick Elijah Qualls played nine snaps and played well. Qualls could see his workload increase as the fourth DT against the Giants.
