There was more fire in Jonathan Papelbon's words than in the Phillies' bats on Monday night. Papelbon allowed a triple and an RBI single in the top of the ninth inning and took the loss as the Phillies were beaten, 4-3, by the Los Angeles Dodgers on an unusually raw night at Citizens Bank Park. After the game, the Phillies' closer unloaded on home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. Papelbon believed that he had struck out Dee Gordon one pitch before the Dodgers' leadoff man lined a triple to right-center on a 2-2 pitch to set up the tie-breaking run. Gordon scored the go-ahead run when the next batter, Elian Herrera, singled to left.
Papelbon's words ring louder than bats in Phils loss
