Michael Young had four hits, including a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied for a 6-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday in Ryne Sandberg’s return to Wrigley Field.

Kevin Frandsen had two hits and scored two runs after entering in the sixth, helping Philadelphia bounce back from Thursday’s 11-3 loss to the New York Mets. Chase Utley added a key two-run triple.

The Phillies improved to 9-6 since Sandberg was promoted to interim manager when Charlie
Manuel was fired on Aug. 16. The Hall of Fame second baseman spent most of his playing career with the Cubs and was cheered all day long in his first trip to Chicago since he was elevated to the top spot in
Philadelphia.

Anthony Rizzo and Nate Schierholtz homered for the Cubs, who blew a 5-0 lead. Starlin Castro had two hits and two RBIs in Chicago’s fourth loss in five games.

Red Sox 4, White Sox 3: Ryan Dempster returned from his suspension for hitting Alex Rodriguez and pitched into the seventh inning, leading the Red Sox to a win in Boston.

Chicago lost for the
second time in six games as it started a 10-game road trip after winning its previous five series.

The Red Sox took a 1-0 lead in the third on a bases
-loaded walk to Mike Napoli. They made it 4-0 in the fourth when Will Middlebrooks walked, stole second and scored on Shane Victorino’s single. Ortiz followed with his two-run single off Hector Santiago (4-8).

Dempster struck out five and walked three. He walked the first two batters of the game then got Alexei Ramirez to ground into a double play and struck out Adam Dunn.
