It was another rowdy night in Philadelphia, where Kelly was the target of public hostility after saying the fans at Citizens Bank Park couldn't be any louder than those he heard cheering for the U.S. team in the World Baseball Classic.
He was not referring to any Classic match, but to the one played in May, when Turner hit a grand slam that put the United States in the semifinals of the tournament.
"I obviously haven't heard the noise here from the field," Kelly said before the second game. "But I would be very surprised if he surpassed that meeting in Miami."
Kelly, winner of 12 games this season, was booed from the moment he was introduced until he took the mound, by the majority of the 45,412 fans determined to rock the park again in October.
How intense was the noise?
"Like an AC/DC concert," Turner said.
