Lannan (2-3) had four strikeouts in his longest outing in four years. The lefty registered 12 groundouts to beat the team he played for his first six seasons in the majors.
Jonathan Papelbon allowed two runs in a shaky ninth to earn his 19th save in 23 tries.
Dan Haren (4-10) came off the disabled list and took the loss after missing two weeks because of right shoulder inflammation. Haren allowed two runs and seven hits in five innings, striking out a season-high seven.
Revere and Jimmy Rollins, the 1-2 hitters in Philadelphia's lineup were 5 for 9 with three runs and one RBI.
