Rick Porcello had one heck of a night against the New York Yankees on Tuesday night, striking out a career-high 13 batters.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to earn a win, as the Boston Red Sox took the 3-1 loss at Fenway Park. Despite the defeat, Porcello’s performance was one for the record books.

It represented a marked change from the pitcher Red Sox fans saw earlier this season. For Porcello, it’s the culmination of adjustments he has been striving to find all season.

Porcello spoke to reporters about those changes, as seen on NESN’s “Red Sox Final.” Check out his full comments in the video above.
