Rick Porcello Looks To Build On So-So First Start Vs. Blue Jays

Rick Porcello’s first outing of the season was a somewhat forgettable one.

The Boston Red Sox pitcher gave up two two-run homers to Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista, though Porcello managed to stay in the game and limit the Blue Jays otherwise to earn his first win of the 2016 season.

He’ll hope to build on that mediocre performance Friday night when he faces Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey once again.

NESN’s Dave O’Brien and Dennis Eckersley previewed that matchup on “Red Sox Gameday Live.” Check it out in the video above.
