Rick Porcello Shuts Down Powerful Rays Lineup During Red Sox’s 8-2 Win


Rick Porcello turned in one of his best outings of his season Wednesday during the Boston Red Sox’s 8-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

Porcello pitched six-plus innings, allowing two runs on four hits while striking out seven against a dangerous Rays lineup.

Tampa Bay sports a lineup that includes star third baseman Evan Longoria, power-hitting slugger Logan Morrison and All-Star Corey Dickerson, but the reigning American League Cy Young winner was able to shut them down to help Boston pick up its eighth consecutive win.
