2,574

Rick Porcello has been a tough customer most of the season, but that wasn’t the case last time out, as the right-hander was knocked around by the Toronto Blue Jays.

But the 2016 Cy Young winner will have a chance to redeem himself Tuesday as the Boston Red Sox open up a quick two-game set against the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Porcello will look to earn his 15th win of the season, while the Phillies will counter with Nick Pivetta.
