For the second straight start against the Toronto Blue Jays, Rick Porcello struggled.
The Boston Red Sox right-hander was tagged for seven runs in four innings Thursday at Rogers Centre, as Boston fell 8-5 in the series finale.
Toronto beat up Porcello in his last start before the Major League Baseball All-Star break, tagging him for eight runs in two innings.
After the loss, Red Sox manager Alex Cora noted the right-hander’s lack of command Thursday and said they would have to try and figure out why Porcello struggles against the Blue Jays.
To hear from Cora, check out the “Red Sox Extra Innings Live” video above, presented by W.B. Mason.
