Why Red Sox’s Rick Porcello ‘Embraces’ Hitting During Interleague Play

Rick Porcello’s success this season hasn’t been limited to the pitching mound.

The Boston Red Sox right-hander has been a pleasant surprise at the plate in 2018, ripping two doubles in five total at-bats, including a three-RBI two-bagger against Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer.

Porcello clearly has enjoyed taking his hacks, which in a sense makes him feel like a complete ballplayer. To hear more from Porcello on his hitting skills, check out the video above from “Red Sox First Pitch,” presented by Joseph Abboud.
