The Boston Red Sox snapped their eight-game losing streak with a 7-5 win over the Kansas City Royals on Monday night at Fenway Park.

Boston’s starters have struggled of late, but that wasn’t the case with Rick Porcello’s latest outing. The right-hander threw six innings of one-run ball, allowing just four hits and striking out five en route to his 10th win of the year. Cora noted the importance of Porcello’s effectiveness following the win.
