In the sixth, JBJ (pictured) tripled home Brock Holt and came around to score on an infield hit by Betts.
The Red Sox put the game away with four more runs in the seventh. David Ortiz hit his 49th career regular season home run off the Yankees to make it 5-0. Brock Holt drove in Hanley Ramirez with an infield hit and JBJ's second triple of the game drove home two more.
Porcello went seven innings before giving way to Robbie Ross Jr. in the eighth. It marked the fourth consecutive game Porcello has pitched into the seventh. He shut out the Yankees on five hits and a walk while striking out six as his record improved to 5-0. By contrast, he didn't win his fifth game in 2015 until July 8th.
The Yankees went through five pitchers, which should put a crimp on their bullpen in Sunday's series finale. Nathan Evoldi will start for the Yankees against Boston's David Price.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
