Rick Porcello atarted for Boston going 6.2 innings. He gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out five. He's now pitched into the seventh inning eight times in ten starts this season.
Xander Bogaerts had three hits for the Red Sox, including his sixth home run of the year. His hitting streak now stands at 21 consecutive games.
Travis Shaw and David Ortiz also went deep for Boston; Ortiz's blast in the top of the ninth gave Boston a short-lived 9-8 lead until Kimbrel's implosion in the bottom of the inning.

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 and radio (WDHA).
