Jim Monaghan Contributing Writer
A five-RBI night from Travis Shaw and six innings from starting pitcher Rick Porcello helped provide the Red Sox with a much-needed 8-2 win over Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field.

Shaw (pictured) began the scoring in the top of the second with his eighth home run of the season. He finished the night a triple short of the cycle.
Porcello held the Rays scoreless until the bottom of the fourth when he loaded the bases on a pair of walks and a single, and then walked a run in. He settled down after that striking out two and getting a fly out to end the threat. He struck out eight in earning his team-leading ninth win of the season.

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).
