Porcello (pictured) improved his record to 11-2 allowing just a first-inning run on a Brad Miller home run. He followed with six shutout innings, scattering six hits and striking out five without walking a batter.
The Red Sox are now 13-5 in games started by Porcello this year.
Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the fourth, Bogaerts cleared everything in left field with his tenth home run of the year, driving in Dustin Pedroia.
Pedey added some insurance with a two-RBI single in the bottom of the fifth.

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).
