Rick Porcello served up another strong outing - eight innings worth - as the Red Sox rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Yankees 5-3 at Fenway Park on Tuesday night.

Porcello (pictured) recorded his fifteenth win, and remained undefeated at Fenway this year (11-0), allowing two New York runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six.
It was the 100th career win for Porcello.
New York took a 2-0 lead with single runs in the second and third innings on a Chase Headley RBI double and a run-scoring single by Brian McCann respectively.
Dustin Pedroia tied the game in the bottom of the third with an RBI double. Andrew Benintendi doubled home another run in the fifth (the call was originally a home run but was overturned), Pedroia followed with another RBI double, and David Ortiz drove in another Boston run with a single in the same frame.
Benintendi went three-for-three in his Fenway debut.
Alex Rodriguez, whose season will end on Friday as per the Yankees' press conference on Sunday, was not in the lineup for New York. The Fenway crowd chanted "We want ARod" while the Yankees were batting in the ninth.

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).
