Rick Porcello gave up a pair of home runs (yeah...we know...shocking) to account for all of Kansas City's runs as the Royals beat the Red Sox 4-2 Friday night in the opening game of a 10-game home stand at Fenway Park.

The loss, the sixth in the last eight games, dropped Boston into second place behind the first-place New York Yankees.
Porcello (pictured), starting in place of the injured David Price, went seven innings in suffering his 14th loss of the year. He only allowed four hits and struck out five while only issuing one walk. He has already allowed a career-high 25 home runs this season.
The Red Sox scored in the fifth on an RBI single by Mookie Betts, and again in the seventh on a run-scoring ground out by Sandy Leon.

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).
