As has happened so many times in his 2017 starts, Rick Porcello gave up a first-inning home run and spotted his opponent an early lead.

The Red Sox rallied from a 3-0 deficit to outlast the Toronto Blue Jays 10-7 at Fenway Park Wednesday night.
Despite giving up five runs, Porcello managed to get the win to push his record to 11-17.
He went 5.2 innings and struck out eight while giving up seven hits and walking two.
David Price was sharp out of the bullpen getting four outs including three via strikeout.
Xander Bogaerts (pictured) paced the Boston offense with three hits including his tenth home run of the year. He also scored from first base on a Dustin Pedroia single. Though originally signaled out by the home plate umpire, the call was overruled after a Red Sox challenge.
Hanley Ramirez and Mitch Moreland also homered for Boston whose Magic Number to clinch the American League East is down to two games with four to play.

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).
