"It's just the Rays." "It's just the Marlins." "They caught the Yankees in a slump." "The Orioles suck anyway."

Coming into this series, the Angels had won seven games in a row and had the second-best record in the American League.

Wednesday night, Rick Porcello shut the Angels down for six innings and the Boston offense hit three more home runs in a 9-0 win to improve to a franchise record 15-2.

J.D. Martinez had four of Boston's 14 hits, including his fourth home run of the year. Rafael Devers (pictured following his grand slam) and Mitch Moreland also went deep in the victory.

Porcello (4-0) was in complete command, scattering six hits and not walking a batter. He struck out six and lowered his ERA to 1.40. The bullpen provided three no-hit innings of relief.

Boston has now outscored the Angels 19-1 in the first two games of the series. Eduardo Rodriguez will take the mound tonight in the series finale before the team heads to Oakland.
