Rick Porcello drove in three runs and held the Nationals at bay over six innings as the Red Sox rebounded from Sunday night's ugly performance against the Yankees on national television with a 4-3 win over the Nationals in Washington.

With the game scoreless and two out in the top of the second, Max Scherzer intentionally walked Jackie Bradley Jr. to face Porcello with the bases loaded. Porcello cleared the bases with a booming double to left center to give Boston a 3-0 lead.
Porcello (pictured) went six innings for his 10th win of the season. He allowed just two hits, both solo home runs, while striking out five and walking two.
Mookie Betts hit his 21st home run of the year in the seventh and also threw out a runner at third in the second inning to help stop a Nationals threat.

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).
