Boston starter Rick Porcello (pictured) allowed three home runs and was charged with seven Arizona runs in just 4.2 innings on 10 hits and three walks while striking out five. The Red Sox finished the game with Eduardo Nunez on the mound.

The defending World Champs had a position player on the mound to finish a game on April 5. And there's no sign that things are about to get better.
The offense came to life late with four runs in the eighth and three more in the ninth, but by that point the game had long been decided.

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).
