Two days off apparently worked wonders for Andrew Benintendi. The five days between starts for Rick Porcello weren't enough to figure out what's wrong with him.
Benintendi (pictured) went 4-for-6, falling a home run short of the cycle, in a 10-6 Red Sox win over the Tigers in Detroit Saturday night. Celebrating his 25th birthday, the Boston left fielder didn't appear to be the least bit fazed by a four-hour rain delay, coming out with a first-inning triple.
Porcello, on the other hand, hit another speed bump in the bottom of the sixth inning charged with four runs as Detroit closed the gap to 7-6. He eventually was credited with the win, but it's the third straight start in which he has given up five or more runs.

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).
