Player Notes
Rick Porcello twirled a gem in Saturday’s win over the Yankees, going seven scoreless innings with six strikeouts and only one walk.

Advice: That makes 13 1/3 scoreless innings with 12 strikeouts in Porcello’s last two starts. The right-hander had little trouble with the Bronx Bombers, not allowing a single extra-base hit. Only one base runner advanced past second base, too, and that was quickly erased with a two-out grounder to second base. Porcello now has 36 strikeouts in 32 2/3 innings; however, considering his swinging-strike rate is perfectly in line with his career numbers, that’s likely to regress to his recent norms. Still, as someone who was heavily criticized for getting $82.5M over four years, his 2.76 ERA and five wins are being heartily embraced in Boston. He’ll next go on the road against the same Yankees club on Friday.

Rick Porcello spun 6 1/3 shutout innings while notching six strikeouts in a 1-0 win over the Braves on Monday.

Advice: Porcello yielded just four hits -- three singles -- while issuing two walks. It was an easy matchup, sure, but Porcello now boasts a sparkling 30/5 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings this season to go along with a 3.51 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and four victories. He'll try to keep it going this weekend versus the Yankees.
