Boston Red Sox: Rick Porcello start shows both sides of season


After the Red Sox spent the top of the fifth inning in Tampa Bay absolutely crushing balls and taking names against the Rays to build a 6-nil lead, Rick Porcello took the mound to continue his gem of a night to that point. Then center fielder Mallex Smith watched strike one, swung at a pitch in the dirt and then looked at strike three. Odorizzi gave up two runs but struck out six and didn't walk anyone in a rehab start for High-A Charlotte last Friday to clear his way for a return. Garrett Cooper had four hits and two RBIs for the Yankees. After Mookie Betts grounded into a fielder's choice for the out at second, Devers grounded to Pruitt, who tried to turn a 1-6-3 double play but made a wide throw to Adeiny Hechavarria, who could only get the force at second, allowing Pedroia to score.

Cincinnati catcher Tucker Barnhart hit a three-run homer off Jose Torres. Martin Perez scattered three hits over eight innings and blanked NY until Wilmer Flores' solo homer in the sixth. Howie Kendrick added three hits and three ribbies as Washington regained its 14-game lead in the NL East. Gio Gonzalez improved to 10-5 by limiting Miami to a run and seven hits over seven frames. He shutout the Rays over eight innings, allowing only two hits and a walk. Austin Hedges homered for a 5-0 lead in the sixth. Bellinger homered in the second and doubled to open a two-run seventh inning. Herrera was 2-for-4, scored one run and drove in a run.

MINNEAPOLIS - Brian Dozier hit his first career grand slam and Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario each homered twice, powering Minnesota to a two-game sweep of Milwaukee.

Benintendi finished the night 3-for-5 and is 11-for-22 (.500) in six games since sitting two games in a row to regroup last week. Tyler Duffey (1-3) relieved with two innings for his first victory of the season, and Dillon Gee struck out five over four scoreless innings for his first career save.

Twins starter Adalberto Mejia was pulled with one out in the fourth inning with pain in his upper left arm, after allowing seven hits and three runs. David Freese added two hits for the Pirates, and Felipe Rivero worked a flawless ninth for his 10th save.

Anderson's RBI double in the sixth gave Chicago a 5-0 lead before Leury Garcia followed with a two-run single. After the game, he revealed that it wasn't until he returned to the dugout after the inning when he realized what he had done.

PIRATES 6, TIGERS 3: Andrew McCutchen hit his 23rd home run of the season and Pittsburgh downed Detroit at Pittsburgh.
