Rick Porcello Takes Command In Must-Win Game

The Boston Red Sox entered the game in Tampa Bay on Tuesday night scuffling, to say the very least. Having lost six of their last eight and holding a 9-15 record in the month of June, everything that could possibly go wrong has done just that. After holding a team meeting following an embarrassing loss on Monday night, it was up to Rick Porcello to jump start his team from the rubber...

Offense, Pitching Staff Both Come Up Big For Red Sox In Win Vs. Rays

The Boston Red Sox rebounded from perhaps their worst loss of the season with an all-around complete performance Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Rays. Rick Porcello only allowed one earned run on five hits with three walks and eight strikeouts in six innings, and the offense did its job, too, including David Ortiz, who went 2-for-4 with an RBI double. Hear what Ortiz had to say about...

Rick Porcello’s Hard-Fought Outing Vs. Rays Was Just What Red Sox Needed

In John Farrell’s impromptu team meeting Monday night, the Boston Red Sox manager called on his pitching staff to “set the tone and lead the way from the mound.” Apparently Rick Porcello got the message, because he took those words to heart Tuesday. The Red Sox right-hander allowed just one run over six innings against the Tampa Bay Rays, striking out eight batters to help...

Is Rick Porcello for Real?

The Red Sox have a clear objective heading into this summer’s trade season: improve their starting pitching. Sure, grabbing a left-handed outfielder to pair with Chris Young would be fantastic. And yes, solidifying the bullpen would go a long way towards locking a playoff spot down the stretch. Those aren’t priorities, though. This team needs another starter in the same way...

Red Sox Wrap: Rick Porcello Limits Damage In Quality Start Vs. Mariners

BOSTON — Rick Porcello showed the Fenway faithful Saturday why the Red Sox were so eager to sign him before the 2015 season. The right-hander went into Saturday’s game with a lot to fix; the Red Sox suffered an ugly 8-4 loss in Friday’s series opener, and Porcello himself hasn’t been consistent of late. And when Porcello started the game with three straight singles to load...

Rick Porcello, Christian Vazquez Start In Red Sox’s Middle Game Vs. Mariners

BOSTON — The Seattle Mariners lit up Red Sox starter Roenis Elias for seven runs over four innings in Friday’s series opener, but Rick Porcello has a chance to turn things around. The right-hander is coming off a weird start against the Minnesota Twins in which he gave up four runs, but thanks to some poor defense, only one of them was earned. Porcello has struggled at times after...

Rick Porcello Is Figuring Out His Fastballs

For one month early in the 2015 season, Rick Porcello, traditionally a sinkerballer whose fastball sits at 91, led with the four-seam. It was only the second month in Porcello’s career in which the sinker’s position as his primary pitch was usurped by the four-seam, and unlike the first instance of this happening, the magnitude of the shift was noticeable. It was the beginning...
