Rick Porcello has quite the night for the Red Sox, allowing just two hits and no runs over eight innings of work in Boston’s 5-1 win over the Oakland Athletics on Thursday.
After the game, manager Alex Cora lauded Porcello for his “outstanding” performance that helped lift the Sox to a much-needed victory. Cora said the outing gave the Sox a boost, which he hopes can carry over into the series finale against the A’s and beyond.
