Rivalry—what rivalry? The Red Sox dominated The Bronx Embalmers on Saturday night with a convincing 8-0 drubbing at Fenway Park. Rick Porcello set the tone—getting his MLB-leading fifth victory of the year. The right-hander went seven solid innings—giving up no runs on just five hits, while striking out six. The offense was led by Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley, Jr.—each of whom had three RBIs. And, of course, David Ortiz homered yet again against The Pinstriped Posers. Boston will look to sweep away The Evil Ones on Sunday night—sending David Price to the hill.
