Sigh, Young. Porcello Gives Up Three HRs In 3-2 Loss

It's looks like it will be Chris Sale, Drew Pomeranz—and then a total crapshoot. On Sunday, Rick Porcello joined David Price in the 'Disappointment Dog House', with a frustrating performance in which he coughed up three solo home runs—despite going at least six innings for the 18th straight time. The result was a 3-2 Red Sox loss (the offense needs some criticism, too) that cut their AL East lead to just 2.5 games. Boston collected just six hits—two each from Hanley Ramirez (16th HR) and Brock Holt. All in all, another bad West Coast loss. On to Seattle.
