Porcello's "Immaculate Inning" Is Second By Sox In '17

It's 'Crazy Eights' time for The Carmine Hose! Last night, Rick Porcello pitched the 8th "immaculate inning" in MLB so far in 2017 (during Boston's 8-2 victory for its 8th straight win). The former Cy Young winner fanned the following Rays on nine straight pitchesTrevor Plouffe, Wilson Ramos and Mallex Smith. Earlier this season, Boston closer Craig Kimbrel tossed an immaculate inning against the Milwaukee Brewers—making the Red Sox the only team in baseball to have achieved the feat twice in 2017.
