O’s Stagger Sox 9-5 [VIDEO]
After two straight wins, the Red Sox bad starting pitching showed its face again Saturday afternoon. It was Rick Porcello looking shaky again in a 9-5 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.
Porcello threw 90 pitches in four innings, giving up three runs on six hits and five walks. He is now 0-3 with an ERA of 11.12.
The Sox battled back to tie the game on a Christian Vazquez home run.
But, the Boston bullpen struggled. Colten Brewer and Marcus Walden combined to give up six more runs.
Perhaps the big storyline from the game was Baltimore's Chris Davis. Mired in an 0-for 54 slump, Davis had three hits and four RBI.
