Pedroia Slams, Porcello Wins #22 [VIDEO]
Dustin Pedroia made sure the Red Sox win streak kept going - now 10 straight games. A 7th inning grand slam provided enough cushion to give the Sox a 6-4 win in Tampa Bay.
There were two outs and the Sox were down a run when Pedey whacked the ball into the leftfield seats.
Rick Porcello might not have been as sharp as other starts but he did get through 6.1 innings and picked up win #22. Porcello's 22-4 record (3.11 ERA) makes him the first 22-game winner for the Sox since Pedro Martinez in 1999 won 23 games.
Most importantly, the Sox reduce the magic number to clinch the AL East - it is down to four.
The Sox record heading into Sunday's series finale with the Rays is 91-64.
