Rick Porcello got some offensive support in a victory in which he didn’t contribute much in to last week. He allowed five earned runs over 5.1 innings with seven hits and two walks against him.
In his last outing against the Rays, Porcello got credited with a loss despite tossing a six hit, one run, complete game gem.
Jake Odorizzi was roughed up in his latest start against Boston. He fell victim to seven runs over eight hits and three walks in just 5.1 innings. This will be his first start since returning from the DL.
