BOSTON -- Rick Porcello turned in the type of strong pitching performance the Red Sox have lacked this season, firing seven strong innings en route to a 2-0 victory over the Rays on Tuesday night at Fenway Park. Mookie Betts was the Boston offense, belting two solo homers.
It was Boston's first win since April 29, and it snapped a four-game losing streak. Porcello has been the winning pitcher in the club's last two victories. Over those starts, he's allowed one run over 14 innings.
