#RedSox Game Summary (June 28) A Bad Penny

#RedSox Game Summary (June 28) A bad penny. They say a bad penny always turns up, meaning that sometimes you get on an unlucky jag. So it was for Rick Porcello, to whom the fates have not been kind this season. He lost his 10th game of 2017 to the Minnesota Twins on little mistakes here and there, including a fastball that did not dip down and out of the zone to Max Kepler, who delivered it to the seats in right center for 2 Twins runs. In fact, Minnesota started the rough handling of Porcello right off the bat, as doubles by Joe Mauer and Miguel Sano paced a 3 hit, 2 run attack in the 1st. Rick went 6 innings, giving up all 4 Minnesota runs on 6 hits and 2 walks with 6 Ks. For the Twins’ rookie leftie, Alberto Mejía, this was an excellent first-ever game at Fenway. He went 5 2/3rds scoreless innings, giving up 5 hits and a walk while punching out 3. The only Boston run came in the 7th, when Sandy Leon singled and moved to 3rd on 2 successive walks, scoring on a fielder’s choice. Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Mookie Betts also doubled in the game, but to no avail. Minnesota beat Boston, 4-1, at Fenway Park. Record: 43-35. Game 78/84.
