#RedSox Game Summary (April 14) Sailing away. Rick Porcello’s high pitches were sailing, and his low pitches were belt-high. So, he adjusted to avoid giving up walks, and gave up extra base hits instead. Lots of them. Porcello went 4 1/3rd innings, giving up 8 Rays runs on 8 hits, including homers by Shane Peterson, Logan Morrison, Brad Miller, and Steven Souza, Jr., and doubles by Evan Longoria and Morrison. Corey Dickerson later doubled off Fernando Abad. The killer was the 3rd inning grand slam by Morrison. Robbie Ross, Jr. gave up 2 more on a Miller triple and a pair of singles. The Sox, once again, refused to give up. In the 5th, doubles off Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer, who got his first career Fenway win, by Dustin Pedroia and Mookie Betts generated the first Boston run. In the 7th, Dustin Pedroia singled, and pinch runner Marco Hernandez scored on a Hanley Ramirez single, though Hanley was thrown out trying to reach 2nd. The Sox scored 3 in the 9th, to give us some hope, when Andrew Benintendi hit a RBI double and scored on a fielder’s choice. Xander Bogaerts drove in Betts (who had singled) for Boston’s 5th run. But that was the end of the rally. Tampa Bay beat Boston, 10-5, at Fenway Park. Record: 5-5. Game 10/152.
