Rick Porcello recovered from his two recent wretched outings to turn in eight solid innings. His line of five hits, two earned runs, no walks, and five strikeouts would normally be enough for the win, but the Red Sox didn’t carry forward their offensive momentum from the day game into the second leg of the double header.
The Twins got to Porcello in the second inning. Chris Hermann doubled off the Green Monster to plate Eddie Rosario. Hermann then scored on Danny Santana’s sacrifice fly.
There wasn’t much to enjoy in this game from a Red Sox fan’s perspective, but this little tyke had some fun. The child is about two feet tall, representing the two hits the Red Sox tallied.
But even that kid wasn’t as happy as Don Orsillo was when he got a lamp from Jerry Remy.
