Porcello struck out eight, ending the game with a 5.00 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was the 13th straight start Porcello has gone at least six innings, but he had been 0-4 with a 7.92 ERA in his previous five outings - allowing 47 hits and 27 earned runs.
June 18 10:52 AM PT11:52 AM MT12:52 PM CT1:52 PM ET13:52 ET17:52 GMT1:52 10:52 AM MST12:52 PM EST1:22 PM VEN21:52 UAE12:52 PM CT-Rick Porcello fell to 3-9, allowing seven runs on 10 hits and one walk in 6.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Houston Astros 7-1 on Saturday. Porcello struck out three, ending the game with a 5.05 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Porcello is winless in his last five starts and has yielded 18 runs and 28 hits over 18.1 innings in his last three outings. He next faces the Angels on Friday, and in his lone outing against them last season, he tossed a five-hitter.
June 13 11:05 PM PT12:05 AM MT1:05 AM CT2:05 AM ET2:05 ET6:05 GMT14:05 11:05 PM MST1:05 AM EST1:35 AM VEN10:05 UAE1:05 AM CT-Rick Porcello allowed five runs on 10 hits and one walk in 6.0 innings as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 6-5 on Monday. Porcello struck out four, ending the game with a 4.67 ERA and 1.51 WHIP on the season.

June 7 7:48 PM PT8:48 PM MT9:48 PM CT10:48 PM ET22:48 ET2:48 GMT10:48 7:48 PM MST9:48 PM EST10:18 PM VEN6:48 UAE (+1)9:48 PM CT-Rick Porcello fell to 3-8, allowing six runs - five earned - on eight hits and two walks in 6.1 innings, as the Boston Red Sox lost to the New York Yankees 8-0 on Wednesday.

Analysis: Porcello was a victim of a lack of run support in losing his previous two starts, but this defeat was largely of his own doing despite CC Sabathia keeping Boston's bats silent. The 2016 AL Cy Young winner should have a chance to bounce back in Monday's assignment against Philadelphia, as he's 4-0 with a 2.61 ERA in six interleague starts dating back to the beginning of last season.
