BOSTON -- Rick Porcello wasn't great Wednesday night, but he pitched well enough to put the Boston Red Sox on the doorstep of their second consecutive American League East title.
Porcello tossed 5 2/3 serviceable innings of five-run ball, and the Red Sox bats picked him up en route to a 10-7 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park.
"Tonight after a rough start to the ballgame, he settled down just enough and the offense covered it," Red Sox manager John Farrell said of Porcello.
