Red Sox's Rick Porcello: Surrenders nine hits in no-decision

Porcello allowed four runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Cardinals.

Porcello was able to settle in after giving up runs in each of the first two innings, giving the Red Sox some length before being lifted for a pinch hitter. While he hasn't been bad this season, Porcello hasn't been as dominant as he was in 2016 when he took home the Cy Young swag. His ERA stands at 4.23 after nine starts, and he's given up an MLB-high 66 hits, including 10 home runs, over 55.1 innings. The main difference from last season has been run support. He led the league with 7.6 runs per start last year, but is well down the list in 2017 with just 3.3 per start. His next start comes Tuesday at home against Texas.
