Porcello improved to 15-8 on Tuesday, tossing eight innings of nine-hit, two-run ball while not issuing a walk and striking out two against the Yankees.
Strangely enough, both runs came on a pair of solo homers from Jacoby Ellsbury. The sixth-year big leaguer has been great this season, posting a 3.06 ERA and 1.12 WHIP -- both of which are well below his career numbers of 4.28 and 1.35 -- while providing rock solid dependability at the back end of a star-studded rotation that features Max Scherzer, David Price and Justin Verlander. Porcello will look to build upon his career-high 15 wins in his next start Sunday against the White Sox.
