Porcello allowed six runs -- five earned -- on 10 hits and no walks Friday with three strikeouts in a loss against the Mariners.
Porcello got ahead of hitters (21 of 27 first-pitch strikes), but he had trouble putting them away. He lowered his BB/9 to 1.89, though, with his eighth start of no walks allowed. This was the first time in six starts he failed to go more than six innings -- in the previous five starts he had a 1.75 ERA. Chalk this one up to one-of-those-nights.
