Rick Porcello allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in 3.0 innings as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Houston Astros 5-4 on Monday. Porcello struck out four, ending the game with a 4.50 ERA and 2.00 WHIP on the season.
Porcello's one ALDS start against Houston wasn't particularly good and he's now 0-2 with a 5.85 ERA in four career playoff starts.
Porcello will start Game 4 of the ALDS against the Astros on Monday, Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com reports.
Porcello didn't finish the season in the best way, as he posted a 5.93 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over his last five starts. Over said games he threw 27.1 innings and put together a bleak 21:10 K:BB. He'll face a high-scoring Astros offense in Monday's must-win contest.
Rick Porcello did not allow a hit or walk in 1.0 scoreless inning as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Houston Astros 8-2 on Thursday. Porcello did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.00 WHIP on the season.
Porcello allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight over 5.2 innings in Wednesday's 10-7 win over the Blue Jays, his 11th of the season.
Porcello wasn't at his best. He allowed his 38th home run of the season, a three-run shot in the first inning to put Boston in an early hole. Thankfully for him, the Red Sox bats showed up. That hasn't happened often this season as Porcello entered the game next-to-last among AL starters, getting just 4.3 runs of support over nine innings. He finishes the regular season with a 4.65 ERA, an ugly number that his 4.65 FIP feels is well deserved.
