Video: Porcello Shuts Down Red Sox In Tigers 6-1 Win

 Miguel Cabrera #24 of the Detroit Tigers looks at A.J. Pierzynski #40 of the Boston Red Sox, after hitting a home run in the third inning at Fenway Park on May 17, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Detroit Tigers starter Rick Porcello has had his struggles against the Boston Red Sox and at Fenway Park. Saturday night was not one of those nights though.

Porcello allowed one run over eight innings while Miguel Cabrera had three hits and two RBIs to lead the Tigers to a 6-1 win over the Red Sox. It’s the 10th straight road win for Detroit.

John Lackey started this one for the local nine and wasn’t bad. He also wasn’t good. He did throw some good pitches but he also was just missing the strike zone. Basically it just wasn’t his night.

Xander Bogaerts had the only Red Sox RBI of the night with a solo home run in the 5th inning for one of his two hits. Mike Napoli had three hits while David Ortiz extended his hitting streak to 10 games.
