Porcello, Betts lead Red Sox over Rays

Call him the stopper.

For the second time in as many starts, Rick Porcello followed a Clay Buchholz sub-par outing with a good one. Porcello went seven shutout innings and led the team to a 2-0 win over the Rays Tuesday night. The win snapped a four-game losing streak.

We should know more in the next two to three days on his status going forward. But I think it was encouraging that he came in today with some increased mobility. Still a little sore,...
