Porcello carved up the Yankees through those first five innings, throwing 60 pitches, 42 of them for strikes.

The only thing separating him from perfection is when he hit Giancarlo Stanton with two outs in the fourth.

The Red Sox scored four runs in the second and two in the third and delivered Sonny Gray an early knockout. The righty was removed after Mitch Moreland led off the fourth with a single.
