Rick Porcello will be on the mound for the 14th time of the year in this one. Porcello was shaky in his previous start, allowing four runs on eight hits in six innings against the Rays, leading to the defeat to drop his record to 4-6. The 10-year veteran right-hander has squandered a combined nine runs in his last two starts, and he owns a 4.86 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP in 74 innings of action.
