2016 AL Cy Young winner Rick Porcello is having an ugly 2019 season, with a 5.74 ERA in 122 1/3 innings pitched. Things were particularly rough for the right-hander on Wednesday night at Fenway Park, when he allowed six earned runs and three homers in 5 2/3 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Well, it didn’t take long in the start for Porcello to get extremely frustrated. And it actually came after an inning in which he only allowed one run.
After an 18-pitch, one-run first inning, Porcello took his frustration out on two television monitors in the Boston dugout.
