It was a grind and a struggle, but E-Rod got his 19th Win of the season last night. With him being a good luck charm for the Sox bats, they barely outlasted the Rangers in a 12-10 affair. Brandon Workman notched his 16th save of the season. This season’s Sox saves leader, has the lowest amount for that honor since Keith Foulke led the team with 15 saves in a down year. 

Tonight Rick Porcello is toeing the rubber for the most likely final time as a Red Sox. With payroll trimming to take place and him having his worst season ever, it seems like a no-brainer to cut ties. There of course have been some bright spots, his Cy Young campaign and his vital bullpen assistance last October.
