Porcello wins 5th; Sox Pound Yanks [VIDEO]

The offensive onslaught from the latter innings of Friday night continued on Saturday evening as the Boston Red Sox dominated the New York Yankees in the second game of the series by a score of 8-0.

Boston jumped out early with a two run lead in the second inning off of Yankee starter Michael Pineda.  The Sox would later chase him from the contest in the sixth inning with two more runs, this time on the efforts of a Jackie Bradley Jr triple and a single by Mookie Betts.  More runs would come seventh, including David Ortiz’s sixth home run of the season and his second in as many days.
