Kimbrel, Pedro Martinez (2002), and Clay Buchholz (2012) are the only other Red Sox pitchers to accomplish immaculate innings. In total, pitchers have thrown 89 immaculate innings, making the feat rarer than a no-hitter (296). Matt Barnes came in and got three outs in six pitches, minimizing Porcello's damage.

Kansas City led 5-4 before Molina lined a 1-0 sinker from Peter Moylan into the seats in left field for his 14th home run of the year and his fifth career slam. "I feel like I did my job, and I can never argue with the guys coming in behind me".

Tampa Bay starter Jake Odorizzi (6-5) took a line drive off his right ankle in the fifth and had to leave the game.

The Rays did not play well behind him, making two official errors while making routine plays look hard. After Mookie Betts grounded into a fielder's choice for the out at second, Devers grounded to Pruitt, who tried to turn a 1-6-3 double play but made a wide throw to Adeiny Hechavarria, who could only get the force at second, allowing Pedroia to score.

Rick Porcello has had his share of great outings for the Red Sox in the past two seasons, but he isn't necessarily a pitcher you'd consider "overpowering".

From Rotoworld: Porcello spanned 5 1/3 innings on Thursday night, allowing seven hits, five runs and two walks in the Red Sox's win over the White Sox. Catcher Wilson Ramos fouled off the first two pitches he saw then whiffed on the third.

The Twins did the Cubs a favor as Bartolo Colon scattered five hits over seven innings of Minnesota's 4-0 shutout of the Brewers.

The bullpen entered the day leading the majors with a 2.93 ERA, and they've only recently seen the fruits of Workman's long comeback from Tommy John surgery. There were seven immaculate innings thrown in 2014.

About half of it came back online in the seventh, when the Cardinals were tacking on runs. Getting back to basics. "We have guys who can do everything, guys with a ton of experience and guys who are relatively new to relieving".

Boston finished the game with just three RBIs, scoring runs on errors by Odorizzi and first baseman Trevor Plouffe, two wild pitches and a passed ball. "He was dominant. A lot of strikes, a lot of swing-and-misses".

"I don't necessarily think (Porcello) was getting exhausted, but we shut down the inning", Farrell said.

The offense gave Porcello a rare night of big support, led by another multi-hit game from Eduardo Nunez (2-for-5) and a big night from the red-hot Andrew Benintendi (3-for-5, double, two runs scored).
