Its hard to win one game in the big leagues, let alone 20. Im definitely very proud of that.Porcello has worked at least seven innings and held opponents to three earned runs or fewer in nine consecutive starts, the longest streak by a Red Sox pitcher since Pedro Martinez did it in 11 straight in 2000.Just a model of consistency, Red Sox manager John Farrell said.

The last time Estrada failed to finish three innings was June 30, 2015, also a home loss to Boston.He was off, no question about it, Gibbons said.
