Rick Porcello … uh … did not have a very good Saturday. Making his first start in 10 days, Porcello lasted just two-thirds of an inning before Jim Leyland put him out of his misery. At that point, the Los Angeles Angels already had a 9-0 lead on the Detroit Tigers en route to a 10-0 victory. The first six Angels batters reached base on five singles and a walk. Then, after Porcello induced a double play, three more Angels singled to bump the lead to 5-0 and load the bases for Mike Trout. Trout did the rest, mashing his first career grand slam.
