Rick Porcello is saving his best for last in the 2013 MLB season. Five days after hurling a complete-game victory over the Chicago White Sox, Porcello fanned 10 Mariners in six innings on Monday night.
Detroit’s offense woke up just early enough to bump him from a no-decision to a victory, too, with a pair of runs in the sixth inning. That win was Porcello’s 13th on the year and his fourth in five starts. He is now one victory shy of his career high, set in both 2009 and ’11.
