Rick Porcello takes anger out on water cooler during rough start vs. Diamondbacks


We're only nine games into the 2019 season, but frustrations already are boiling over for the Red Sox.

Rick Porcello got the starting nod for Friday night's game against the Diamondbacks, and it was a continuation of the rotation's struggles to begin the year. The fourth inning is when Porcello's night really started going downhill as the right-hander allowed four runs to give Arizona a 5-1 lead.

After the inning finally came to an end, Porcello reacted appropriately:

Things didn't get much better from there. Porcello was removed in the fifth inning after letting up a solo home run to Adam Jones and a double to Alex Avila. He finished with seven earned runs on 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings pitched.
