Sox's first pinch HR of year lifts strong Porcello

Rick Porcello allowed just one run on two hits and fanned a season-high 10 batters over seven stellar innings, but playing in a National League park and his spot in the order coming up in the eighth, manager Alex Cora did the conventional thing by turning to a pinch-hitter.
