    BOSTON — Rick Porcello will be counted on to be one of the Boston Red Sox starters in the coming postseason.But the veteran right-hander Leonys Martin Jersey , who won the Cy Young Award two years ago, will use the rest of September to straighten himself out on the mound so he can help his team get where it wants to go.Porcello, who faces the New York Mets in the second game of a three-game interleague series Saturday at Fenway Park, is 16-7 with a 4.27 ERA on the season. However, he is 2-3 with a 5.82 ERA in his last seven starts, yielding 10 home runs over that span.Article continues below ...Prior to that, he was 14-4 with a 3.84 ERA.Porcello is 1-1 with an 8.44 ERA in two career starts against the Mets, but he has not faced them since 2013.Porcello will face Mets rookie Corey Oswalt as the Red Sox look to even the series after Friday night’s 8-0 Mets victory — their fourth in a row — which snapped Boston’s four-game winning streak.Oswalt is 3-2 with a 6.62 ERA in 14 games, nine as a starter, and he has never faced the Red Sox.The Red Sox came into Friday night’s game 35-8 in their last 43 interleague games, but the Mets hit four homers and got seven shutout innings from Noah Syndergaard for the easy win, their fourth in 48 hours. Syndergaard (12-3) gave up three hits, walked three and struck out six.The Red Sox were set to start utility pitcher Hector Velazquez on Friday, but had to make a change as Velazquez was ill, turning it into a complete bullpen game.Left-hander Brian Johnson http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/auth...-wilson-jersey , fighting for a postseason spot, wound up going 4 2/3 innings and allowing only one run — on one of the four New York homers.“He threw the ball better,” said Boston manager Alex Cora. “When he came in with the bases loaded one thing was different from the last one. I was like, ‘Hey man, slow down.’ That’s the most important thing. You have to throw strikes, but make sure you slow down. He did a good job.”With the Boston loss and a win by the New York Yankees, the Red Sox, who have already clinched a postseason berth, saw their magic number for wrapping up the American League East remain at six.The “highlight” of the game for the local fans was the sight of a couple of rats, one very large, in and near the Mets dugout, providing some comic relief and plenty of finger pointing.“The thing was, he was a nice rat,” said New York’s Dominic Smith, who recently watched a documentary about rats. “He wasn’t trying to get anybody. He was trying to run. There are some mean rats out there.”Reliever Matt Barnes Ryan Carpenter Jersey , a favorite in the Red Sox’s eighth-inning setup picture but out with hip inflammation, returned to a mound for the first time in almost a week with a side session.“Everything went well,” Cora said. “We’ll see how he recovers, and if everything goes fine, he’ll throw another one on Sunday.”Eduardo Nunez was out of the lineup Friday with a sore knee and won’t play Saturday, either.The Mets announced that David Wright, who is set to start at third base Sept. 29 in what will likely be his final game (because of injuries), will be used as a pinch hitter before that date.“I need to at least give him a few-innings heads-up,” manager Mickey Callaway said before Friday night’s game. “We’ll know how the game’s going and things like that. He’s definitely going to need a little time to prepare.”Veterans Jose Reyes and Jose Lobaton are the only current Mets with significant at-bats against Porcello. Reyes is 6-for-12 (.500) and Lobaton 3-for-8 (.375).Jacob deGrom and Chris Sale are matched up in a duel of aces Sunday, but that’s a bit misleading because Sale, who is still rebounding from left shoulder inflammation, is only slated to pitch three innings as the “opener.” OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Mike Fiers felt the adrenaline pumping early in his first day on the job with his new team, and he put it to good use.Fiers pitched 5 1/3 strong innings and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Wednesday night.Fiers gave up one run on four hits. He struck out eight and walked none.“I think it kind of stepped up another level today,” Fiers said. “Just trying to put together a good performance for this team. Definitely needed it after losing last night. We needed to come back with a win and we did that.”Fiers didn’t allow a baserunner until Yasmani Grandal led off the fifth with his 20th home run.Fiers was with the Houston Astros when he pitched a no-hitter against the Dodgers on Aug. 22 Jeimer Candelario Jersey , 2015.The A’s, desperate to add depth to an injury depleted rotation, acquired the 33-year-old right-hander from the Tigers on Monday for two players to be named or cash. He became the 13th starter the A’s sent to the mound this season.Fiers and battery mate Jonathan Lucroy were teammates on the Milwaukee Brewers from 2011 to 2015.“He did well,” Lucroy said. “He executed. Any time you can do that it gives your lineup a chance to settle in, even against a guy like Kershaw. We scratched two on him. If Fiers isn’t keeping us locked in there for as long as he did I don’t think we score those two runs.”The A’s broke a 2-2 in the eighth inning when Khris Davis hit a fielder’s choice grounder off Dodgers reliever J.T. Chargois (2-3), scoring Marcus Semien from third.Dodgers third baseman Manny Machado fielded Davis’ bouncer and fired home to catcher Grandal, but Grandal never had control of the ball when he swipe-tagged Semien. Grandal was charged with an error on the play.“It’s going to be one of those plays where it’s going to be a bang-bang play, and if you happen to have to have the ball in your hand he’s out, and if not he’s safe,” Grandal said.Jeurys Familia (3-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win and Blake Treinen worked the ninth for his 29th save in 33 chances.Second baseman Lowrie made a running catch with Yasiel Puig at second for the final out to preserve the win.Oakland won for the seventh time in eight games and improved to 34-11 going back to June 16, the best record in the majors over that stretch.The A’s closed to within five games of idle Houston, which leads the AL West.The Dodgers fell a half game behind Arizona, which beat Philadelphia on Wednesday to move into first place in the NL West.Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw gave up two runs in six innings. He remains winless in four starts against Oakland despite posting a 1.38 ERA over that stretch.Kershaw is 2-1 with a 2.10 ERA since the All-Star break.“I didn’t have much of anything tonight,” Kershaw said. “It was a little bit of smoke and mirrors. That’s a good team over there and I was getting ahead of a few guys, but especially that fourth inning where they scored the runs http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/auth...machado-jersey , a lot of hits with two strikes right there, I didn’t really have those put-away pitches when I needed them to tonight.”TRAINER’S ROOMDodgers: LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (left groin strain) pitched in a rehab game for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. He threw 71 pitches and topped out at 91 mph, Roberts said. Ryu throw again in five or six days, possibly for Los Angeles, manager Dave Roberts said. “To Ryu’s credit, he pitched well, he feels well, and so to make our decision more difficult, that’s a good thing for the Dodgers,” Roberts said. . LHP Alex Wood (left adductor tendinitis) pitched three innings in a simulated game on Tuesday. “At that point we’ll figure out where to plug him in,” Roberts said.UP NEXTDodgers: Ross Stripling (8-3, 2.68 ERA) will come of the DL (right first toe inflammation) to pitch Thursday’s series opener against the Rockies in Colorado. He’s 1-1 with a 2.88 ERA in 10 appearances (three starts) against the Rockies.Athletics: LHP Brett Anderson (2-3, 4.64 ERA) will pitch Friday’s series opener against the Angels in Los Angeles on Friday. Anderson is 2-1 with a 2.96 ERA since coming off the DL (strained left shoulder) on July 8.
