BOSTON -- Meeting the media on Friday for the first time since being traded to the Red Sox last week, right-hander Rick Porcello was asked about his personal memories of pitching here at Fenway Park. All he could do was laugh.
Porcello, whom Boston acquired from the Tigers in a trade for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and pitchers Alex Wilson and Gabe Speier, remembers quite well his start at Fenway on Aug. 11, 2009. Porcello plunked Kevin Youkilis, Youkilis charged the mound, and both players ended up tumbling to the infield grass.
