2018 AL Division Series

NEW YORK -- He doesn't have Chris Sale's intimidation factor or wipeout slider. He doesn't have Nathan Eovaldi's triple-digit heat.

But as he and Red Sox go for the American League Division Series clincher Tuesday night, Rick Porcello has something they don't: a track record as a Yankee killer.

In four years with the Red Sox, Porcello sports a 2.61 ERA against the Yankees across a dozen starts.
