BOSTON — Finally, the Red Sox’s offense came to the aid of Rick Porcello.

Boston’s bats got off to a quick start against the fledgling White Sox on Thursday night, posting seven runs in the first two innings to propel the Red Sox to a 9-5 victory in the series opener at Fenway Park.
Full Game Coverage
Porcello (5-14, 4.70 ERA) earned his first win since June 23, however, the right-hander didn’t make it an easy night for himself. The reigning American League Cy Young winner gave up five runs in 5 1/3 innings. In the third, Porcello gave up his career-high 26th home run of the season to Nicky Delmonico, who hit a three-run shot for his first big league dinger.

Luckily for Porcello, Boston’s bats was firing on all cylinders, amassing 15 hits. The offense seems to be hitting the groove that fans have been expecting all summer, scoring six or more runs in four of the past five games. Every starting position player had at least one hit and eight players scored at least one run.
Rafael Devers’ impressive first homestand at Fenway Park continued, with the 20-year-old hitting an opposite-field two-run shot over the Green Monster in his first at-bat. Mookie Betts followed that blast the next inning, sending a two-run moonshot onto Landsdowne Street in the second.

Miguel Gonzalez (5-10, 5.15 ERA), who has been kryptonite to the Red Sox, had a performance he’d like to quickly forget. The right-hander gave up seven earned runs and two home runs in just 1 2/3 innings.
For the White Sox, the loss was their 20th in their past 24 games.
In his first appearance at Fenway since being traded over the offseason, White Sox top prospect and second baseman Yoan Moncada went 0-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored in his return from a collision Monday.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Devers delivers, Moncada watches: In the first, Boston’s new golden boy made a statement in front of the man who once held that moniker. Devers, the Red Sox’s No. 1 prospect, hit his third homer of the season to extend the Red Sox’s lead to 4-0. As he rounded first base, Devers trotted past Moncada, the Red Sox’s former No. 1 prospect, who was included in the Chris Sale trade in the offseason. According to Statcastâ„¢, the shot went 357 feet and was hit with an exit velocity of 97.8 mph.
Porcello gets his revenge, saves run: With two outs in the fifth and a man on third base, Porcello faced a batter in Delmonico who had bested him earlier in the evening. With the score at 7-5, Porcello had to leave no room for error to keep himself in line for the win. In the culmination of an eight-pitch at-bat, the right-hander fooled Delmonico with a four-seam fastball for a called third strike.

With his homer, Devers became the fourth Red Sox player since 1900 to hit three home runs in his first eight games. The last to do it was Mo Vaughn in 1991.
