Boston Red Sox right-hander Rick Porcello let his frustration get the best of him against the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday.

After yielding a run in the first inning, Porcello walked into the dugout and, in a perfectly synched move with both hands, destroyed two TV monitors hanging above the stairs to the clubhouse.

It has been that kind of season for the 30-year-old Porcello, who had a 5.55 ERA in 21 starts entering the game.

That stat will go up after his outing on Wednesday, as the Rays had touched Porcello for five runs through five innings.

The Red Sox need the 2016 Cy Young Award winner to regain his form down the stretch.
