Another Cy Young Surprise? Three Aces No One Saw Coming

With the Boston Red Sox facing the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night (ESPN, 8 p.m. ET), the pitching matchup of Rick Porcello versus Mike Leake is particularly intriguing because Leake is perhaps this year’s Porcello. Last season, Porcello became a surprise Cy Young winner, entering the season with a career 4.32 ERA, but going 22-4 with a 3.15 ERA to edge out Justin Verlander in the voting. Leake, coming off a 4.69 ERA with the Cardinals in 2016, now leads the NL with a 1.94 ERA.
