Sale Brilliant Again, Sox Win In 10 [VIDEO]
At the end of the day the Red Sox beat the Blue Jays 4-1 but you can’t help but feel sorry for Boston starter Chris Sale.
He dominated the Jays for eight innings – no runs, 13 strikeouts, four hits and just one walk. Sale threw 102 pitches and 80 of them were strikes.
When Xander Bogaerts drove in the game’s first run in the top of the 9th inning, Sale stood ready to get a win.
But closer Craig Kimbrel gave up a leadoff home run to Kendry Morales to tie the game 1-1 and no decision for Sale.
Mookie Betts hit a bases loaded double in the 10th and the Sox went on to get the 4-1.
The Sox take two of three in Toronto to improve to 10-6.
Chris Sale’s ERA drops to .91.
