Chris Sale’s Night

Chris Sale has struggled this season after his first three starts of the season going 1-1, pitching 12 innings posting a WHIP of 2.08, a 5.3 BB/9, and an 11.25 ERA. The one win he picked up this season was against the Tigers, a game in which Sale struggled going five innings, and the offense picked him up. Sale’s biggest issue was his location; the velocity was there, but he was struggling to locate any of his pitches, which is expected after not getting into a groove since 2021. Tonight he looked like the Chris Sale of old, going six innings. He did have some issues in the fifth inning but pitched himself out of a jam allowing just one run. His final stat line was six innings pitched, three hits, he allowed just one run; he would walk two and strikeout 11. He left the game with a no-decision, but the real thing from tonight’s game is Chris Sale looked like the Chris Sale of old, and that is fantastic news for the Red Sox and Red Sox fans.
