Boston Red Sox Win Behind A Cy Young Performance By Chris Sale

Boston Red Sox Win Behind A Cy Young Performance By Chris Sale

Rays reliever Ryne Stanek gave up singles to Xander Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland to put runners on first and third with no outs.

The Red Sox have now won seven in a row, their longest winning streak of the season, and they also increased their lead for first place in the A.L. east over the NY Yankees to four games, with the Toronto Blue Jays doing the Red Sox a favor by beating the Yankees 4-2 at the Rogers Centre last night. After Mookie Betts grounded into a fielder's choice to get the out at second, Devers grounded to Pruitt, who tried to turn a 1-6-3 double play but made a wide throw to Adeiny Hechavarria and could only get the force at second, allowing Pedroia to score. The All-Star left-hander has a 10.50 ERA in three starts since his return. He shutout the Rays over eight innings, allowing only two hits and a walk. The over is 11-5 in Tampa Bay last 16 Wednesday games and the over is 8-1 in Odorizzi's last 9 starts overall while Tampa Bay are 3-8 in Odorizzi's last 11 starts.

Sale owns a 1.17 career ERA against the Yankees - the lowest by any pitcher with 50 innings against them. The Reds have gone 7-18 since the All-Star break. He's the first pitcher since 1913 to do so twice. Sale struck out 13 batters in 8 innings of work while walking one batter en route to his 14th win of the season.

In Pittsburgh, Andrew McCutchen hit his 23rd homer, to lead the Pirates to their fifth win in six games.


McCutchen took Boyd to the seats in center field leading off the fourth for his franchise-record 13th interleague home run.

There was the whole David Price-Dennis Eckersley controversy and multiple players had admitted the Red Sox missed David Ortiz. "I wanted to come back and be good for this one". He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

Jeremy Hellickson (7-6) was matching Bridwell until running into trouble in the seventh. Nunez is hitting.422 with four homers in 10 games since being traded to the Red Sox while Devers is hitting.319 with three homers.

SAN FRANCISCO - Buster Posey hit a three-run homer in the first that was upheld after review and later stole a base, Ty Blach won his second straight start and the Giants beat the Cubs.
