  • @PeteAbe: As part of Carhartt’s #Ks4Vets campaign, Chris Sale’s 300 strikeouts added $30K to their donation to @H2Hjobfairs.… https://t.co/ZLSb1B2Wrp
  • @alexspeier: What characteristics do 300-strikeout pitchers display, and how have they played out with Chris Sale in 2017? https://t.co/6nZdI17Dku
  • @PeteAbe: Info on #RedSox playoff tickets, which go on sale tomorrow:

  • @alexspeier: What makes a 300-strikeout pitcher? As they celebrated Chris Sale's milestone, members of the Red Sox broke it down https://t.co/6nZdI17Dku
  • @PeteAbe: Chris Sale stayed in the game perhaps longer than expected. When he came out, he was part a very exclusive club: https://t.co/EMl9gZz4zN
  • @PeteAbe: Here’s Chris Sale on joining Pedro Martinez as the only #RedSox pitchers with 300 strikeouts: https://t.co/PBBeFDkqc4
  • @PeteAbe: Chris Sale’s last five fastballs: 95.7, 96.4, 98.6, 99, 96.2. Finished with 111 pitches, 77 strikes.
  • @PeteAbe: Here’s the audio of Chris Sale’s postgame press conference tonight:

    https://t.co/S4ic6KlTCD
  • @PeteAbe: Sox sweep O’s. They have won six of seven and 11 of 14. Now 88-64. Sale 16th pitcher in history to reach 300 Ks.
  • @alexspeier: Sale has struck out 166 different batters this year, topped by Judge and Souza at 10 each.
  • @PeteAbe: RT @BNightengale: Chris Sale has now struck out 191 batters on the road this year, the most by any #MLB pitcher in at least 104 years.
  • @alexspeier: RT @darenw: Chris Sale with 300 strikeouts... Here's the pitch location of all of them. 🔥🔥🔥 https://t.co/LEHw7x4X6H
  • @PeteAbe: Don’t see one inning ruining Sale’s season. His accomplishment shouldn’t get lost in contrived controversy.
  • @alexspeier: And with a slider, Sale gets to 300 strikeouts against Ryan Flaherty. 8 shutout innings, 13 Ks, 0 BBs, 111 pitches, 77 strikes.
  • @PeteAbe: 300 strikeouts for Sale. First AL pitcher to do that since Pedro Martinez in 1999. Second pitcher in Sox history.
  • @alexspeier: Also: Sale pumped a 99.0 mph heater during the Hardy at-bat, matching his highest velocity on any pitch this year.
  • @PeteAbe: Sale is coming back out. You’d think saving a few bullets would be a bigger priority than chasing strikeouts.
  • @alexspeier: Sale is coming out for the 8th. A bit surprising Sox didn't turn it over to Price for another two-inning appearance.
  • @alexspeier: Assuming Sale is done, this is his 5th start of 10+ Ks and 0 BBs in '17, tying a record also held by Price ('14), Pedro ('99), Clemens ('97)
  • @alexspeier: Sale finishes Trumbo with the slider for strikeout No. 12 of the night, No. 299 of the year.
  • @PeteAbe: Sale is a savage. Leadoff double and then he strikes out Schoop, Jones and Castillo. 12 for the game, 299 for the season.
  • @IanMBrowne: Sale is one strikeout from 300.
  • @PeteAbe: 10+ strikeouts for the 18th time this season for Sale. Every Oriole in the lineup at last once, Hays twice. 297 on the season.
  • @alexspeier: That's Chris Sale's 18th 10K game this year, tied for fourth-most in one season in AL history.
  • @PeteAbe: Sale comes back for the 7th.
