5/17:Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale got his fourth win of the year in a 6-4 game over the Athletics on Wednesday. In a rare short outing, Sale lasted only five innings while allowing two runs and four walks but struck out nine batters. It was just an abnormal night of Sale overworking himself. He will likely get back to befuddling batters in his next outing versus the Rays.--Ellis Canady - RotoBaller

  • @IanMBrowne: And that's all for Sale, who hands a one-run lead to the bullpen with 12 outs to go.
  • @PeteAbe: Matt Barnes warming up purposefully with Sale at 102 pitches. His night is likely done after five innings.

  • @IanMBrowne: The Athletics have made Sale work -- he is at 101 pitches with two outs in the fifth.
  • @alexspeier: Sale hadn't been giving up hits, but control problems have him at 99 pitches through 4 2/3 innings. There's some stirring in the bullpen.
  • @IanMBrowne: Sale had been untouched all night -- only allowing an infield hit. And Semien hits a two-run rocket to put Oakland within a run at 3-2.
  • @alexspeier: Sale has now allowed 7 homers this year, 5 in his third time through the order.
  • @PeteAbe: 145 mph pitch for Sale on the Fenway scoreboard.

    Statcast is self-aware. Save us, John Connor.
  • @alexspeier: Sale just missed on a slider to Pinder for his 4th walk of the night -- his most walks in any start since he's joined the Red Sox.
  • @PeteAbe: 1-hit shutout and seven strikeouts through 4 innings for Chris Sale. But also three walks and a hefty 80 pitches. 3-0 Sox.
  • @PeteAbe: 30 strikeouts in the last 17 innings for Chris Sale.
  • @IanMBrowne: That sinking feeling when you realize two batters into the game that you forgot to put Chris Sale back into your fantasy lineup ...
