Chris Sale gave Boston Red Sox a 3-0 victory over Los Angeles Angels. He struck out thirteen over eight innings of two first ball to lift Boston. In the last two starts, Sale had allowed fourteen runs in nine innings. He, however, got back to his standing. He is now striking the 13th double digit this season.
It is clear that Boston Red Sox have been waiting for this moment. Sale resurgence will be welcomed especially at this moment they are awaiting to defend the World Series title. Red Sox have been on the losing streak in the last nine out of ten games. They have also been competing along Tampa Bay and Oakland for the AL wild card.
Los Angeles Angels got their seventh consecutive loss; Mike Trout went 1 for 4 with three strikeouts. The Eight-time All-Star, turned 28 years just a day before the Thursday’s game. He is one of the players in the MLB to hit 278 home runs before reaching that age.
Peters (2-1) allowed three runs and five hits while striking out over six innings.
Sale made a record by reaching 200 strikeouts in each of the past seven seasons.
Angels Catcher Kole Calhoun also made an incredible catch. He dived near a pesky pole on a ball hit by Xander Bogaerts leading to fans cheering at him at Fenway Park.
