Sale struggles in return to Chicago

Sale struggles in return to Chicago

Here are more notes from Red Sox vs.

"It's going to be weird seeing Chris out there, " Hahn said on "The Mully and Hanley Show" Tuesday morning.

INDIANS 5, ATHLETICS 3: In Cleveland, Edwin Encarnacion hit one of Cleveland's three solo home runs as starter Carlos Carrasco won his third straight decision.

Sale (6-2), who spent his first seven seasons with the White Sox, allowed six runs (five earned) on 10 hits in five innings - his shortest, shakiest outing this season.

White Sox: RHP James Shields (right lat strain) threw 45 pitches over three innings in a simulated game.

"He's one of the top 10 pitchers in the world", said White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper, who forged a close bond with Sale during his time in Chicago.

Marrero drove in five runs and doubled his career home run total. Price may have been the third-best starter on the Red Sox, certainly behind Cy Young award victor Rick Porcello and, arguably, behind knuckleballer Steven Wright as well.

- Pomeranz now is sixth in Major League Baseball in strikeouts per nine innings with 11.3. "Probably never", he said.

Like a transfer student from a rough-and-tumble high school, Sale was grateful for the lessons learned at the School of Hard Sox. "He's aggressive with the hitter, he tries to be quick with the games, throw a lot of strikes". Bradley has hit just.207 with five home runs and 13 RBI.




His injury was not the only reason for disappointment in the Red Sox locker room, however.

Padres rookie right-hander Dinelson Lamet (2-0) picked up his second win in as many major league starts, holding the Cubs to two runs on five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts in five innings. Quintana got cute with another curveball, and Marrero rocketed it into the left-field bleachers again.

Chris Owings snapped a scoreless tie with a double in the sixth inning, and the Diamondbacks ended a three-game losing streak.

It was a high scoring game for both sides. "Tonight he hit the ball with authority". But the Red Sox 2nd baseman has been placed on the 10-day disabled list to rest and let the swelling and inflammation of the wrist diminish.

Sandoval has been sidelined since April 25 because of a sprained knee.

With their Tuesday Night win, the Red Sox evened out their series against Chicago 1-1.

And for two starts, at least, Pomeranz looks like the answer. The Cabrera error did extend a game that could have been over in nine innings and instead lasted almost four and a half hours, but the guy he really should make amends to is star pitcher Tyler Pill, who would have been in line for his first major league win had the Brewers not tied the game up late. The switch-hitter gave them offense out of a third baseman. Despite the fact he was roughed up, those are the kind of games that make an ace an ace. Before his breakout night, he was batting only.175 with a.230 on-base percentage in 21 games, a lack of production that was consistent with his struggles at the plate in Triple-A. "They can do it to me. but I can't do it to them", Rodriguez said, citing his youth". "That's what I've done".

At the French Open, where things are more genteel, Montreal native Eugenie Bouchard won her first round match against Japan's Risa Ozaki in straight sets yesterday. It will surely be an emotional day for the left-handed pitcher. "That has been a big boost for us". "A little piece of my heart will always be here for sure", Sale said of the warm welcome home from the fans. Chicago is playing decent ball as of late, and should be able to get to Pomeranz, so I'll take a shot with Chicago and the plus money. "It was pretty cool".
