Boston Red Sox Win On Canada Day Against The Blue Jays

Boston Red Sox Win On Canada Day Against The Toronto Blue Jays Behind Chris Sale‘s 11 Strikeouts

On Canada day in Toronto, the Boston Red Sox defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 7-1.

Chris Sale was on the mound for the Red Sox and as usual, the ace was electric. Sale struck out 11 batters en route to a seven-inning performance where he gave up four hits and no runs allowed.

Sale is on pace for 241 IP, 172 H, 44 BB, 332 K.

Below is a little interesting comparison between Sale’s 1st 17 games with Boston compared to Pedro Martinez‘s first 17.

Behind Sale, the Boston Red Sox used Blaine Boyer and Robbie Scott.

Scott who pitched the bottom of the ninth innings gave up two hits and the only run allowed by Boston on the day.

Red Sox Offense On Point With Big Contributions From Key Players

Offensively the Red Sox collected 12 hits with Hanley Ramirez ( 3 hits), Chris Young, Sandy Leon, and Deven Marrero all recording multi-hit games. Boston’s RBIs came from three players, Dustin Pedroia (2), Xander Bogaerts (3), and Jackie Bradley Jr. (2).

Right-fielder Mookie Betts had an interesting afternoon. Betts went 0-2 but was walked a total of three times by the Toronto Blue Jays pitching staff.

Up next for the Boston Red Sox is a Sunday game at 1:07 with Drew Pomeranz on the mound taking on Joe Biagini.
