Boston Red Sox Offense Lifts Chris Sale To Victory Over Rays

Finally the Boston Red Sox offense was able to bail out Chris Sale as they helped out the left-handed ace to the tune of 6 runs giving Boston a 6-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Sale allowed homers to Logan Morrison and Kevin Kiermaier, but like usual he wad able to strike out 12 Rays batters over seven innings of work.

Mookie Betts continued to swing a hot bat and went 2-for-4 with a homer, his sixth of the season and fourth in six games. He also drove in three runs.

After Kiermaier’s two-run homer had given the Rays a 3-2 lead. The Sox rallied right away with utility player Deven Marrero coming in the clutch with a two-run double just before Betts had a double of his own to drive in Marrero.

Sale improved to 4-2 and his ERA remains a healthy 2.15 and is on pace for 319 strikeouts this season which would be a Red Sox franchise record. The current record holder is Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez who struck out 313 batters in 1999.

Boston will close out the three-game set at home Sunday afternoon with a 1:35pm start time. Drew Pomeranz (3-2 5.23 ERA) is set to take the hill for Boston and for the Rays they are scheduled to pitch Matt Andriese (2-1 3.12 ERA). There is rain projected at first pitch though with a big storm in the Boston area, unclear if this one will get played as scheduled.
