Boston Red Sox outslug Chicago White Sox; Chris Sale struggles in return

09 June 2017

But for only the second time this season in 11 trips to the mound that Sale has failed to deliver a quality start.

CHICAGO (AP) - David Price felt healthy and strong. The team announced the injury as a sprained left wrist, but it is possible that an MRI could show worse damage. He slid feet-first ahead of Pedroia, who had nowhere to go and tumbled over the top of the burly first baseman.

John Farrell gave the ball to Adam LaRoche brothel-cop partner Blaine Boyer in the eighth, and the team Boyer once called evil in the biblical sense bedeviled him for four hits over two-thirds of an inning, including a solo shot by Tim Anderson to start it.

Sale did get the win, with Quintana having even more trouble with Sale's new teammates than Sale did with the White Sox. Since he moved up to the No. 2 spot, Stanton is 12-fo-29 (.414) with three homers and seven RBIs in seven games.

Boston almost tied the game in the 8th, but a drive by Mitch Moreland hooked foul in right field.

"Things are going well for us right now", Cabrera said. He returned from the disabled list to allow two hits, two walks and two hit batsmen. But the 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor had some nice moments as well, allowing just two hits and striking out four while throwing 88 pitches, 58 for strikes.

The 31-year-old is in his second season of a seven-year, $217 million deal he signed with the Red Sox in December of 2015. I don't want to bother anybody over there, but I still want to go see them, say hey to them, tell them I miss them, stuff like that.

Unable to secure enough support for either of two draft resolutions, the foreign ministers said they'd reconvene in a few weeks. Other indexes managed by Citi, Barclays, Morningstar and Bank of America have Venezuelan bonds in their indexes.

Matt Barnes allowed two runs in the bottom of the seventh though, and Boston lost 5-4. Kevan Smith kept motoring around third and headed for home, and Rutledge's throw beat him to the plate, but skipped away from catcher Christian Vazquez.

"We're just going to have to keep grinding it out", manager Rick Renteria said. "There was a lot of moving parts over on that side". Boston (27-23) dropped its second game in a row after winning the previous six.

Adrian Gonzalez's sacrifice fly and Utley's RBI double started the Dodgers' comeback in the third. The last time he went deep twice in a game?

Even though Sale was primarily known for his strong pitching during his time in Chicago, he also ruffled feathers and caused controversy at times.

Chris Sale may very well have a Hall of Fame career, so be happy, White Sox fans. "We're hopeful that hitters are soon in his schedule", Farrell said. If you do that for a handful of more years, well, he's going to put himself in position to possibly be a Hall of Famer someday, if he stays healthy, and I think he will.

After Sale's exit, White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana (2-6, 4.82 ERA) inherited the role of staff ace.

After tossing a scoreless first frame, Quintana's struggles in his recent starts came back to haunt him as his execution and command of his pitches escaped him once again.
