Red Sox Beat O’s 6-2 [VIDEO]
Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale took the mound on Tuesday night, May 2nd and proved once again that he is the ace of the team, as the Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-2. Sale may have shown Major League Baseball that the Red Sox is his team after throwing close to 100 miles a hour behind Manny Machado in the 1st inning and then proceeding to strike him out!
Sale pitched 8 innings allowing just 3 hits, 2 runs, both earned and struck out 11 while walking 2. This was Sale's 5th double-digit strikeout game. He now leads the majors with 63 strikeouts.
Hanley Ramirez was 2-4 with 2 homers, both solo shots leading off in the 4th and 6th innings. He has now hit 4 homers in his last 4 games, 3 of which have been estimated to have traveled over 440 feet.
Mitch Moreland was 2-4 with another double, his major league leading 13th double. He leads the Red Sox with 15 extra base hits.
Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless 9th inning, picking up his AL leading 9th save of the season.
The Boston Red Sox hit into a 6-4-3 triple play in one of the oddest plays you'll ever see.
The Boston Red Sox have placed Steven Wright on the 10 day disabled list with a knee injury. They have recalled Kyle Kendrick, who will pitch on Thursday in Wright's place.
The Red Sox and Orioles play the 3rd game of the 4 game series Wednesday night with the pregame starting at 6:25 and 1st pitch at 7:10 on AM 1370 WDEA. Drew Pomeranz takes the mound for the Red Sox.
