2 hours agoBoston Red Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale won six innings on Friday, allowing four races, of which only two were won, with a 4-3 loss to Houston. Sale hit five and walked two at the same time as he earned his 10th home run of the year. The southpaw played only 56 of the 89 strike pitches, including only seven swing attacks. The Astros benefited from Boston's errors in the second and fourth innings, which led them to an early lead of 3-0. It was not a bad start at all, but it was a return to the ground for the 30-year-old later to have posted a 69:11 K: BB with just 10 wins in their six previous games. His record is 1-6, but five of those losses occurred in the first month of the season when the Sox were fighting as a team. He will host the Indians on Wednesday, where he will have the chance to return to double-digit strikeouts and should be a popular DFS option.
