#RedSox Game Summary (April 27) Blanked

#RedSox Game Summary (April 27) Blanked. Chris Sale dominated this game until the 9th inning, although he was trailing due to an unearned run in the 4th (the run was scored after the runner had advanced on a passed ball). He walked no one. He struck out 10. He had scattered 5 hits across 8 innings. John Farrell left him in for the 9th, and boom, boom boom, he gave up 3 straight singles by Aaron Hicks, Chase Headley, and Matt Holliday, and left with the score 2-0. The Yanks scored a third on a Starlin Castro single off Heath Hembree. Meanwhile, New York starter Masahiro Tanaka had the Red Sox completely under control, throwing a 3 hit complete game shutout. This is turning into a full-on slump for Boston. By the way, Bob Costas made a point of saying that Commissioner Manfred would be happy with the length of the game, which was 2 hours and 20 minutes. Maybe, but the Commish has been looking for more hits and runs to attract “casual fans”. Sorry, Robby boy. More hits and runs mean longer games. If you want them short, you need more pitching duels like this one. Or, as the Rolling Stones famously said, “You can’t always get what you want.” New York beat Boston, 3-0, at Fenway Park. Record: 11-10. Game 21/141.
