#Red Sox Game Summary (May 30) Fire Sale

#RedSox Game Summary (May 30) Fire Sale. Chris Sale had a tough outing in his first game against his old club, and they seemed unimpressed by his new position, hammering him for several innings. But it didn’t matter, as the Red Sox had something close to a historic night of homers and extra base hits to put the White Sox away. Chris’s game was horrible, especially by his standards, going just 5 innings, and giving up 6 runs on 10 hits and 2 walks, though with 9 punch-outs. The hits included a double by Avisaíl García and a home run by Todd Frazier. But Boston was able to jump all over Chicago starter José Quintana, knocking him out of the 3rd inning with 2 out after getting 10 hits, including 2 homers by Devan Marrero, and also by Mookie Betts, and doubles by Sam Travis and Jackie Bradley, Jr. But the White Sox put on a hitting display as well, including a double by Leury García and a homer by Tim Anderson, both off Blaine Boyer. In the end, Chicago had 7 runs on 14 walks and 3 walks. They went 14-for-40, slightly better than the Red Sox. But Boston had 13 runs on 16 hits and 4 walks. The Red Sox scored first, then the White Sox came back, and they seemed to go back and forth until the 5th, when a 3 run inning established the Boston lead for good. Every Boston batter got a hit except Hanley Ramirez and Sandy Leon, Sam Travis went 3-for-4. In addition to Marrero and Betts, JBJ, Xander Bogaerts, and Mitch Moreland also homered in the game. So, despite a rough start, Chris Sale got the run support he needed, and the win. Boston beat Chicago, 13-7, at (the ridiculously named) Guaranteed Rate Field. Record: 28-23. Game 51/111.
