Chris Sale. Getting it done. 👊

CHRIS SALE FINALLY GETS A WIN AT FENWAY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 372 DAYS
Just another 12 K day for @RedSox
pitcher Chris Sale. 🔥
Chris Sale mentioned Luis Tiant among those who gave him advice and support this week.
Chris Sale’s four-seam fastball averaged 91.9 mph and topped out at 96.7 mph, per Statcast. He recorded 20 swings-and-misses: eight on his slider, six on his changeup, four on his four-seam fastball and two on his two-seam fastball.
Chris Sale: “I’ve been as bad as I’ve ever been in my career and I’ve also had the best games I’ve ever had in my career this year. So it’s just one of those things that it’s more confusing than anything."
He cited 17 Ks vs. Rockies, complete-game shutout vs. KC as 2 of best game
Red Sox's Chris Sale: “I had a lot better feel for my changeup today. That’s something I really haven’t had all year. And I think I was able to actually use my changeup as an outpitch instead of more than just a show pitch."

Red Sox win, 5-0. They took three of four from Toronto. Baltimore up next.
Chris Sale threw six shutout innings for the #RedSox on Thursday in a 5-0 win over the Blue Jays at Fenway Park. https://t.co/ON14t6eEP0
Chris Sale: “Where I’ve been getting most of my problems is trying to overthrow it. It flattens out and obviously leaks back over the middle of the plate. I think in this game you start to realize it’s more commanding the pitches and working different tunnels of the strike zone."

5/14 vs. COL: 17 K’s, no decision

In a 5-0 win over the Blue Jays, Chris Sale and Mookie Betts showed what they - and, by extension, the Red Sox - are capable of. Nothing will have a bigger impact on the ‘19 Sox than whether their superstars live up to that billing https://t.co/f3MBeZNq0K
Chris Sale explained what was working for him in his dominant outing against the Blue Jays. https://t.co/G8I5UgeDBn
Con sus 12 ponches de hoy ante los Azulejos, Chris Sale suma 11 juegos de al menos 10 bateadores retirados por esa vía, se unió a Gerrit Cole como los lideres en MLB esta temporada.
Chris Sale won at Fenway Park today in the first time in over a calendar year and the Red Sox are still going to lose a half a game in the standings today. You really just hate to see it.
Una salida de calidad de Chris Sale, dejando en apenas dos imparables a Toronto, le asegura la serie a los @RedSox
Watching the Bos/Tor game, Chris Sale is on fire !!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Chris Sale will NOT be going to Puppy Circus! Not yet anyway. #GoRedSox
The Sox are paying Chris Sale $28M a year to just now get his first home win this season? DUDE WE'RE PAST THE FUCKING ALL STAR BREAK GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER
My prediction is that Chris Sale will be made the #RedSox closer sometime during the five year extension. If he can’t throw 96-97mph for more than one or two innings, he’ll take the John Smoltz route to extend his career.
Chris Sale -- 'There's nobody else to blame but myself. Glad to get this one out of the way. Now we can just focus on what's ahead.' #RedSox
Chris Sale and two relievers combined on a two-hitter Thursday for his first regular-season win at Fenway Park in more than a year. https://t.co/1eQHpkVTtU
It was nice to see Chris Sale was win at Fenway for the first time in over a year. Big step in the right direction as we chase the Rays
Chris Sale vuelve a ganar un partido en el Fenway Park tras poco más de un año en el triunfo de Boston 5-0 sobre Toronto; el abridor lució en el montículo al ponchar a 12 rivales en seis entradas de labor. https://t.co/ygdjNnjvWD
Hey Ray, Chris Sale was dropped in my league. Ws are most important. Should I drop any of these guys to pick him up? Castillo, Woodruff, Clevinger, Hendricks, Paxton. Thanks
Is it weird that I have only seen Chris Sale pitch twice and hes won both games at home. And it just so happens to be his most recent wins at home. A year apart? #goodluckcharm
Want worse news? Chris sale found his slider today. Uh oh spaghetti o’s.
