Boston's Chris Sale ties record with 8th straight 10 K game

Boston's Chris Sale ties record with 8th straight 10 K game

It was a battle of one-upmanship for the A's in the fifth inning of Saturday's 8-3 win over the Boston Red Sox. The 24-year-old tossed eight scoreless innings - allowing only an infield single with two outs in the eighth - in his one prior start against the Athletics, which came September 4 in Oakland.

Boston set the tone early by scoring two runs in the first inning off A's starter Andrew Triggs, and pounded the A's bullpen, as every member of the Red Sox lineup collected at least one hit in the 15-hit barrage.

Eduardo Rodriguez put in seven quality innings of work, giving a taxed bullpen much-needed respite.

They sit third in the AL East at 22-21.

Here's how it all went down.

The Red Sox added their second run when former A's outfielder, Chris Young, popped one up behind second base that landed for a hit when Jed Lowrie lost the ball in the sun and oddly, Mark Canha was playing too deep while running with less than meaningful conviction to make a play himself.

"I've got to do as I'm told", Price said.

An inning later it was 6-3 as Mitch Moreland homered for the third time in the series, this time with a man no.

- Rodriguez was brilliant for most of his outing. Rodriguez has pitched most of this season on the road and has more than held his own.

Oakland cut Boston's lead to 2-1 in the second when Pinder lined a two-out double to left-center field and scored on Josh Phegley's single to center.

Auernheimer, known online as "weev", said in Sunday's post that he knew the shooting suspect and both of the shooting victims. According to police, Arthurs told the people he was holding hostage that he was upset about the US bombing Muslim countries.

Orioles 7, Blue Jays 5: Welington Castillo hit a go-ahead home run for the second consecutive game to lead Baltimore past Toronto at sold-out Camden Yards.

With the game tied in the bottom of the ninth, Bradley climbed the wall to rob a walkoff homer.

But this should be how the Red Sox play baseball in 2017. "What Mookie was able to do a couple times in right field, those aren't easy plays".

The Oakland Athletics have used the long ball to get the best of the visiting Boston Red Sox and will aim for a four-game sweep when the teams cap their series Sunday afternoon. Pedroia advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on Andrew Benintendi's sacrifice fly.

Pedroia then tried to join the stolen base brigade but was thrown out at second. "We're not a.500 team", Dustin Pedroia told reporters in Oakland. The lack of defense behind him, responsible for three errors, far less so, though he did take responsibility for allowing the errors to hurt.

"The inning I'm most frustrated with is after Pinder gave us that two-run home run that gave us the lead and then I gave it right back there in the fifth", Triggs said.

- The Red Sox scored again in the eighth inning when Jackie Bradley Jr. led off the frame with a double to left field.

Oakland almost won it in the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs and none on when Ryon Healy sent a deep drive to center off Boston closer Craig Kimbrel, but center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. made a leaping catch at the wall, robbing Healy of a walk-off homer.

Vazquez, sitting nearby in the locker room, jumped in and said, "I'm getting you for sure".
