Scherzer currently leads baseball with an astounding 35.3% strikeout rate. That's the third-best mark in the game's history, although it's barely a league-leading clip this season since Sale is also punching guys out at an all-time great rate.

Red Sox vs. Twins lineup: Chris Young bats cleanup against the lefty

Red Sox vs. Twins lineup: Chris Young bats cleanup against the lefty

Boston will counter with a southpaw of their own, while Sam Travis gets the start at first base. The Red Sox (42-34) look to build the momentum of a Chris Sale Day victory when they take on the Twins (39-35) tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN). Drew Pomeranz (4.07 ERA), who has been Boston’s second-best starter over the last month, goes for the Sox, while lefty long-ball-allower extraordinaire Hector Santiago (5.26 ERA) goes for Minny. The platoon is on with the southpaw on the mound and, with Hanley Ramirez out of the lineup, Chris Young will serve as DH and bat cleanup. Sam Travis...

Sale Nabs Tenth Win, Red Sox Top Twinkies, 4-1

Sale Nabs Tenth Win, Red Sox Top Twinkies, 4-1

(AP Photo)Chris Sale was—once again—the guy they traded for. The lanky lefty went 6.1 innings, striking out nine and giving up one earned run. His teammates scored enough to provide victory—with Mitch Moreland swatting his third straight first-at-bat home run in the 4-1 win. Dustin Pedroia had two hits and drove in a key insurance run late, while Mookie Betts was 2-4 and scored two. The over-worked bullpen was solid again, going 2.2 innings and blanking the Twins without giving up a single hit. Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 21st save—lowering his ERA to 1.07.

Sale has a chance to strike out the most batters of any Red Sox pitcher in team history prior to the All-Star break. Only Roger Clemens (186) and Pedro Martinez (184) have thrown more.

Red Sox 4, Twins 1: Chris Sale did Chris Sale things

Ho hum, another dominant start from Chris Sale The last time Chris Sale faced off against the Twins, it was billed as a pitchers duel between him and Ervin Santana. As it turned out, it was the worst start of Sale’s season to that point but the Red Sox gave him plenty of run support and completely bucked the expectations of the pitching matchup. This time around, it was another great matchup, this time with the young rising star Jose Berrios taking the mound against Sale. The batters had the expected amount of trouble in this one, but fortunately Sale was great enough to rise above the...

Chris Sale strikes out nine, Mitch Moreland homers in Boston Red Sox win over Minnesota Twins

Dustin Pedroia ripped an RBI single in the seventh inning and Mitch Moreland added a run two batters later with a deep sacrifice fly to center. That, combined with a strong start from Chris Sale, a pick-me-up from the bullpen and an early surge over budding ace Jose Berrios, was enough Boston, which is now 42-34 this season.

Today’s links look at Chris Sale’s impact on the Red Sox, Pablo Sandoval’s contract, and Eduardo Rodriguez’ recovery. You can’t possibly overstate Chris Sale’s impact on the Red Sox. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Pablo Sandoval is on the disabled list, and Boston probably doesn’t need to rush him back. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald) Is Sandoval’s contract the worst of all time? (Tim Britton; Providence Journal) As if we needed another sign for a strong future for Andrew Benintendi, his ability to break out of his major slump bodes extremely well. (Cam Ellis; BP...

Red Sox "Sale" Into First Place With 8-3 Pasting Of KC

(AP Photo)Finally, Chris Sale got some run support. The lefty's teammates put up eight runs on thirteen hits—allowing them to move into sole possession of first place in the AL East. The 8-3 win was paced by Xander Bogaerts (2-5, 2 RBIs), Sandy Leon (2-4, 2 RBIs) and Deven Marrero (2-2, RBI). All this offense was done with three top contributors on the bench—Dustin Pedroia, Andrew Benintendi and Mitch Moreland. For Sale's part, he once set down 19 Royals in a row—until a blip in the ninth. He finished with 8.1 innings, three earned runs and just four hits. In his ninth win of 2017, he...
