Chris Sale did just about everything he could to help the Boston Red Sox grab a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday night.
Sale hurled eight innings, only allowing one run on four hits with 10 strikeouts. He even blasted a double in his first game hitting in the 2017 season.
But unfortunately for Sale, his efforts weren’t enough, as the Phillies narrowly topped the Sox 1-0.
After the game, Red Sox manager John Farrell gushed over Sale’s all-around performance, both on the hill and at the plate.
