Chris Sale Says Masahiro Tanaka ‘Out-Pitched’ Him In Red Sox’s 3-0 Loss

The Boston Red Sox’s bats couldn’t come alive Thursday night in a 3-0 loss to the New York Yankees after a solid outing by both starting pitchers.

Chris Sale recorded his fourth consecutive start with 10 or more strikeouts for the Red Sox, and Masahiro Tanaka pitched a complete game for the Yankees, allowing just three hits.

After the game, Sale gave credit to Tanaka for out-pitching him, and Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts said it’s frustrating not being able to score runs for Boston’s pitchers.

To hear more from Sale and Bogaerts, check out the video above from “NESN Sports Today,” presented by People’s United Bank.
