Chris Sale shut the door on the Los Angeles Dodgers’ World Series hopes Sunday night.
Aside from winning his first career World Series championship, Sale also joined a list of pitchers who all accomplished a rare, special feat.
So rare, in fact, it hadn’t been done in 73 years.
Sale started Game 1 of the World Series at Fenway Park, tossing four innings with seven strikeouts in the Red Sox’s 8-4 win. He didn’t see any action again until Game 5, but he certainly made it count.
