Chris Sale reached a rather impressive milestone Tuesday night.

Sale struck out his 2,000th batter during the Boston Red Sox’s 7-6 win over the Cleveland Indians, becoming the fastest pitcher to do so in Major League Baseball history. Manager Alex Cora had plenty of positive things to say about the southpaw’s performance and what he was able to accomplish.

To hear more from Cora, check out the “Red Sox Extra Innings Live” video above, presented by W.B. Mason.
