Red Sox bullpen troubles results in extra-innings loss
At Fenway, the Red Sox couldn’t hold on after another dominant start from Chris Sale. Boston’s Matt Barnes inherited a 2-1 lead in the ninth and gave up a two-run, go-ahead single to Nomar Mazara. The Red Sox answered back, and tied the game on Brock Holt’s RBI single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. But, Barnes’ fourth blown save in eight opportunities wouldn’t be the only problematic outing from the Sox bullpen.
It goes without saying that Monday’s matchup wasn’t the only thing on the ballplayers’ minds. Red Sox great David Ortiz, who was shot in the Dominican Republic late Sunday night, was transferred to a Boston hospital to receive treatment. Ortiz is in stable condition, and the Red Sox held a moment of reflection for Big Papi before Monday’s game.
Stat of the day: Sale keeps striking out batters
Red Sox ace Chris Sale struck out 10 in seven innings of work in the loss to the Rangers. Sale now has eight starts this season where he has recorded 10-plus strikeouts — the most in MLB.
Sale has officially returned to his true self on the mound after an 0-6 start to the season. In his previous start, Sale notched his, and is only the second pitcher in MLB history to accomplish the feat twice in one season.
