Red Sox Rally Falls Short Against Tampa, Lose 5-4

Red Sox starter Pomeranz leaves games with unknown injury

Red Sox starter Pomeranz leaves games with unknown injury

Chris Sale took the Fenway Park mound Saturday with his new team in danger of falling back to the.500 mark for the first time since being 5-5.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Red Sox are -245 money line favorites versus the Rays, who have odds of +215 to pull off the upset in Boston.

Well, here we go again, without the flags (and I don't think banners from Sale's native Florida would have the same meaning).

Sale struck out 12 while pitching seven solid innings and Mookie Betts hit a two-run homer, leading the Red Sox to a 6-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday.

"He's certainly impacting the baseball", Boston manager John Farrell said.

The strikeout total is even more impressive when you consider that Sale is still acclimating to a new environment. Jackie Bradley Jr. had two hits, including his first double of the season, and Deven Marrero drove in two runs, helping the Red Sox to their 14th win in their last 19 games against the Rays. Meanwhile, left-hander Chris Sale struck out 12 batters in seven innings of work. "We've been playing a lot of baseball here", he said.

"Obviously today we saw a lot of power", Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said. Sale has now allowed no more than three runs in seven of his eight starts, and with the Red Sox searching for consistency throughout the rest of the rotation - not to mention on offense - having him as a safety blanket is a comforting feeling.

Harry Styles respects female fans' opinions on his new music
Some internet detectives are now theorizing that Harry Styles' new song " Two Ghosts " is about Swift, whom he dated in 2012. Styles paused and said: "I think it's pretty self explanatory", before nervously asking an on-hand colleague for help.

Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger (1-1) allowed three runs and three hits while walking five in 4 1/3 innings.

It was only the ninth homer Sale has ever given up to a left-handed batter, and then Kiermaier made it 10. The only other pitcher with as many as 85 strikeouts through his first eight starts with a team was Randy Johnson in 1998 with Houston.

"I was hot. I was (steamed) after that", said Sale. "Giving up home runs to lefties ... and, not only that, but I gave up the lead". "Not only that, I gave up the lead".

Max Kepler connected to give the Twins a home run in 14 straight games, their longest streak since 1988. He wasn't letting fastballs go, he pitched off his changeup, kind of pitched backwards.

"You've got a guy who's left-handed, throwing from that slot with a power fastball".

Today's game was moved up to 1:05 from a planned 7:10 start due to an ominous weather forecast that the Red Sox said calls for "sustained periods of rain to begin in the late-afternoon hours and continue into Sunday, with temperatures in the 40s". Sale is one shy of tying the major league record for most consecutive games with 10-plus strikeouts that he shares with Pedro Martinez. "Errors can happen, that type of thing".

WASHINGTON - Bryce Harper hit a two-run homer with two outs in the last of the ninth inning off Edubray Ramos as first-place Washington stormed back to beat Philadelphia. Farrell said INF Marco Hernandez (injured left shoulder) could need a procedure that would "likely" be season-ending. The 24-year-old gave up four runs (one earned), seven hits and two walks while fanning five in a five-inning loss to the Red Sox on April 17.
