Bats Overshadow Aces as Red Sox Beat White Sox

Boston Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval prepares for an at-bat during a game against the Baltimore Orioles in Baltimore Friday

Astros 8, Orioles 4: Baltimore had a 3-0 lead at the end of an inning and a half, but it was all Houston after that. With the roster and talent there, it shouldn't be surprising that the Boston Red Sox are now one of the best teams at batting across the league this far into the season.

A case could be made using basic numbers, advanced metrics or the eye test that Chris Sale is the best pitcher to have worn a White Sox uniform. He and three relievers combined for 19 strikeouts.

The most positive element of Chris Sale's homecoming in Chicago, a 13-7 Red Sox win, is an indication that in the future, he might have a real offense that can hit home runs behind him. He was injured in the first inning when he collided with White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu while trying to beat out an infield hit. "Two curveballs that he catches out in front of the strike zone and we needed them".

"This is where I called home for a long time". Quintana's ERA has creeped up over his last three starts from 3.92 to 4.82 to 5.60. However, with three home runs in the last week, he is making a case for playing time if Sandoval should falter.

Stanton hit a two-run homer, his 14th, in a five-run third. They also fell out of first place in the NL West, dropping a half-game behind the streaking Dodgers. The 2012 Cy Young Award victor went just 3.2 innings in his most recent rehab start while surrendering six runs (three earned) on seven hits and one walk.

Right-hander Matt Barnes (3-2) drew the loss for the Red Sox after allowing Cabrera's go-ahead single in the seventh.

What sets Sale apart, though, is the stage of his career during which he was moved.

Buxton had two hits and drove in a run. It was his shortest outing since he lasted one inning against the New York Yankees on September 2, 2013.

PITTSBURGH - Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray pitched a four-hitter in his first career complete game. Yet he still managed to pitch pretty damn well in his first start since October 7, with the exception of a few walks and one bad pitch to a guy who is 10-for-30 lifetime off him. Jose Quintana got his butt kicked again, giving up 7 runs in 2.2 innings.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Elvis Andrus collected five RBIs in his final two at-bats as Texas rallied past Tampa Bay.

NEW YORK - Jay Bruce's RBI single in the 12th inning lifted New York over Milwaukee.

Wily Peralta (5-4) pitched a flawless 11th in his fourth relief outing since he was dropped from Milwaukee's rotation in mid-May, but then allowed a single to pinch hitter T.J. Rivera leading off the 12th. He is winless in his past four starts. Moreland knocked a two-run homer off Juan Minaya in the ninth to make it 13-7. The Rockies have lost three of their past four games. So, with two out and a runner on second base in the second inning, Quintana figured he could sneak a curveball by him.

All six Toronto runs came on homers. The Angels had six hits in the inning, including Pujols' eighth home run of the season. He has been deemed healthy enough to return, although there's little evidence from either of his minor league rehab starts to suggest he's ready to return to form.

MIAMI - Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna homered to lead Miami over Philadelphia.

But he also spoke highly of his time in Boston, where he said Red Sox fans generously have accepted him while he has pitched to a 2.34 ERA and 101 strikeouts in 73 innings.

Both starting pitchers departed with injuries.

Meanwhile, Chicago (24-26) is hovering below.500 in the first year of a long-term rebuilding project.
