Red Sox blank Mariners behind Sale's epic outing (1:05)

Chris Sale's day is done after 13 strikeouts and 93 pitches in seven innings. He threw 71 for strikes and had a pitch clocked at 100.5 mph -- apparently the fastest pitch he's ever thrown as a starter. I'm not sure how the Mariners got four hits off him.

Chris Sale just missed an Immaculate Inning, getting the first eight strikes before throwing a ball, and then striking out the side on his 10th pitch of the fifth. He has 10 K's through five, just 60 pitches, and it doesn't feel like the Mariners are going to score off him today unless they run into something.

The Mariners and Red Sox have played four innings in 1 hours, 2 minutes, as Chris Sale and Marco Gonzales are trading a bunch of zeroes. Sale has 7 K's and 39 of 50 pitches for strikes, while Gonzales has allowed one hit and is at 43 of 63 pitches for strikes.

Haniger, Mariners cruise against Red Sox (1:02)
Devers' great play gets spoiled by Moreland's drop (0:36)

Interesting replay overturn in Boston: The Red Sox had apparently tied the game on a bases-loaded wild pitch, but the Mariners appealed and it was ruled Rafael Devers had swung at the pitch and the ball glanced off his foot, making it a dead ball and the runners forced to return to their bases. Devers then grounded out to end the inning.

Almost 300 campers were on hand, with the town's recreation department opening up the camp to residents free of charge. Chung was joined by teammates Nate Ebner, Ted Karras and David Jones.

Entering tonight, teams were 409-19 when leading by 5+ runs at any point in a game. The Mariners are in danger of blowing their second five-run lead in three games as the Red Sox have rallied from a 10-5 deficit to take a 12-10 lead. J.D. Martinez puts them ahead with a two-run single, his fourth hit of the game.

J.D. Martinez slams a 1-2 pitch over the center field fence for his 23rd home run to bring the Red Sox to 10-8. Forget Ichiro. Let's just get Nellie Cruz and Martinez in the Home Run Derby.
