Red Sox score 7 in 7th to beat Rangers 9-4

Dustin Pedroia waved home the tiebreaking run on a wild pitch, then singled in two more during Boston's seven-run seventh inning on Wednesday night and the Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 9-4 for their third straight victory.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Red Sox 9, Rangers 4: Record? The only record that matters to Chris Sale is the Red Sox's win-loss record, and after a seven-run seventh-inning rally Wednesday night, they won their third game in a row for first time since a four-game run April 15-18. Sale's run of consecutive starts with at least 10 strikeouts ended at eight, tying a record he already shared with Pedro Martinez. He fanned six batters, a season-low, and gave up four runs (three earned) in 7.1 innings.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Chris Sale winds up settling for merely tying his own streak of eight consecutive starts with at least 10 strikeouts. Sale did it in 2015 with the White Sox, too. Pedro Martinez also did it, in 1999 with the Red Sox.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The home run hit by Texas 1B Mike Napoli on Wednesday night was his 17th against the Red Sox as a member of the Angels, Indians or Rangers.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Asked after his last start about his double-digit strikeout streak, Chris Sale said he'd "rather be 8-0 with no punchouts." So, never mind that Sale has five Ks through five innings after getting Rougned Odor waving at a slider. Sale also gave up two runs in the frame, including a solo homer by Mike Napoli, and trails 3-1 against the Rangers.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

One walk, one unearned run, no strikeouts in the fourth inning for Chris Sale, who nevertheless still hasn't allowed a hit. Red Sox and Rangers tied, 1-1, with Sale stuck on four strikeouts in as many innings.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Nine up, nine down for Chris Sale, who racks up his fourth strikeout with a 96 mph fastball to Robinson Chirinos to end the third inning. Sale looked like he thought he had Joey Gallo struck out a couple of times on sliders that apparently missed.

Chris Sale gets Rougned Odor to swing through a nasty, dirt-diving slider, then elevates a 96-mph heater to get Mike Napoli swinging. Three strikeouts through two innings.
