Chris Sale's Struggles Against the Indians are Bad News for the Red Sox

Sale, who matched a season worst by allowing seven runs in his previous outing, has not allowed a run in 22 innings against the Blue Jays this season.

Cubs 4, Pirates 1 • Jake Arrieta continued his dominant second half with six strong innings, Ben Zobrist homered and Chicago won at Wrigley Field. We get it, we get it, you can strike people out!

The performance, which included three strikeouts, no walks and six hits, would have been worthy of a victory on most nights.

Pomeranz entered with an 11 1/3-inning scoreless streak but couldn't add to it against Toronto, surrendering a two-run double to Kendrys Morales in the first.

The Red Sox offense was mostly quiet against lefty Brett Anderson, and their difficulties hitting against lefties may become an issue if they can't figure it out before the postseason.

This has been a season filled with milestones for Sale. They took ridiculous swings like it was a Sunday softball game at Ryan Field in Charlestown. The last-place Blue Jays lost for the 10th time in 12 games. Kerry Wood held the record, getting to 1,500 strikeouts in 1,303 innings. The problem is, it isn't wise to ignore those two starts, as the Red Sox are likely to face the Indians to begin the 2017 MLB Playoffs.

"That's pretty crazy", Sale said of his 1,500-strikeout milestone.

Moreland also hit a two-run single in Boston's four-run eighth.

"They keep at you for sure", said Happ of the Red Sox.

"We definitely have a good feeling, obviously", said Sox starter Rick Porcello, who went 62⁄3 innings and allowed just one run.

Ramirez also reached the second deck with his homer, a leadoff shot off Happ in the fifth. To do that, it's cool.

The Red Sox, who lead the AL East by four games, are 29-27 within the division.

A lot can change between now and the end of the season, as a hot streak could push either team into first place in the AL or out of the playoff race entirely. The right-hander then got Steve Pearce to ground into a fielders choice, ending the threat.

Moreland is batting.346 (28 for 81) with 19 RBIs in his past 27 games.

The Blue Jays' chances of earning a wild-card berth were dead in the water long ago, even though mathematics still convinced some loyal fans that the club was still in the race.

The score remained tied until the seventh - with Moreland coming off the bench and belting his two-run round-tripper off of Blues Jays reliever Tom Koehler to give Boston the lead for good. But Boston starter Chris Sale was on the other side to prevent that from happening. Using an approach that is somewhat reminiscent of Mark Buehrle's skill set, he threw 5.2 innings against the Red Sox, holding them to one run on three hits. That represents his second lowest ERA against any team that he's faced at least 10 times, trailing only the 1.51 ERA he owns against the New York Yankees.
