Sale gets warm reception in return to Chicago with Red Sox

On Baseball: No accounting for Price's behavior
What do the Red Sox need to fix so far this season?

Jose Quintana hasn't quite lived up to that billing so far this season, going 2-6 with a 4.82 ERA in 10 starts so far this season.

Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale is looking forward to his first appearance against his old team.

Todd Frazier hit a 2 run homer for the White Sox and Jose Abreu added a 2 run single. Verlander, who threw 116 pitches over seven innings, gave up one run on six hits, struck out five and walked one.

Utley finished a homer shy of the cycle as the Dodgers won their season-high sixth straight game. "Two curveballs that he catches out in front of the strike zone and we needed them".

"We text up and back all the time", Sale said. He now sits tied at third in the league in saves with 13, boasting a highly impressive 0.83 ERA from the bullpen. Thanks to abysmal fielding at third base (13 errors), manager John Farrell recently handed him the job, figuring that even if the defensive wizard didn't hit a lick, he'd at least keep the Red Sox from giving away runs. So, with two out and a runner on second base in the second inning, Quintana figured he could sneak a curveball by him. Following a Sandy Leon strikeout, Jackie Bradley would knock Travis in with a double and later score on a home run from Deven Marrero.

Last season, Cooper convinced Sale to change the way he pitches.

Davidson and Aaron Judge of the Yankees are the only AL rookies leading their team in home runs this season.

The battle of the "Sox" will be decided on Wednesday night as Boston's Drew Pomeranz (4-3 4.70 ERA) will battle Chicago's Mike Pelfrey (2-4 4.41 ERA).

Sale almost finished this one without a W despite being given seven runs to work with in the early going. Quintana is coming off his worst outing of the year, allowing 8 runs in 4.1 innings at Arizona.

USA 'on the wrong side of history' on climate
The pair met soon after the top US diplomat in China resigned, allegedly in protest of Trump's Paris decision. It's increasingly looking like it's not America alone on the world stage - it's the President.


Trump likely to withdraw U.S. from Paris climate accord, senior official says
But the targets were voluntary, meaning the USA and the almost 200 other nations in the agreement could alter their commitments. Trump thinks that the climate change was something invented by the Chinese to stop USA companies from making a lot of money.

"At the end of the day it's a game". Moreland knocked a two-run homer off Juan Minaya in the ninth to make it 13-7.

Marrero, who couldn't recall the last time he homered twice in game, connected on two Quintana curveballs. Stanton is 14-for-29 with three homers since being moved to the No. 2 hole in the batting order.

Marcell Ozuna also homered for the Marlins, whose modest winning streak is their longest since mid-April.

Bogaerts would hit a solo home run in the eighth - Boston's fifth of the day - to give the Red Sox an 11-6 lead to Blaine Boyer, who came on for the bottom half. And so what if his seven strikeouts through three innings last night put him on pace to set the single-game record?

Dustin McGowan (2-0) replaced Nicolino and allowed one run in three innings. One of those games was a one hitter against the Seattle Mariners.

After tossing a scoreless first frame, Quintana's struggles in his recent starts came back to haunt him as his execution and command of his pitches escaped him once again.

Chris Sale will have a lot of emotions heading into today's game.

Skoglund, a 2014 third-round draft pick out of Central Florida, struck out five and walked one. He also complained during spring training about new limits on Adam LaRoche's son hanging around the clubhouse, a management decision that prompted LaRoche to retire.
