Red Sox Ace Will Make History Tuesday


Chris Sale – he’s been everything as advertised for the Boston Red Sox, and on Tuesday, he’ll join the All-Star Game record books.

The southpaw will become the first pitcher to start back-to-back Midsummer Classics for two different teams.

Last season Sale got the nod as a member of the Chicago White Sox and tossed an inning, allowed one hit and one run (a two-out home run to the Chicago Cubs’ Kris Bryant), while striking out one.

This will be the 28-year-old’s sixth trip to the All-Star Game as a member of the American League.

With the start, Sale becomes the first Red Sox since Derek Lowe in 2002 to open the game on the mound.


Sale sits at 11-4 with a 2.75 ERA and 178 strikeouts over 127.7 innings at the break.

He will be opposed by Washington Nationals right-hander Max Scherzer (10-5, 2.10 ERA, 173 SO, 128.1 IP).

The All-Star Game gets underway tomorrow at 8 p.m. at Marlins’ Park.

Do We Really Need All-Star Games Anymore? 

It is safe to say last weekend’s event re-ignited the long-running criticisms of the NBA All-Star Game, which has historically been an event where most will only play at about half of their usual intensity to let their fellow players shine. Five players cracked the 30-point barrier, and Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves scored an eye-popping 50 points.
