Red Sox's Chris Sale: Strikes out 10 in Friday's loss

Sale allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out 10 over seven innings in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Athletics.

Sale had double-digit strikeouts for an eighth straight start, but if his hitters aren't doing their job, a pitcher can strike out 27 and it will do him no good. Boston went 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left 10 men on base. That's been a recurring theme for the left-hander, who pitched well enough for the win, as he's done in all nine of his starts. His next turn through the rotation is due Wednesday at home against Texas.
