Slow Sales Pitch Confuses Yankees!

May 13 at New York


Toon Squad Update:
Brain
Chris Sale is WAY smart.

Short Take: Chris Sale makes short work of the Yankees after an early offensive explosion by the Sox.

Chris Sale's new pitch to contact scheme seems to be paying off well. A few days ago a hitter on a previous opponent commented on how much better and more confident he seemed to be. The plan being to use less pitches and go deeper into games is paying off well and tonight it all came together against the hapless Yankees from New York. Chris got lots of early help from the offense which had an early offensive explosion to give Chris a big lead. Sale in turn yielded only a lone solo homer and the Sox went on to win 7-1.

Yeah this one was all about Chris Sale and how deep he got inside the Yankees' collective heads. Sale's off-speed pitches seemed to baffle the Yankees and most of the time they didn't seem to know what to do. Often in an attempt not to fall behind they swung at the first pitch that looked hitable and that led to a few very short innings. Sale used a grand total of 5 pitches in the third and had used 88 through 8 innings. Aside from the solo homerun, Sale yielded 5 total hits thanks in part to some more solid defense in the outfield by Jackson and Eaton, but really it was all about Chris tonight. He retired 12 in a row entering the ninth before yielding a lead off single and a one-out double. Even then the outcome was never in doubt as the next man lined out to center and a weak grounder to short ended the game that really was over 2 hours earlier.

Offensively the Sox lit the scoreboard up early with a big 2-out bases loaded single from Abreu in the second to give the Sox an early 3-0 lead. Then they tacked on four more in the third when Eaton had a 2-out double of his own to plate two followed by a Jimmy Rollins' 2-run BOMB! into the second deck in right field (yes you read that correctly) to close out the scoring early. The Yankees already had their single run and after that neither team really threatened much as the game seemed to settle into a cruise-control mode.

I love it when a plan comes together and tonight the new improved Chris Sale had all the pieces click into place after the offense gave him a big early lead. His breaking and off-speed pitches were simply devastating and the end result was a big easy win for our boys. Sale's 8-0 start matches Jon Garland's best in club history from 2005. I can all but guarantee Jon never made it look this easy. Tomorrow Jose Quintana takes the mound. he's been on a major roll himself and hopefully he can keep it going and win his 5th in a row and 6th of the season. Game time is at 12:05 in Chicago and the plan will remain the same as it is every day... try to take over the World (Series)!
