Chris Sale picks up the win, with Addison Reed getting the save. The game was not without other excitement as Alexei Ramirez was hit by a pitch which cleared both benches. Chris Sale had a pitch that went high and inside on a Detroit batter. Not having seen the issues take place, Chris would NEVER thrown a pitch to intentionally hit a batter. I just do not understand when things like this happen what in the world would that accomplish.
We had a good solid series. No one tried anything fancy that caused errors, it was good basic one out at a time ball. You can see patience in the batters box, making the pitcher work harder to get the out.
Pack your travel bag kids, its off to the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a three game series with the Phillies at Citizen Bank Park before heading home for the All Star break
See you on the field
