Blue Jays stumped by Sale in loss to Red Sox

Boston Red Sox Christian Vazquez

Reds 14, Mets 4: Scott Schebler hit a grand slam and tied a career high with five RBIs, and Adam Duvall added a three-run shot in the ninth inning to lift Cincinnati past NY.

Eduardo Nunez also homered for Boston (74-57) and Xander Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland had an RBI apiece as the Red Sox extended their division lead to 3 1/2 games over the New York Yankees. He took a one-hitter into the eighth inning but was pulled after allowing consecutive base hits to begin the inning. "Just try to go out there in the top half and throw up a zero and give us a chance to win. As a competitor, that's what you want to do, you want to get back out there and right the ship". Sale would last seven-plus innings against Toronto and allow just three hits while striking out 11.

In only inning 1,290 of his career, Chris Sale reached 1,500 strikeouts in his career.

And the accomplishments didn't stop there. Kerry Wood held the record, getting to 1,500 strikeouts in 1,303 innings.

"That's pretty insane. This game's been around a long time", Sale told reporters in reaction to learning of this acheivment. To do that, it's cool. I like Porcello to bounce back here so I'll take the Red Sox for the win.

Sale, 28, has been the ace of the Red Sox's pitching staff and a leading candidate for the American League Cy Young Award.

Anderson's night ended after an infield single by Andrew Benintendi. Former Toronto outfielder Rajai Davis stole two bases and scored twice.

Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless ninth for his 31st save of the season.

He also voiced concern over allegations that staff members of global organisations had participated in the attacks. Myanmar's Rohingya are the world's largest stateless minority and endure severe restrictions on their movements.

Toronto lost the first two games of the series to left-handers Drew Pomeranz and Sale. The Blue Jays (61-71), who have won just twice in the last 11 games, fell to 3-9 against the Red Sox this season and 1-8 versus Boston at Rogers Centre. He signed a minor-league deal with Toronto two weeks ago.

Gibbons was impressed with Anderson's work.

"I still think I'm really good pitcher when I'm healthy and able to go out there and do what I know I'm capable of", Anderson added. "I'm not going to overpower anybody for the most part, so if I can be quick and efficient and keep the defense on its toes and get some good plays behind me, that's kind of the key to my game".

Hanley Ramirez stroked his 20th home run of the season off Dominic Leone in the seventh to provide Boston more breathing room.

Jose Bautista and Steve Pearce both struck out three times against Sale, who was pulled for right-hander Addison Reed with two on and none out in the eighth.

Gibbons rued that missed opportunity after the game.

The throw met Miguel Montero on the base path in front of home plate, allowing the catcher to easily tag Nunez and prevent a first-inning lead for Boston. "But that was our only shot". They had used 13 starters in 2013, 2002 and 1979.
