Chris Sale wasn't quite as sharp as he usually is, but pitched well enough to win with two earned runs in five innings. He struck out nine, but issued four walks in a start for the first time since August 31, 2016 as a member of the White Sox. Sale threw 102 pitches in the outing, just 60 for strikes.
