The Boston Red Sox squandered another dominant Chris Sale outing on Tuesday night, falling 6-2 to the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.
Sale struck out 11 over seven innings in a no-decision, allowing just two runs on three hits and a walk. But with the game tied 2-2 after seven innings, reliever Robby Scott allowed two runs in just a third of an inning to take the loss.
Twins third baseman Eduardo Escobar drove in the go-ahead runs with a double in the eighth inning, exacerbated by an error by center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. Escobar also hit a two-run double off Sale in his previous at-bat to total three RBIs on the night.
Up Next: The Red Sox and Twins continue their three-game series on Wednesday, with David Price (8-4, 3.76 ERA) taking on Lance Lynn (4-5, 4.98 ERA).
