In Chicago return, Sale earns a warm reception

What do the Red Sox need to fix so far this season?

Mama said there would be games like these and for Boston Red Sox lefty Chris Sale, Tuesday night in Chicago was one of those games.

Boston's rotation outside of Chris Sale and Eduardo Rodriguez has been shaky-at-best. Unfortunately, it didn't quite work out that way as he looked human for the first time this season. So, with two out and a runner on second base in the second inning, Quintana figured he could sneak a curveball by him. After a quick first out, the bottom of the lineup turned it on starting with a single by Sam Travis. One of his two hits allowed was a three-run home run to Melky Cabrera. Yes, you read that correctly. Bradley has hit just.207 with five home runs and 13 RBI.

Any series with Boston and Chicago is always going to be interesting and fun to watch. However, if anyone can keep his emotions in check, it's probably Sale. Price, the 2012 American League Cy Young victor, allowed nine runs (six earned) and 12 hits, struck out eight and walked two in 5 2/3 innings in two rehab starts for Triple-A Pawtucket.

It figures to be an unusual night for the All-Star pitcher and Cy Young candidate as switches sides on the South Side for the first time in his career.

Luckily, he had Marrero on his team. Enrique Hernandez tied it at 3 with a single, and Paul DeJong's throwing error on the same play scored Utley to give the Dodgers a 4-3 lead. Rather than kill the rally without a run, Marrero launched another one into the bleachers for his second homer of the day.

Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Russell Martin also homered - all in the four-run fourth inning for the Blue Jays. However, the Red Sox struggled out of the gates and while they have played better of late they still trailed the New York Yankees by three games for top spot in the AL East heading in to this week.

No one was more frustrated by the Sox' failure to win while Sale was a White Sox than Sale himself, whose outlandish cutting of those throwback uniforms was his way of saying marketing mattered more than winning. He only struck out three batters too, which goes against everything baseball in the teens is supposed to be about.

OAS debates crisis in Venezuela
At least 62 people have been killed in the two month-long confrontation and another 1,100 people have been injured. Nomura Securities said it also bought about $100m worth of the bonds last week, according to Reuters reports.

But the notion that Marrero would hit two home runs? He entered Tuesday's big-time pitching matchup against former teammate Jose Quintana with a 2.34 ERA and a league-leading 101 strikeouts.

He'd hand it off to Heath Hembree, who is no longer rocking the very bad cornrows he displayed back at Fenway against the Mariners.

Andrus' two-out drive deep into the visiting bullpen ended a stretch of five scoreless innings from the Tampa Bay bullpen after Matt Andriese left in the second with a mild groin strain.

SAN DIEGO - Austin Hedges hit a two-run homer and a two-run double, and Hunter Renfroe added a tiebreaking, two-run double in a four-run fifth inning as San Diego handed Chicago its fifth straight loss.

Sale's antics seemed disruptive to the White Sox.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Eric Skoglund permitted two hits and no runs while pitching into the seventh inning in his major league debut as Kansas City blanked Detroit.

John Farrell gave the ball to Adam LaRoche brothel-cop partner Blaine Boyer in the eighth, and the team Boyer once called evil in the biblical sense bedeviled him for four hits over two-thirds of an inning, including a solo shot by Tim Anderson to start it. He'd get out of the eighth without allowing another run and shut things down in the ninth. With nowhere else to turn, the Red Sox summoned the career.189 hitter.
