Sale struck out 10, ending the game with a 1.19 ERA and 0.77 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The Red Sox have scored four runs total in Sale's five starts this season. Boston, which scored the most runs in baseball last season, has scored 13 total over its last seven games, losing five and getting shut out three times.
Apr. 20 2:31 PM PT3:31 PM MT4:31 PM CT5:31 PM ET17:31 ET21:31 GMT5:31 2:31 PM MST4:31 PM EST5:01 PM VEN1:31 UAE (+1)4:31 PM CT-Sale struck out 13 while yielding just four hits and a walk over eight scoreless and dominant innings Thursday in Toronto, though he left without a victory after the Blue Jays tied the game off Craig Kimbrel in the ninth.
Analysis: That's been the story of the season for Sale, who's been as good as advertised but owns just one win through his first four starts with a Red Sox team that's scored a paltry four runs with him on the mound. The former White Sox ace has now notched three straight double-digit strikeout efforts and takes a spectacular 0.91 ERA into Wednesday's matchup with the Yankees.

Analysis: Sale easily could have won all three of his starts, but the Red Sox have given him just three runs of support. He has 29 strikeouts in 21 2/3 innings, allowing three runs and 11 hits. Sale is next scheduled to start Thursday in Toronto, a place where he has a 1.80 ERA in four games.

Analysis: With 14 2/3 innings, two runs allowed and 17 strikeouts, Sale has been brilliant so far without a win to show for it.
Apr. 6 9:09 PM PT10:09 PM MT11:09 PM CT12:09 AM ET0:09 ET4:09 GMT12:09 9:09 PM MST11:09 PM EST11:39 PM VEN8:09 UAE11:09 PM CT-Sale allowed three hits, walked one and struck out seven over seven scoreless innings in Wednesday's 12-inning win over the Pirates.
Analysis: Sale, Boston's big offseason addition when he was acquired from the Chicago White Sox for a package of minor leaguers that included No. 1 prospect Yoan Moncada, received a standing ovation on his walk back to the dugout after the top of the seventh. His next start is scheduled for Monday in Detroit, and Sale went 1-2 with a 3.13 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP to go with 33 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings in five starts against the Tigers last season.
Mar. 6 2:31 PM PT3:31 PM MT4:31 PM CT5:31 PM ET17:31 ET22:31 GMT6:31 3:31 PM MST5:31 PM EST6:01 PM VEN2:31 UAE (+1)4:31 PM CT-Sale gave himself mixed reviews after his first spring training performance for the Boston Red Sox, an outing that ended a little earlier than originally planned.
Analysis: Boston manager John Farrell had Sale set to go three innings Monday against Houston. But after 37 pitches in two innings, Farrell decided the debut was over.
