LHP Chris Sale 13-4, 2.70 ERA, 216K
RHP Austin Pruitt 6-2, 5.65 ERA, 37K
Chris Sale was crushed in his previous outing last week. He was forced out of the game after five innings due to the fact he allowed a season-high, seven runs over eight hits. He also struck-out a season low of five batters.
One thing to look forward to tonight is the fact that Chris Sale has averaged 13.38 K/9 against the Rays so far this season.
Rookie, Austin Pruitt has made two appearances in games against Boston this season, both coming from a bullpen spot. He pitched a combined 3.1 innings with five runs allowed over 11 hits. Not pretty.
