Sale couldn’t find the plate and threw only 2 of his first 11 pitches for strikes. He threw 23 of the 46 pitches in the first inningĀ  for strikes. After the first inning things were much better but the offense decided to take the night off.

In his first 5 starts Sale averaged 92.35, 91.60, 93.44, 94.35, 94.26 (last to first start) mph on his two-seamer. So, today velocity was down. The game started 1 hour later than scheduled due to a rain-delay, and the air was pretty dump. Sale, also, threw 19 sliders tonight. Number of sliders in his first 5 starts: 23, 28, 49, 18, 31 (last to first start).
