Chris Sale (pictured) set a personal career high with 17 strikeouts in one of his most dominant starts of 2019. He was nothing short of brilliant, striking out the first six Rockies he faced and eight of the first nine. He tied Pedro Martinez for second most strikeouts in a Red Sox uniform, just three behind Roger Clemens.

Boston took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning on Michael Chavis's seventh home run of the year, a long blast over the Monster.

J.D. Martinez and Rafael Devers each hit solo shots in the third to give Boston a 3-0 lead.

Colorado scored in the seventh on a two-run homer by Nolan Arenado and took a 4-3 on Charlie Blackmon's two-run shot in the eighth off reliever Brandon Workman.

Mitch Moreland tied the game in the eighth with a run-scoring single.

The loss snapped a five-game Boston winning streak.
