Another strong outing from Chris Sale - even if it was only the Orioles - and another home run from J.D. Martinez (pictured) - again, even if it was only the Orioles - helped the Red Sox beat Baltimore 7-2 Saturday afternoon.

Sale went six innings for his third win of the year (3-7), allowing both Baltimore runs on six hits and a walk. He struck out 10, the eighth time in his last nine outings that he has reached double digits in K's.
Boston took a 3-0 lead in the top of the sixth on an RBI double by Xander Bogaerts and a run-scoring single by Brock Holt, who came in on an error.
The Red Sox added a run in the seventh on Martinez's 16th home run of the year, and then plated three more in the ninth to complete the final margin of victory.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
