Can Blue Jays Touch Unhittable Sale?

Chris Sale continues to prove that he is one of the best pitchers in baseball, as the leftie has given up just four hits and one unearned run in his past two starts (16.0 innings). Sale will take to the mound for the Chicago White Sox when they take on the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, a team that Sale has posted a career 2.57 ERA against.

Shark Bites
  • Jose Abreu is 4-for-9 with three home runs and five RBIs lifetime against R.A. Dickey.
  • The UNDER is 8-1 in the White Sox past nine games.
  • The only member of the Blue Jays lineup to ever hit a home run off Chris Sale is Josh Donaldson.

The Jays will counter Sale with R.A. Dickey, with the knuckballer coming off his longest outing of the season on Wednesday. Dickey has a 6.10 ERA through his first four starts and has only pitched through six complete innings once. That’s not a good sign for a team whose bullpen has a collective 3.70 ERA and five losses to their names.

The White Sox enter Tuesday as winners of six of their past seven outings, while holding their opponents to just 2.4 runs per game in that span. In Sale’s four starts this season, the White Sox are 4-0 and have outscored their opponents 14-7.
