Sports Feed previews Chris Sale's return to Chicago with the Red Sox

The Sox hit a season-high six home runs - their most since 2013, when they went deep eight times against the Tigers in a game started by Rick Porcello.

Melky Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBIs, and the Chicago White Sox rallied for a 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox on Monday afternoon. The Red Sox, who are coming off a 6-1 home stand, travel to the south side of Chicago.

The left-hander is expected to start Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox, where he spent the first seven years of his career before being traded this offseason.

Pedroia bounced to first in the first inning and Jose Abreu slid into the bag for the out.

The Red Sox then pulled Pedroia in the second with a sprained wrist, and manager John Farrell said the 2008 AL MVP was headed back to Boston for tests.

"More so than anything, I just want to let everyone know that I appreciated my time here", Sale said.

"I was actually looking forward to tonight", Sale said. Sale left the game after a three-up, three-down fifth inning.

Boston almost tied the game in the 8th, but a drive by Mitch Moreland hooked foul in right field.




"It's going to be weird seeing Chris out there, " Hahn said on "The Mully and Hanley Show" Tuesday morning. The former AL Cy Young Award victor gave up two hits, including Cabrera's three-run homer, walked two and hit two batters. Which then unfortunately leads us to the reigning AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello. There would've been something he did wrong, some way he underperformed on the unreasonable expectations bestowed upon him when he signed a $217 million contract previous year.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Eric Skoglund permitted two hits and no runs while pitching into the seventh inning in his major league debut as Kansas City blanked Detroit.

Third base coach Nick Capra motioned for Smith to head for home.

"I don't think it will be a hard week", White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. "There was a lot of moving parts over on that side".

The loss is Boston's second straight and drops them to 27-23 on the season. Mookie Betts decided the bottom of the lineup couldn't have all the fun and went back-to-back with Marrero and just like that the Red Sox had a 4-0 lead for their ace. The battle of Sale vs. Jose Quintana was a dud.

We have some American League action on tap Wednesday, as the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox conclude their three game set. They pried away the Red Sox's No. 1 prospect (infielder Yoan Moncada) and top pitching hopeful (right-hander Michael Kopech) among a package of four minor leaguers. Sale is scheduled to start Tuesday. "We're hopeful that hitters are soon in his schedule", Farrell said. He once yelled at White Sox President Kenny Williams during an altercation over Adam LaRoche's departure from the team, and before a 2016 game the hurler was sent home after he destroyed the team's throwback jerseys with a pair of scissors in the clubhouse. "If we can get that back on track, I think Q's going to be who he is, which is a very effective major league pitcher". Shields threw 45 pitches during his most recent bullpen session and said he felt strong.

Sale (5-2, 2.34 ERA) is 4-0 with a 3.57 ERA in five May starts.
