If only for a moment, there was worry about Chris Sale in Boston after he failed to tally a win in his first two starts in a Red Sox uniform.

But after the way he pitched Saturday, much of that worry is gone.

The former White Sox ace tossed seven innings, gave up just three hitsand struck out 12 Rays on his way to his first win since his blockbuster trade to Boston, an eventual 2-1 Red Sox victory.

This was Sale’s 21st 12-strikeout game since the 2012 season — first among all pitchers over that span. Clayton Kershaw has the next most with 13.

Stud of the night

Jose Ramirez’s good start to the season just got better. The Indians’ utility man went 4 for 4 and reached base all five times he came to the plate in Cleveland’s 13-6 win over Detroit. More notably,he hit two three-run home runs in the game and drove in six runs. He also had a double and a single.

North Korea blasts US strikes on Syria, says justify nukes: state media

  North Korea blasts US strikes on Syria, says justify nukes: state media North Korea has said the US missile strikes on Syria were an "intolerable act of aggression" that "proves a million times over" that strengthening its nuclear programme was the right choice, state media reported Saturday. The comments were Pyongyang's first since US President Donald Trump ordered the strikes on an air base in the war-wracked country Thursday in retaliation for an apparent chemical attack.

They are part of Red Sox Nation, too, and they all know how much the Red Sox , odds on to win the AL East, are counting on Chris Sale to be fill one of the most And struck out Jake Marisnick with a changeup in the second inning that fell out of the air as if the wind had slam-dunked that one , too.

He was dominant Saturday in his first victory with Boston, striking out 12 over seven innings in a 2- 1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. “ Chris Sale : dominant, strong, any adjective you want to attach to it,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said.

Dud of the night

You may not see a start like Carlos Martinez had Saturday again this season. While he did have some very good numbers, including 11 strikeouts and just four hits allowed, he walked eight batters in five innings pitched. Yes, eight. Had he had just an ounce more of control the Cardinals likely win a game they lost just 3-2.

Highlight

Giancarlo Stanton was at it again Saturday with this 111.9 mph laser that put the Marlins up for good in the eighth inning over the Mets.

What's next

Pirates (5-6) atCubs (6-5), 2:20 p.m. ET — This would be one to watch if just for the rivalry, but considering the fact that both team's aces, Jameson Taillon and Jon Lester, are on the mound for their respective teams, and the Pirates are going for a sweep of the defending champions, that makes this one even more watchable.
