Sale struggles, but Marrero hits 2 HRs to lift Red Sox

What do the Red Sox need to fix so far this season?

Boston Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval prepares for an at-bat during a game against the Baltimore Orioles in Baltimore Friday

David Price made his 2017 debut on Monday and went 5 innings for Boston, allowing 3 runs.

Wearing a green camouflage Red Sox hat for Memorial Day, Sale told reporters Monday that he harbors "no hard feelings" toward White Sox management for sending him to Boston in a trade that netted four highly regarded prospects, including baseball's top prospect Yoan Moncada.

Chris Sale will have a lot of emotions heading into today's game.

The left-hander received a warm welcome Monday in his return to Chicago after his trade to Boston last winter.

Sale (6-2) gave up six runs and 10 hits - both season highs - over five innings in his first appearance against the White Sox. He's allowed to have a bad day, though, I suppose. "I think we're ready to go on a rehab assignment here soon", he said. The Red Sox will attempt to take the series and try to gain a game on the Yankees in the AL East standings.

"A real freakish play there at first base", Farrell said. "So we're grateful he's in our uniform". He entered Tuesday's big-time pitching matchup against former teammate Jose Quintana with a 2.34 ERA and a league-leading 101 strikeouts. George Springer homered and Marwin Gonzalez and Yuli Gurriel each hit RBI doubles during the Astros' six-run second inning. He said he's gunning for me. Why not? We wouldn't talk about the (Bryce Harper fight with Hunter Strickland) deal anymore. "I can't wait to see you guys.' So I'm excited to play against him". The shift in philosophy is what prompted the White Sox to trade Sale to the Red Sox on December 6 for a package of top prospects that included second baseman Yoan Moncada, right-hander Michael Kopech and outfielder Luis Alexander Basabe.

Parker Bridwell (1-0) gave up three runs and six hits in six-plus innings in his first major league start.

D'backs 3, Pirates 0: Arizona's Robbie Ray won on a four-hitter, striking out 10 with no walks in his first complete game in the majors.

The White Sox' No. 1 starter again looked like No. 2, this time failing to get out of inning No. 3. Everybody who knows him knows that.

"It was pretty awesome to go out there and compete and have some big hits out there tonight", he said after the game. Berrios gave up five hits and four walks in five innings, the shortest of his four starts this year.

Chris Sale may very well have a Hall of Fame career, so be happy, White Sox fans.

Said Sale: "D-Mo had one of the best nights".

"More so than anything, I just want to let everyone know that I appreciated my time here", he said. "Without a lot of people in this building I wouldn't be sitting here right now, that's for sure".

Sale couldn't keep it together, though. In one of the most asinine comments I've heard in a sports interview, Adam Eaton called 12 year old Drake LaRoche one of the team leaders.

"A little of me will be [nervous], but I think I'm more looking forward to this opportunity than any other emotion just because it's fun", Sale said of the upcoming game, per Scott Lauber of ESPN.
