BOSTON | Sale, Cora make early exits for Red Sox in ALCS Game 1
BOSTON— Red Sox ace Chris Sale and manager Alex Cora both made early exits in Game 1 of the AL Championship Series against the Houston Astros.
Sale lasted just four innings Saturday night, giving up two runs on one hit and four walks.
Cora wasn’t far behind the lanky left-hander going back to the clubhouse. The rookie manager was ejected in the bottom of the fifth inning with the game tied 2-2 after arguing a called third strike on Andrew Benintendi that ended Boston’s first rally of the game.
