Chris Sale allowed two runs and struck out eight in 5 1/3 innings on Friday night as the Red Sox beat the Yankees 5-4 in Game 1 of the ALDS.

Fantasy Impact:

Sale walked two and allowed five hits. He hit 96 mph on the first pitch of the night but mainly threw off speed pitches over the course of his outing. He left with a 5-0 lead that the bullpen was barely able to hold on to. If needed Sale will pitch Game of this series next Thursday night.
