Chris Sale sails through seven, Braves top Rangers 8-3

by Chris Schommer | Braves Correspondent | Sat, Apr 20th 8:49am EDT

Chris Sale delivered a solid performance, allowing three earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven over seven innings in Friday's 8-3 victory over the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact:

This outing was a step in the right direction for Sale, whose season ERA improved to 4.38 and WHIP tightened to 1.05. His ability to maintain a high strikeout rate (9.85 K/9) and a commendable strikeout-to-walk ratio (5.00) continues to make him a valuable asset in fantasy lineups, despite the slightly elevated ERA. Fantasy managers should feel confident keeping Sale active, expecting more quality starts like this one.
