Chris Sale Shuts Down Astros, Continues Dominant Streak

The White Sox lefty ace has been incredible recently, striking out batters at a ridiculous rate.

While Carlos Correa may have garnered some of the attention during the Astros-White Sox game, nobody forgot that Chris Sale was on the mound. Sale, who has progressed into one of the MLB’s top pitchers, has been on a roll recently, allowing only one run in his past 22.2 innings of work. Almost more impressively, he has recorded 10+ strikeouts in five of his past six starts, with a season-high 14 punch-outs yesterday. He went eight strong innings, allowing just one run over the game and lowering his season ERA to 3.04.

Kansas City Royals Dominating All Star Voting

However, the Kansas City Royals are shocking the baseball world right now, with an astounding seven players leading in starting roles. Seven starters would be an all time record if they are able to keep up these vote leads. On top of that, Omar Infante only trails Astros second baseman Jose Altuve by around 160,000 votes, and Alex Rios is fourth in the outfielder race (Mike Trout is in second for voting).
