Can't help but wonder if pitching Sale in relief the other day was a mistake.

Looks like he lost a few mph on fastball and cant locate it

At least the fastball is near the zone. His breaking ball has a better chance of picking a guy off at 1st than being called a strike
I'm bitter.

Finally the inning ends. The offense needs to really get going, because pitching is not a strength for us this game

I agree..we need to heat up our bats

The really sad thing is that this is the only starter I trust. This series could get ugly

They must have called him out for taking off the left hand, because he clearly beat the tag.

I'll take it either way, though

Sale looked pretty good to end the inning, I think we'll probably put him out there to start the 4th (but keep him on a very, very short leash. No more 2-0 counts)

Yep- it looked he lost contact with base for split second!

I agree, Cora will not Boone or Grady Sale if he looks shaky again

Not a surprise. He's a great pitcher (and has been for a long time)

I hope so too. If he can get through 5 we have a chance

Edit: another inning is a lot to ask when you have 86 pitches, though

He looked on just there! Our O needs to figure out V- he has barely thrown any pitches

Looks like 4 is all we'll get from Sale. We need Kelly to go 2 or 3
