5/6 Pitchers vs Hitters Matchups – Game 4 Finale in Arlington

It’s Sale Day and I’m praying that the Baseball Gods help deter the Sox bats from going silent and bullpen having a meltdown. Sale is actually ranked 9th in the AL in strikeouts. The eight pitchers above him, only Gerritt Cole and Justin Verlander, have lower ERAs than Sale’s 2.11 mark.

Boston’s old buddy, Doug Fister, is on the mound for Texas. While he has had a good start to the 2018 campaign (2.88 ERA in 5 starts), not surprisingly is inability to stay in the game for too long. His recent 6.2 inning win against the Indians, was the first start that he was able to exceed 5 innings of work. Mookie & company should be able to make sure he has another early exit to the showers.
