Chris Sale faces Reds, attempting to end Red Sox's skid

The Boston Red Sox like what they've been getting from Chris Sale lately. The left-hander now gets an opportunity to end the team's three-game losing streak when he starts against the visiting Cincinnati Reds on Thursday night.

Sale, an All-Star every year from 2012 to 2018, has battled injuries during the last three seasons that limited him to 48 1/3 innings on the mound during that stretch, but he has looked like his former self during his past five starts. He went 4-0 with a 2.23 ERA in those five outings, striking out 35 and walking four in 32 1/3 innings.

"I feel like I'm trending in a good direction," Sale said following his latest start, when he pitched five innings of one-run ball during a 7-2 triumph against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. "I've been around here too long to feel like I'm on top of a mountain and all, and I've still got a lot of work to do."
