    Chris Sale again aims for strikeout supremacy

    ESPN Stats & Information Chris Sale will get his second chance to set a modern-era baseball record Wednesday night when he takes the mound for the Boston Red Sox against the Texas Rangers. Sale has struck out 10 or more batters in eight consecutive starts, which is tied for the longest such streak in a season since 1900, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Sale also did so in the 2015 season. With a chance to run his streak to nine games on July 6, 2015, he pitched a complete game against the Toronto Blue Jays -- but got “only” six strikeouts in a 108-pitch effort.

Really, the only interesting part of this tweet is, “We’ve absolutely remained focused on adding and winning.” The Blue Jays placed Anthony Alford on the disabled list with a left hamate (known in English as wrist) fracture. In a corresponding move, Dwight Smith Jr. was, once again, recalled from triple-A Buffalo. The most obvious

    Orioles Still Want Connaughton

    The Portland Trail Blazers were not the first team in professional sports to draft Pat Connaughton. Before Portland (via the Brooklyn Nets) took the Notre Dame shooting guard with the 41st pick in the 2015 NBA draft, the Baltimore Orioles took the Notre Dame pitcher in the fourth round of the 2014 MLB draft. On Monday, Connaughton appeared on MLB Network Radio and said that he was “not going to unrealistically chase a dream if it appears that dream is getting farther and farther away.” According to Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun, the Orioles would be happy to welcome their pitching prospect. Baltimore executive vice president Dan Duquette said of Connaughton: The Orioles believe he has a good
