Boston left-hander Chris Sale struck out five in four innings in his spring debut, but the Miami Marlins rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Red Sox on Friday in Jupiter, Fla.

Sale allowed one run and two hits during his 58-pitch stint. He blanked the Marlins through the first three innings before Derek Dietrich doubled to lead off the fourth and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Justin Bour.
