1. First look at Sale. The Orioles go up against left-hander Chris Sale in a Red Sox jersey for the first time tonight, and he has been exceptional through five starts. Somehow, he has a 1-2 record despite averaging about one earned run, 10 strikeouts and one walk in 7 2/3 innings per start this season. He has struck out at least 10 and pitched at least seven innings in every start, and has not allowed more than two earned runs in a single game. Sale, who made his major league debut against the Orioles at age 21 in 2010, is 2-2 with a 3.41 ERA in 11 career appearances (five starts) against Baltimore. It is his fourth-highest ERA against an opponent he has faced at least 10 times.
