    And Sale now has 17 Ks on 108 pitches through 7. Sox are batting now, but it's probably worth switching over if you can get the game.

    Sale is out.

    Sale won't get the loss, but has there ever been a game where the starting pitcher struck out 17+ batters and his team lost? I know Mark Prior once struck out 16 and the Cubs lost (I was there), but not sure about 17.

    EDIT: A quick Google search shows it has happened nine other times, including twice each to Randy Johnson and Nolan Ryan. It also happened to Carlton, Spahn and Feller

    He absolutely destroyed those balls. That bat speed is incredible.

    Looks like the Rockies technically set a record last night. They struck out 21 times in nine innings, which would have been a record if the game ended there. The record for an extra inning game is 26. The Rockies wound up with 24, which is tied for second most.

    I’m waiting for pitchers to adjust to this swing from your heels batting approach.

    Pitchers are blowing their arms out left and right throwing every pitch as hard as they can. Plus, I read someplace that every MPH of pitch speed equals 8 feet of distance on a home run.

    I’m almost waiting for the new era of knuckleballers and junk ballers.

    Yesterday, the Indians tied the record for most games without a triple to start the season. Marlins looking to tie it tonight.
