MLB All-Star Game: Chris Sale named as Chicago White Sox representative
The Chicago White Sox will have one representative in this year’s MLB All-Star Game.
Starting pitcher Chris Sale will represent the White Sox in this year’s game and it’s very well deserved. Kansas City Royals manager named Sale to his All-Star team as the pitcher is in the middle of a historic run. Sale is looking to be the only pitcher to strikeout 10 batters in 9 straight starts.
Sale has been one of the only bright spots this season for a struggling White Sox team who enters Monday’s game at 36-43 and 10 games back of the Royals in the AL Central. Despite offensive woes, Sale has dominated on the mound for the White Sox. The left-hander is also the likely favorite to start the game for the American League.
The 26-year-old Sale is 6-4 with a 2.67 ERA in 15 starts this season. He also has 141 strikeouts in 103.1 innings.
The 2015 MLB All-Star Game will be played Tuesday, July 14 at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. The broadcast starts at 6:00 p.m. CST on FOX.
