    Chris Sale fell to 0-1, allowing seven runs on nine hits and one walk in 5.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Houston Astros 8-2 on Thursday. Sale ended the game with a 12.60 ERA and 2.00 WHIP on the postseason.

    Impact

    Sale, the major league strikeout leader, was knocked around in his postseason debut. We expect him to be better should he get another chance in Game 5. After fanning 308 in the regular season, he struck out six. But he allowed three homers and three doubles, marking just the second time in his career that he's given up six extra-base hits.

    Sale will start Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday against the Astros, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Impact

    Sale showed some signs of fatigue in the second half, but overall was very impressive in his first year with the Red Sox. The 28-year-old compiled a 2.90 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 308 strikeouts in 214.1 innings during the regular season.

    News

    Sale will not start Sunday and will instead be saved to pitch Game 1 of the ALDS against the Astros next Thursday.

    Impact

    With the Red Sox wrapping up the AL East on Saturday, they will go with Hector Velazquez in the season finale and save their ace for the postseason. Sale will be pitching on nine days rest, and the Red Sox may be tempted to bring him back on short rest for Game 4, given the recent struggles of No. 4 starter Eduardo Rodriguez.

    News

    Sale will start Sunday's game against the Astros only if the Red Sox haven't clinched the division following Saturday's results, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

    Impact

    Boston's magic number going into Saturday is just one, so that means a Boston win or a Yankees loss would secure the AL East division title for the Red Sox. If both of those results go against Boston, Sale will take the mound to try and avoid the club having to play a one-game playoff for the division title Monday.
