Red Sox's Sale aims for strikeout record vs. Rangers

(TSX / STATS) -- BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox, who scored 23 runs in their past two games after threatening to fall below .500, have their ace facing the Texas Rangers in the second game of a three-game series Wednesday night.

"We've got Chris Sale going tomorrow, and that's another boost for momentum to sustain it in our favor," Boston manager John Farrell said Tuesday after the Red Sox's 11-6 victory over the Rangers. "He's been outstanding.

"Whether we do (it) against (Texas starter Martin) Perez tomorrow, we'll find out, but I think that we were able to take the lead and maintain it and it allowed some guys to just go up and relax and take their quality at-bats -- and there were a number of them here tonight."
