Chris Sale has been a bright spot for the Red Sox since rejoining the team from Tommy John surgery. The lefty is looking for his third win of the season against the Twins on Thursday night.
Sale was dominant against the Twins over the course of the first two innings. The dominant left-hander struck out four while surrendering zero hits heading into the third inning.
IMMACULATE INNING FOR CHRIS SALE!

Sale would mow down the Twins in order and he would do so by throwing an immaculate inning.
On his 3rd start, 2 years after having Tommy John Surgery Chris freaking Sale throws an immaculate inning.

He would get Twins Nick Gordon to strike out swinging to begin the inning. Twins shortstop Andrelton Simmons would strike out swinging. Sale would then get Rob Refsnyder to go down swinging for his third strike out of the inning.
Chris Sale’s third time throwing an immaculate inning with the Red Sox
The 32-year-old would throw nine pitches, all for strikes for the immaculate inning. This was not the first time that Sale has completed such feat. The last Red Sox pitcher to throw an immaculate inning was Sale who did that against the Orioles and Royals and 2019 and now the Twins on Thursday.
The last three immaculate innings thrown by Red Sox pitchers have been recorded by Chris Sale:
5/8/19 at BAL (7th inn.)
6/5/19 at KC (8th inn.)
Tonight vs. MIN (3rd inn.)

This was the first immaculate inning throw at Fenway Park since Pedro Martinez threw one back in 2002 against the Mariners.
