BALTIMORE -- Chris Sale gave the Red Sox two things they needed -- he went deep into Wednesday's game with the Orioles and pitched well.
Sale went six-plus innings and gave up one run on two hits while Mookie Betts hit his first homer since returning from the disabled list as the Red Sox defeated the Orioles, 5-1, Wednesday afternoon.
The left-hander ended a personal three-start losing streak and improved to 6-4 on the year. Sale struck out nine and walked four. Home-plate umpire Brian Knight tossed Sale as he was leaving the field after Sale made remarks to Knight.
