Hall of Famer Chris Sale Making All-Star Pitch

From ESPN's MLB "Sweet Spot"


Chris Sale continues to make All-Star pitch. Sale started last year's All-Star Game with the White Sox. After allowing one run in 6 1/3 innings during a 4-1 victory over the Twins on Monday, he is certainly the favorite to start for the AL once again, this time as a member of the Red Sox. The last pitcher to start two years in a row was Randy Johnson in 2000 and 2001 for the Diamondbacks. Others to do it in the divisional era (since 1969): Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Dave Stieb and Jim Palmer.
