Only the 5th complete game one hitter by a Sox pitcher in the last 23 years. First since the "immortal" Zach Stewart did it against the Twins in September 2011.

Saw this fun fact on twitter. Chris Sale had 8 ER April 13 in Cleveland and now 10 ER in his other 7 starts this season combined

Sale pitching like we know he can. Thankfully we had him tonight, or else it could've been another broken record.

FJ Jr and I watched Sale warming up in the bullpen, and he looked sharp. Really popping the ball in there. Then my sister-in-law said "no-hitter" before the first pitch was thrown. It almost came true.

Best Sox game I've been to in quite some time.

Hope he can stay healthy and productive and the Sox figure out a way to build a great team around him.

Wow, Sale must be good if even Lip can't find something to dislike about him.

You have one of the best 1-2 rotation punches in baseball with Sale and Peavy. What at shame this might be another season where gold pitching goes to waste.

If Danks comes back and pitches to his potential then 1-3 could be really solid. Will the offense come around though? Gotta hope so.

That's because we are deplorable at pretty much every other aspect - from pitching to baserunning to defense. A shame, indeed. The pitching has been superb.

A real gem by Sale, and Alexei had a pretty good game too (I'll overlook the error in the 9th).

I too am concerned about Konerko; he looks pretty bad at the plate right now.

Tank walked twice today - that's 4 walks since he got back. Amazing.

I assume that it was because CJ Wilson is a tough lefty, and not because Venture suddenly had a wave of inspiration to bench him against righties, too.

Yes, sheer domination by Sale, with a masterpiece. But, was I the only one who had a shudder of fear that he'd lose a heartbreaker 1-0 as soon as the perfecto was broken up?
Nice to see some 2-out RBIs for a change, even though the Sox had already stranded scads on the bases to that point, along with the usual pathetic hitting with RISP through the first six innings.

I was having visions of Harvey Haddix even before Trout's hit.
