August 13 2018 6:00 AM

Chris Sale returned from the disabled list and threw five scoreless innings in the Boston Red Sox's 4-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.

Red Sox ace Sale struck out 12 and surrendered just one hit in the MLB clash on Sunday.

Sale improved to 12-4 and dropped his ERA to 1.97 with the victory. He was originally placed on the DL with left shoulder inflammation on July 31.

Steve Pearce hit a solo home run in the first inning to give Boston an early lead.

The Red Sox added a run in the third off an RBI double by J.D. Martinez and tacked on two more in the ninth to secure the win.

Orioles starter Alex Cobb was charged with just one earned run in seven innings pitched, but he picked up the loss and fell to 3-15 for the year.

Boston moved to 85-35 with the victory. The Red Sox have won four in a row and 10 of their last 11.



CC Sabathia threw six scoreless innings and struck out seven in the New York Yankees' 7-2 win over the Texas Rangers.

Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt drove in three runs and scored two more in his team's 9-2 victory against the Cincinnati Reds.

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak went 0-for-three with two strikeouts in a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.



Chicago White Sox center fielder Adam Engel timed his jump perfectly and robbed Cleveland Indians first baseman Yonder Alonso of a home run in the team's 9-7 defeat.
