But even by his lofty standards, Sale was magnificent on Tuesday.

The big league record for strikeouts in nine innings is 20, done five times.

"I love this game and to be able to have a chance at doing something like that is special", Sale said.

The All-Star lefty sported his signature short-sleeves despite the 44-degree temperature at the start of the game and had a shutout through six innings. "At the end of the day- obviously you want a shot at it- but it's an easier pill to swallow knowing the circumstances and knowing who you've got coming out of the bullpen". Over his last three starts, Sale has struck out 41 batters against only one walk while giving up just three runs in 21 innings. Two other pitchers - Joe Cowley for the 1986 White Sox, Carlos Rodon for the 2016 White Sox - have begun outings with seven consecutive strikeouts.

Cora didn't bite and went to Brandon Workman, who allowed a double by Chris Iannetta and a two-run homer by Charlie Blackmon with two outs in the eighth to give Colorado its first lead at 4-3.

More information on Pedroia's timetable could be available Tuesday before the Red Sox open up a series with the Colorado Rockies.

Mike Dunn (1-0) got the win with one inning of scoreless relief and Wade Davis got his seventh save.

In fact, Chavis' second-inning homer was his seventh of the season, tying J.D. Martinez, Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts for the second-most singers hit this season.

Boston made it 4-all in the eighth on a pinch-hit single by Mitch Moreland. Martinez and Devers added solo homers in the third to put Boston up 3-0.

The Red Sox announced Monday that Pedroia has been recalled from his minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Portland due to "minor left knee soreness".

President Donald Trump shows off a Red Sox jersey presented to him during a ceremony welcoming the Boston Red Sox the 2018 World Series baseball champions to the White House, Thursday, May 9, 2019, in Washington. "He'll go out there and then take grounders and move around and we'll decide what we do next", Cora said.

Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (4-2, 4.53) has won two straight starts and three of his last four.
