Chris Sale’s NSFW quote perfectly sums up Red Sox loss to the Orioles

The Boston Red Sox lost again on Tuesday night, this time to the Baltimore Orioles. Chris Sale wasn’t happy after the fact.

The Red Sox are faltering when they need a late-season surge. Boston has fallen out of the first Wild Card spot, and as of this writing would be heading to the Bronx to face the Yankees in a winner-take-all scenario.

Boston would rather be hosting that game, and they’re lucky New York is doing them a favor by beating Toronto on Tuesday.

Chris Sale didn’t start in the Yankees series — which ended in a New York sweep — drawing some ire from Sox faithful. He was called upon against the O’s on Tuesday, and ultimately was pulled after giving up a game-tying home run to Ryan Mountcastle. He threw a fit on the mound after the fact.

Red Sox: Chris Sale blew his chance to end skid

Both of Boston’s best pitchers — Nathan Eovaldi and Sale — lost their last time out. The Red Sox pitching staff isn’t necessarily deep, so they need the top-tier to deliver when called upon. Sale knows he screwed up, and lamented on that after the fact in his postgame comments.

Fair enough.

You can’t say this start didn’t matter to Sale, as he clearly understood the gravity of the moment. Hopefully for his sake, he’ll have a chance at redemption.

Boston’s lineup didn’t do the pitching staff any favors, however, considering they managed just two runs against a woefully bad Orioles rotation.

Overall, this team just has to be better.
