Sale shuts down Tigers in Boston's 9-1 victory

DETROIT (AP) Chris Sale is drawing comparisons from his manager to another dominant left-hander.

"He's reminding me a lot of Randy - Randy Johnson," Boston manager Alex Cora said. "The thing with Randy, it looked like he was always grinding. With (Sale) it looks effortless right now."

Sale struck out nine in six scoreless innings, and Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a three-run homer to lift the Red Sox to a 9-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. Sale allowed two hits, lowered his ERA to an American League-best 2.13 and won his sixth straight decision.
