MLB roundup: Sale reaches 300 Ks in Red Sox's win

(TSX / STATS) -- BALTIMORE -- Chris Sale became the first American League pitcher with 300 strikeouts in a season since Pedro Martinez in 1999 and the Boston Red Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Baltimore Orioles with a 9-0 victory on Wednesday night.

Sale (17-7) struck out 13 and tied a career high with his 17th victory. He allowed only four hits and did not walk a batter over eight innings. Sale joins Martinez as only the second pitcher in Red Sox history with 300 strikeouts.

Mookie Betts and Deven Marrero homered for first-place Boston, which has won 11 of 14 and remained three games ahead of the New York Yankes in the AL East. Dustin Pedroia snapped an 0-for-18 skid with a two-run double in the eighth.
