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

Pedroia had played five games with Portland on the rehab assignment, going 4 for 16.

Chris Sale is really good at pitching. The last before Sale to pull off this feat was Max Scherzer in 2016.

The visit from the Red Sox was also notable for several team members, including manager Alex Cora, last year's MVP Mookie Betts, and pitcher Hector Velazquez snubbing the offer of meeting the president.

Sale went seven innings, allowing two runs on a two-run homer by Nolan Arenado in the seventh.

Sale's previous career-high was 15, which he had accomplished on four occasions. Sale struck out his first six batters, one shy of an American League record.

It seems like yesterday that almost all of Red Sox Nation was in a state of panic over Boston's horrendous start to the season.

The Red Sox tied it in the eighth, but Reynolds hit the game-winning RBI single off Ryan Brasier in the 11th inning.

In his last outing Wednesday against the Baltimore Orioles, Sale had 14 strikeouts in eight innings. He's the third Red Sox pitcher in the live ball era (since 1920) to do so, joining Pedro Martinez, who did it three times, and Roger Clemens, who did it twice.
