Sonny Gray (1-2) yielded four hits and two runs while walking three in six innings to snap a streak of three straight starts in which he didn't get out of the fifth inning. They had fallen behind 1-0 but actually went into the first intermission tied thanks to a goal by defenseman Charlie McAvoy, but the second period proved to be much like the first, with Rask bailing out his teammates with save after save until Tyler Johnson scored on the power play to make it 2-1, and in the third Odrej Palat increased the lead to 3-1.

Sale is 1-1 with a 3.50 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP, five walks and 22 strikeouts over 18 innings in his last three starts. A throwing error by catcher Tucker Barnhart let in one run, and Santana doubled over Billy Hamilton's head in center field for a 6-5 lead.
