Sale ties strikeout record, White Sox edge Cardinals in 11th

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Chris Sale matched a major league record by striking out at least 10 in eight straight starts, and the Chicago White Sox outlasted the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 in 11 innings Tuesday night on a home run by Tyler Flowers.

Sale struck out 12 in eight innings. The lefty tied the mark set by Pedro Martinez in 1999 with Boston. The White Sox ace had fanned every hitter in the St. Louis lineup by the end of the sixth. He is 0-2 with two no-decisions during the last four games of his streak, getting only four runs of support.

Sale helped himself, getting his first career hit and scoring the first run for the White Sox. Flowers hit his sixth homer with two outs in the 11th. He connected off Miguel Socolovich (2-1), pitching for the first time in nine days.

Daniel Webb (1-0) got the win and David Robertson earned his 16th save in 20 chances. Randal Grichuk homered for the Cardinals, whose nine-game home winning streak ended.
