Sale appears for the first time since 2019

Driven by Chris Sale’s first major league appearance in more than two years, the Boston Red Sox hit five home runs and thrashed the Baltimore Orioles 16-2 on Saturday night, who suffered their 10th straight loss.

Sale, 32, completed his comeback after undergoing surgery on Tommy John. He worked five innings, during which he allowed a pair of runs, on consecutive home runs by Austin Hays and Trey Mancini in the third inning.

The lanky left-hander particularly relied on his accurate slider, during an effort that included eight strikeouts and no walks.

Rafael Devers put Boston’s attack on the fast track, firing a three-run homer in the first inning off Puerto Rican Jorge López (3-13).

JD Martinez hit another three-lap home run and Bobby Dalbec added a solo club during a seven-run attack in the fifth act, just after Sale left to a roaring cheer.

Dalbec hit his second solo home run an inning later. Hunter Renfroe followed suit in the eighth inning.

For the Orioles, the Dominicans Pedro Severino 4-2, Maikel Franco 4-0, Jorge Mateo 4-1. Venezuelan Anthony Santander 3-0.

For the Red Sox, Puerto Ricans Kiké Hernández 3-2 with four runs scored, Christian Vázquez 4-0. Mexican Alex Verdugo 5-4 with three runs scored and one RBI. The Panamanian Jonathan Araúz 1-0. The Dominicans Devers 3-2 with one scored and four RBIs, Franchy Cordero 1-0. (AP)
