The Red Sox are the first team in baseball to get to 70 wins. A dominant Chris Sale and an awakening offense gave the Sox a 9-1 Sunday afternoon victory over the Detroit Tigers.

After rain delayed the game for 95 minutes, Chris Sale took the hill and he was superb again. Six innings, no runs, two hits, did not walk anyone and struck out nine.

Sale's league-leading ERA is 2.13. He has an 11-4 record.

Jackie Bradley Jr. had the blow at the plate - a 3-run home run. Andrew Benintendi drove in two runs. Steve Pearce and Xander Bogaerts both had two hits.

The Sox improve to 70-31 and move on to Baltimore for a series starting Monday with live coverage on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.
