It was Chris Sale's 27th pitch of the day in his final tune up exhibition game against the Houston Astros. And then it happened...

A line drive off the bat of J.D. Davis hit Sale on the hip and down he went.

The blood pressure of Red Sox Nation went way up.

Sale left the game but the news is good...x-rays were negative and it is being called a hip contusion (bruise) and he should be ok to start on opening day Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays...
