Braves’ Chris Sale Reacts Humorously to Tying MLB Wins Record

Chris Sale of the Atlanta Braves has tied Seth Lugo of the Kansas City Royals for the most wins in MLB this season, achieving his 11th victory in a 3-0 game against the San Francisco Giants. This win ties him for the most wins in the National League and across the majors.

Despite his history of injuries, particularly during his time with the Boston Red Sox, Sale’s 11 wins are impressive. He humorously remarked to the media, “Is that more wins than I’ve gotten in the last five years combined?” Sale’s 11 wins equal his total from the last three seasons, and it’s his highest since 2018 when he had 12 wins with the Red Sox. He’s on track to surpass this, barring further injuries.

In addition to his wins, Sale boasts a 2.71 ERA, 127 strikeouts, and a 0.91 WHIP, ranking him among the top pitchers this season. Sale expressed his desire to participate in the All-Star game but emphasized staying focused on the current season. Braves manager Brian Snitker praised Sale’s performance, highlighting his competitive spirit and the positive impact on the team.

Sale might not be the only Braves player at the All-Star game, with other standout performers like pitchers Reynaldo Lopez and Max Fried, and designated hitter Marcell Ozuna potentially joining him. Sale, who pitched six innings against the Giants with nine strikeouts and only one earned run, acknowledged the support from his teammates, including run support and a strong bullpen.

Despite the Braves’ current pitching injuries, Snitker believes the situation is becoming manageable. The team’s success is bolstered by dynamic offensive players like Matt Olson, Austin Riley, Ozzie Albies, and Jared Kelenic, who has excelled in the leadoff spot. With a 47-37 record, the Braves are second in the NL East and aim to continue their strong performance in upcoming games.
