Chris Sale‘s early season struggles are gone and the Red Sox star is officially back — so says Pedro Martinez, who tells TMZ Sports Sale’s 17-strikeout game Tuesday reminded him of him!!!
“Brought back some memories,” Pedro says.
In case you missed it … Sale got off to a BRUTAL start to this season — he allowed 17 earned runs in his first 4 games — and a whole lot of people wondered if the 30-year-old had anything left.
But Sale’s lit it up in his last 3 outings — with 10, 14 and 17 K performances — and now Pedro is officially back on the 7-time All-Star’s bandwagon.
In fact, Pedro tells us he couldn’t help but think about his own career when Chris was mowing through the Rockies on Tuesday night … ’cause he’s the last Sox pitcher before Sale to strike out 17!
And if ya don’t remember how the Boston legend did that, here are the highlights … you’re welcome.
