Newsclip®: [Sports] White Sox edge Astros, 2-1; Sale dominates, moves to 9-0 - San Francisco Chronicle

"Sale went the distance on a masterful four-hitter Thursday night, becoming the first major leaguer since 2008 to win his first nine starts, and the Chicago White Sox edged the Houston Astros 2-1 to snap their season-high four game losing streak. Sale joined the New York Giants' Sal Maglie (1952) as the only pitchers to win their first nine starts with sub-2.00 ERAs in major league history. Houston broke the shutout bid in the eighth, when Evan Gattis clubbed Sale's first pitch for a home run. Sale retired the first five batters, allowed a single to Gattis in the second inning then mowed down the next 12 before Jose Altuve singled in the sixth. McHugh allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings to take the loss, his first after three straight wins. Chicago threatened to break on top in the first, but George Springer leaped high to snare Jose Abreu's drive before it cleared the fence. Astros: OF Carlos Gomez (bruised ribcage) could resume baseball activities", www.sfchronicle.com
