The Red Sox will only visit Chase Field three times in the history of the franchise. The first time was in 2007, when the Red Sox defeated the Anybody,
Anytime Dbacks by winning two out of three games. The Diamondbacks triumphed when they returned in 2019, winning two of the three games.
Game 1 — Friday, May 26, 6:40 p.m. Chris Sale (4-2, 5.01 ERA/92 ERA+, 1.17 WHIP) vs. Brandon Pfaadt (0-1, 7.65 ERA/57 ERA+)
Pfaadt has made a few respectable starts since making his first two MLB starts, which were abject failures.
In five innings on the 14th, he limited the Giants to one hit while allowing three walks. His most recent start consisted of 5.1 innings and three runs.
Chris Sale will have made more starts after this one than in 2022 or 2021 combined.
