Chris Sale sets franchise strikeout record in White Sox win over Tigers | Chicago Sun-Times

Ed Walsh’s record for strikeouts stood for 107 years. It finally came down Friday night.

White Sox strikeout whiz Chris Sale did the honor by striking out Detroit Tigers catcher James McCann in the second inning of a 2-1 victory. Sale’s third of the night and the one that passed Walsh’s mark of 269 set in 1908.

McCann took a called strike on back-door slider on the outside corner from Sale, who received a standing ovation from a paid crowd of 18,030 before finishing with seven strikeouts over seven-plus innings and a record 274 for the season.

“It’s awesome, something that hasn’t set in yet but I know what it means, I know what it is, I’m very thankful for it and appreciative of it,’’ Sale said.

Facing Chris Sale of Chicago White Sox is a complete nightmare

“He’s that guy who, [when] you see he’s pitching, all of a sudden your hamstring gets tight or something,” Minnesota’s Brian Dozier says of Sale. “You don’t know if you can make it that game.”

“I try to save up any sick days or off days I have, and use them when he’s starting,” says Cleveland’s Jason Kipnis. “I’ve timed it up perfectly, I think, since 2013. If I had an off day coming up, I’d push it back a week until we were playing the White Sox and use it on him. I play dodgeball with him. You know that old thing: ‘How’s your back?’ ‘Hmmm, it’s tight today—the weather must be getting to me.’ Or it’s the old Rodney Dangerfield thing: ‘Wait. My arm. Yeah, it’s my arm.’ That’s how I feel when I know he’s pitching.”

“Go ask every hitter who the top five pitchers in baseball are, and I guarantee every one of them will mention him,” Philadelphia’s Jeff Francoeur says of Sale. “If they don’t, it means they never faced him.”
