Chris Sale struck out Manny Machado to clinch the 2018 World Series title for the Red Sox, but arguably his most notable moment came in Game 4.
With the Red Sox down 4-0 to the Dodgers in the sixth inning, Sale couldn't stand to watch Boston's bats go cold any longer. The left-hander woke his teammates up with an epic speech in the dugout, and the Red Sox went on to earn a 9-6 victory.
On Barstool Sports' "Section 10 Podcast," Sale explained what was going through his mind when he decided to let out all of his frustrations.
"I just felt like we were a little bit flat," Sale said. "It was just kind of an assembly line and, you know, that's not who we are. We're a very flash team in terms of what we do on the field. We have some players in that clubhouse that can completely wow you on a daily basis on the field, and I felt like we weren't playing to what we were capable of playing with.
"We weren't really taking charge like we usually do, and I don't know, I just kind of lost it for a second."
