Chris Sale was locked in during Game 5 of the American League Championship Series vs. the Houston Astros.

The Boston Red Sox southpaw hasn't looked like his ace self in recent starts, but that changed Wednesday night. Sale allowed only two hits and one run while striking out seven through five innings of work.

His biggest moment came in the fourth inning when he struck out Astros slugger Kyle Tucker to get out of a jam unscathed. A fired-up Sale reacted by celebrating and screaming into his glove as he walked off the mount.

Watch the sequence below:

Now that's the Chris Sale Red Sox fans have gotten to know over the last five years.

Sale will be even more fired up when his team gets him some runs. The Red Sox were kept off the scoreboard through four innings as the offense was shut down by Astros starter Framber Valdez.
