Red Sox ace Sale ready to make next postseason start

HOUSTON (AP) Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora says Chris Sale is set to make his next start, lining up the lefty ace for a potential AL Championship Series clincher or World Series opener.

Cora said before Game 5 against Houston on Thursday that Sale threw off flat ground again earlier in the day and was feeling better since the stomach illness that led to him spending a night in a hospital.

"So he's ready for his next start," Cora said.
