Despite his 0.00 ERA out of the bullpen, last night he finally gave up a hit.  Whitlock had retired 25 straight batters until he gave up a hit to Sam Haggerty with two outs in the sixth.

Chris Sale was the last Red Sox pitched to retire 25 straight batters, that was done in 2019. 


He also allowed a walk in the 6-5 win over the Mariners as well.  Manager Alex Cora has been impressed with his young hurler. 


“It’s amazing.  I think he got to a 3-2 count against Kyle Seager and threw a fastball right by him,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. 


“He doesn’t shy away from the strike zone.  And he has great stuff.  Today, I was looking up and it wasn’t his best outing but he gave us what we needed.  And his composure, he understands the game,” added Cora. 


Whitlock has been dominating all season long for Boston out of the bullpen.  He is quickly becoming one of the top relievers in the majors this season.
