Chris Sale slams glove, pounds cooler after bad start vs. Orioles (Video)

Chris Sale pounds on cooler, Red Sox vs. Orioles, 4/24/2023
Boston Red Sox starter Chris Sale threw temper tantrum in the dugout after being removed from Monday night's game against Baltimore.

Sale was removed from the game after giving up five runs (all earned) on nine hits in five innings. After he was done for the day, Sale slammed his glove on the dugout bench and pounded on the cooler a few times to release his frustration.

Sale has been known to bang on coolers after poor starts, and he has been doing this for years. We saw him slamming a cooler in the White Sox dugout back in 2013 and smashing a bat against the wall in a dugout tunnel back in 2014.

Fortunately, Sale did not injure himself during the incident. However, Sale's teammates weren't able to come up with any offense after he was taken out of the game, so he took the loss as the Orioles came away with the 5-4 victory.
