Logan Morrison hits a home run to give the Rays an early 1-0 lead in the top of the 2nd!!! #RaysUp

Chris Sale's torrid stretch of dominance continues as he baffles hitters, but Logan Morrison and Kevin Kiermaier were able to do something no left-handed hitters had accomplished before Saturday.

Morrison's solo home run in the second inning marked the first time a lefty had gone deep off Sale this season. Before that blast, lefty batters were a combined 3-20 against him, with no extra-base hits and no RBIs, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Kiermaier decided one lefty going deep off Sale wasn't enough, as the defensively savvy outfielder followed Morrison's lead with a two-run bomb to give the Tampa Bay Rays a 3-2 lead at the time.

Kevin Kiermaier crushes a home run over the wall in right-center to bring home two runs and give the Rays a 3-2 lead in the 5th!!! #RaysUp
