Royals beat Red Sox on Salvy's first career grand slam

Bogaerts hits a solo home run during the fourth inning of the Red Sox’ loss to the Royals yesterday

Before they recorded a single out in the eighth, two of the Red Sox most trusted relievers walked the bases loaded and surrendered the first grand slam of Salvador Perez' career.

Boston's win combined with the Yankees loss to the Angels gives puts the Red Sox in first place in the division for the first time this season.

The bullpen meltdown spoiled a good outing from starter Drew Pomeranz who allowing two runs in 6 1/3 innings, while scattering six hits. In his career, Sale is 9-10 with a 2.97 ERA and 144 strikeouts against Kansas City. Another double opened the third inning, and that led to another run.

"I'll never settle", Sale said. Ramon Torres ran for Butera. He also allowed just one run over 6 1/3 innings on Friday in Houston. Whit Merrifield walks. Jorge Bonifacio homers to center field. Escobar led off the third with his 1,000th hit in a Royals uniform. The left-hander with a delivery eerily similar to Sale's was hammered for five runs on seven hits and a walk before exiting with nobody out in the fourth.

Kelvin Herrera worked around an Andrew Benintendi (Arkansas Razorbacks) triple in the ninth for his 16th save.

Fernando Abad replaced Velazquez and immediately got into a pickle. After Josh Rutledge beat out an infield single to Moustakas, Strahm uncorked a wild pitch as Travis and Rutledge each moved up 90 feet. Abad exited after facing two batters and getting nobody out.

Boyer escaped in the sixth, but not in the seventh.

2 runs, 2 hits, 0 errors, 0 left on.

When Whit Merrifield stepped onto campus as a freshman at SC, he was set to play center field for the Gamecocks. Ramirez led off the top of the fourth with a bloop single to right.

Xander Bogaerts took a 3-1 Kennedy offering over the left-field fence to tie the score at 2. After a three-minute, five-second delay, the call on the field was not overturned.

As he took the mound at Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday, Sale led the American League in strikeouts (136), innings (99) and FIP (1.77), an advanced metric that resembles ERA and judges pitchers independent of their defense. Hosmer struck out and Moustakas flied out to left to strand the runners.

Red Sox: Pedroia (ribs) still felt discomfort while swinging in the cage before the game, though Farrell said it's possible the second baseman could play Wednesday. Red Sox 5, Royals 1.

Royals RHP Kevin McCarthy was recalled from Triple-A Omaha and LHP Eric Skoglund was optioned back to the Storm Chasers before the game.

Hammel's latest starring role came Monday night, when he held the powerful Boston Red Sox in check for seven sharp innings.
