Mondesi’s big bomb leads Royals past Red Sox, 5-3

It was a great night for the Royals on Friday, as they used two home runs to take down the first-place Boston Red Sox, 5-3. The only people in Kansas City that were left sad were the many, many Johnson County Boston fans in their Walmart Red Sox jerseys.

Red Sox at Royals lineups: Back on the grind

The Red Sox look to avenge last night’s loss to the Royals when the teams square off this afternoon in Kansas City (4:10 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-market). The Sox will try to win behind Martín Pérez, who, for one reason or another, has been absolutely blistered the last couple times out, most recently in a ghastly performance against the Blue Jays in which he didn’t escape the second inning. That his ERA is merely 4.58 now is a testament to how good he was before the last two appearances, the timing of which, following MLB’s awkward crackdown on substances to help pitchers grip the ball, made the whole thing interesting, to say the least. But ultimately Pérez is more of a 4.58 ERA pitcher than he is a 3.58 ERA one and this regression was coming either way, so we are right where we should have expected to be heading into today’s game.
