David Ortiz briefly wore some olympic gold, courtesy of Massachusetts gymnast Aly Raisman but it was the KC Royals winning the night, 6-3 over the Red Sox.

The first inning problems, combined with the Sox leaving runners on base killed them. The Sox were 4-for-15 with runners in scoring position.
The one bright spot - Mookie Betts had five hits and raised his average to .320.
The Sox fall a game behind Toronto for first place in the AL East after the Blue Jays won their Friday night game.
