The Boston Red Sox have struggled this season in one run games but that seems to be changing as they won another beating the Royals 2-1 at Fenway Park Saturday night.Mike Napoli's 11th home run of the season, a solo shot in the 6th inning gave Boston a 2-1 lead and their third straight win. Napoli also scored the game tying run in the 4th inning when the Royals committed an error on a ball hit by Shane Victorino who returned to the lineup after rehabing a hamstring injury.
Starting pitcher Rubby De La Rosa earned his 3rd win after allowing just 5 hits over 7 innings of work. Boston will go for the series sweep today when Jon Lester takes the mound against Yordano Ventura with the pregame starting at 12:50 and first pitch at 1:35 on AM 1370 WDEA.
