Mookie Betts (hamstring) returns to Red Sox's lineup for Wednesday's series finale

Mookie Betts (hamstring) returns to Red Sox's lineup for Wednesday's series finale”

If you were scratching your head late in Tuesday night's Boston Red Sox-Kansas City Royals game, don't worry. Eduardo Nunez 2B 8.

Jorge Soler's three-run homer off Brian Johnson put the Royals ahead 7-4 in the 13th, and the Red Sox stranded the tying run on base after scoring twice in the bottom half.

"We just kept battling and battling", Royals manager Ned Yost said. It was Gordon's first home run of the season. Kimbrel gave up the homer to Gordon in the 9th to tie the game 3-3.

After his first blown save of 2018 and his first in his last 18 chances, Kimbrel said, "I just made a bad pitch and he hit it out of the park". "It was an all-around good game".

Alex Gordon and Whit Merrifield delivered one-out singles, and Soler jumped on a 1-0 curveball from Brian Johnson and lifted it just over the Green Monster. Two Boston errors led to one Royals run. The Royals have also won three of four since losing five straight.

Mitch Moreland, who homered for Boston in the sixth, led off the bottom of the 13th with a single off of Burch Smith, who hit Xander Bogaerts with a pitch.

With two out, Rafael Devers pounded on another slider and belted it off the right-field wall for a double.

Christian Vazquez singled in a run, but Flynn got the first save of his five-year big league career when Nunez flied out to the center-field wall.

Moments later, Keller showed why they must continue to show patience with the rookie as he fired a wild pitch, allowing the lead run to score.

After starter Chris Sale worked seven strong innings - one earned run on five hits, the bullpen could not close the deal with the Sox leading 3-2. He threw it 20 times during his start Friday.

Craig Kimbrel blew a save and the Sox committed four errors en route to an ugly 13 inning loss to the Royals.

Angels 3, Orioles 2: Justin Upton singled home the winning run in the ninth as host Los Angeles snapped a four-game skid. Verlander tied a career high by striking out 14 in eight shutout innings.

"I don't need to see Alex hit a home run for me to think that it's still in there", he said. McCarthy didn't allow a hit and struck out two. He came off the bench in the 10th and grounded out while pinch hitting for Cheslor Cuthbert.

Mookie Betts is back in the Red Sox lineup today after not starting the past three games because of right hamstring tightness. Duffy is 0-4 in six starts against Boston, the only AL team he has yet to beat. The first six-game victor in the major leagues this year, Scherzer drove in his second run of the season with a single and scored twice.
