Red Sox upended on road by Royals

Red Sox upended on road by Royals”

Josh Rutledge will slide over to second base while Pablo Sandoval gets the start at third on Monday.

After the game, Bradley owned up to the mistake, saying he could have taken a deeper route.

McCarthy has pitched 6 1/3 innings in four games for the Royals without giving up a run this season.

It was the third straight start in which Hammel pitched into the seventh.

Boston right-hander Hector Velazquez was almost as good as Hammel in his second career start, carefully navigating a bunch of baserunners during the first two innings. The Mexican gave up six runs and nine hits - including three homers - over five frames against Oakland on May 18 in his first career start.

"He gave us everything we could have hoped for tonight", Red Sox manager John Farrell said.

Pedroia was hit in the back by a pitch from Houston Astros reliever James Hoyt in the seventh inning on Sunday night. His only trouble was in the fourth inning, allowing a two-run homer. The time off came as Perez deals with some soreness in his side. The high school first baseman, chosen with the 14th overall selection, will head to rookie ball in Arizona on Tuesday to begin his professional career.

McCarty takes the place of Eric Skoglund, who was optioned back to Omaha.

Much like the start of the season, the Boston offense again appears to be in a slump and the Sox are only as good as their starting pitching.

Velazquez makes his second major-league start after holding Philadelphia scoreless on one hit and one walk over 3 1/3 innings on Wednesday to record the victory in relief.
