Sunday Night Baseball features one of the best series’ on the weekend slate.
The surging Kansas City Royals look to continue their winning ways, when they take on AL East leaders Boston on ESPN.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals recent surge has gotten them right back into the thick of the playoff race.
The defending champs look dead and buried about a month ago, but have since jumped to just 6.5 out of the division and 3.0 games out of a Wild Card spot.
Kansas City opened things up in game 1 of this series with a 5 spot in the first inning, thanks to Eric Hosmer and Alex Gordon. The Royals have gotten their swagger back, that they used so much last season and have seen Kelvin Herrera step up in the back end of the bullpen.
Yordano Ventura gets the ball here, looking to make it 5 straight quality starts.
Ventura has been nearly flawless over his last two starts, conceding just 1 run in the process.
He has won his last 3 decisions.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox continue to battle with the Blue Jays and Orioles in the AL East and the race looks like its going to keep all three teams in it throughout the rest of the season.
Boston fell Friday at home, but still have used Fenway Park to their advantage. The Red Sox have gone 38-28 inside Fenway Park, while averaging 6.0 runs per game.
It’s been the David Ortiz show this season, as he continues to go out with a bang. Ortiz is hitting .320 with 30 homers and 100 runs batted in on his farewell tour. With the national stage here on Sunday night, don’t be shocked if Ortiz adds to the highlight reel.
Pitching wise, the Red Sox send out Eduardo Rodriguez, who looks to continue his little hot streak.
The LH has allowed just 1 run through 11.0 innings of work in his last two games.
Rodriguez has been battling a hamstring injury, but got through a bullpen session last week pain free.

Both teams know how important this game is. Not only for their own divisional races, but they could end up battling for a Wild Card spot.
Give the edge to the Royals, as Ventura has been pitching extremely well as of late. Rodriguez said he was pain free with the hamstring, but it will be something to watch early here.
