Boston Red Sox
The Astros outscored Boston by four runs in three games over the weekend but it was the Red Sox who left Minute Maid Park with two twins after a one-run win on Sunday Night Baseball.
Xander Bogaerts swung the biggest stick in Boston’s 6-5 win, twice giving his team the lead with a home run and driving in four, including the last insurance run that proved to be the difference in the game.
David Price needed 107 pitches to get 15 outs and it wasn’t any easier for Boston’s bullpen. The staff threw 192 pitches in total before hitting the road for Kansas City.
Hector Velazquez will make a spot start on Monday in the series opener. It will be his second start of the season – and ever. He got roughed up a bit by the A’s in his first go-around but also got 10 outs out of the bullpen five days ago in a win at Philadelphia.
Kansas City Royals
KC took three of four from the Angels in Cali over the weekend and are threatening to do what I announced they wouldn’t this season – get back to .500.
The Royals looked dead for a lot of May but they’ve had a good month and have to be motivated by the fact that no one has run away with the AL Central, though Cleveland is starting to flex its muscle.
Jason Hammel did not start this season with his new team well at all but he’s trying to right the ship and has been doing just that this month.
Hammel has thrown three straight quality starts and has given up two runs in his last two starts, nearly spanning 14 innings.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Under is 7-0-1 in BOS last 8 Mon. games.

- Over is 7-1-1 in KC last 9 on grass.
- KC are 7-1 in their last 8 overall.
- Head to Head: BOS are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings.
Free Boston Red Sox vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: the Royals get this one.
The Sox have always had some trouble with these games far from home. The bullpen is cooked and Velazquez has some pressure to get deep into this one. KC has to travel to get home too but Boston’s is overnight after yet another Sunday Night Baseball.
