Boston Red Sox
John Farrell gave Chris Sale the chance to finish what he started.
It didn’t go as planned for Sale in the ninth inning at Kauffman Stadium but that didn’t influence the outcome. Boston’s ace pitched his team to its 40th win and sole possession of first-place in the AL East.
Sale went eight strong before giving up a two-run homer to Emilio Bonifacio with one out in the ninth before Farrell let him get an early shower. Fernando Abad needed just eight pitches to put the finishing touches on an 8-3 win.
The Red Sox outhit the Royals 13-4 and set their sights on the rubber match set to start at 2:15 local time on Wednesday. Drew Pomeranz will make his 14th start of the season. He was sharp in his last outing, a no-decision, against Houston.
Kansas City Royals
KC, meanwhile, only got three innings out of its starter, Matt Strahm. A trio of relievers each got six outs to mop-up the Royals’ loss.
Ian Kennedy will start on Wednesday afternoon for the home team. Kennedy has given up at least one home run in each of his last nine trips to the mound and his ERA has more than doubled over that span.
The former top prospect and 21-game winner is also only averaging just over five innings per start for the Royals this season. He did win his last outing, his first win all season. He’s now 1-6 in 12 starts.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: this one is high-scoring.
Kennedy has been terrible and I don’t trust Pom in this spot. It feels like each side could get at least five or six.
