Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox did just lost two out of three to the Yankees this past weekend but, otherwise, things are set up rather nicely.
They swept the Angels before that series and swept the Nationals this week. They’re off on Thursday after playing an 11 am game on the 4th so there was more than enough time to travel comfortably to Kansas City.
And now Chris Sale starts the first game of the series against a team with more wins than only Baltimore in all of baseball.
Sale hasn’t given up a run in either of his last two starts. He went seven shutout against Seattle and did the same against New York in the only game Boston won over the weekend. He struck out a combined 24 batters in those two games.
In fact, he has struck out double-digits in each of his last three starts and it could have been five in a row had he struck out one more in his last start against Baltimore.
Kansas City Royals
Meanwhile, Kansas City was swept this week by Cleveland and it was swept over the weekend by Seattle. The Royals have lost six in a row heading into this series.
They also lost two of three back in late-April when they went to Boston, though the final two games of that series were decided by one run.
Jason Hammel will oppose Chris Sale. He’s giving up 11.2 hits per nine innings this season, which he hasn’t done since he was a baby-faced rookie in 2006 and gave up 12.5 per nine in 44 innings pitching for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: Sale wins, but I wouldn’t count on it.
Boston will probably be about as big of a road favorite as there has been in baseball this season so I can’t possibly back the Sox. In fact, it’s probably a game to fade them for no other reason other than they just aren’t good enough to dominate bad teams the way a team 30 games over .500 should.
