Drew Pomeranz (pictured) started for Boston, going 6.1 innings in the no-decision outing. He allowed the first two KC runs on six hits and a walk while striking out five.

The Royals took an early 2-0 lead with single runs in the second and third innings off Pomeranz. Boston answered back with back-to-back home runs in the fourth by Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts.

The Red Sox padded the lead with two more runs in the top of the fifth on a sacrifice fly by Mookie Betts and an error by first baseman Chesler Cuthbert.
