After going the entire 2017 season without so much as a single grand slam, Boston has now hit six in the first month of 2018, tying a record set by the 1996 Montreal Expos.

The Royals jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning off Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez on a hit batter, two hits, and three walks.

Mitch Moreland homered in the bottom of the second to make it 3-1.

The Red Sox scored five times in the third when Moreland walked with the bases loaded, followed by the Bogaerts (pictured) slam over everything in left field.

Hector Velazquez was the winner with two scoreless innings of relief.

Moreland and Bogaerts each had three hits. Hanley Ramirez and J.D. Martinez had a pair each Bostonm's 13-hit attack.
