The Kansas City Royals just came off of splitting a four-game set with the New York Yankees and have won six of their last 10 games. Now they face off against the struggling Boston Red Sox who are only 11-16 this year and are riding a five-game losing streak. Their latest is a 17-inning loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

The Red Sox also have an overworked bullpen so the Royals can cause some damager if they can knock out starter Felix Doubront. In Doubront's last start he did give up five runs in his last start and has yet to make it out of the sixth inning.

Perhaps with the Red Sox bullpen trouble it could provide a spark for the Royals to improve off of their 2-12 record at home, however the Royals own starters are 2-8 with a 6.59 ERA at home this year. Also, the Red Sox have won seven of their last nine at Kauffman Stadium.
