Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox piled on seven runs in the ninth inning to cap an offensive outburst in a 15-4 win over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday at Kauffman Stadium.

Andrew Benintendi hit the only home run of the game for the Red Sox despite the team plating 15 runs, swatting his 14th of the season. All 11 players who batted for the Red Sox drove in at least one run, including three RBIs for Xander Bogaerts.

Kansas City used six pitchers in the game before needing to turn to catcher Drew Butera on the mound in the ninth inning. Butera managed to get two batters out, while allowing two runs on two hits and three walks.

Red Sox starter David Price didn’t fare any better than the Royals staff, letting up four funs in 4.2 innings and raising his ERA to 4.44. He also tied a major-league record when he hit three batsmen in the fifth inning, becoming the first Red Sox pitcher to plunk three hitters in a single frame. The Boston bullpen, however, hurled 4.1 scoreless innings from there.
