Boston Red Sox vs. Kansas City Royals

Boston Red Sox vs. Kansas City Royals

Morton gave up just two hits over eight innings of work, and struck out ten along the way, improving the Astros record to 20-10 on the season, with only the Red Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks sporting better records as April turns into May.

The Boston Red Sox have baseball's best record at 20-7 and have won 18 games in April, tying a franchise record. Over 35.0 innings and a 2-1 record this year, Sale has a 2.31 ERA with 45 Ks.

Hanley Ramirez (2-for-5), J.D. Martinez (2-for-4, walk), Moreland (3-for-4, walk) and Bogaerts (3-for-5) all had multi-hit games.

In the nitpick department, however, Sale has given up six total earned runs in his last two starts and in his previous four starts this season he gave up a grand total of three. Whit Merrifield had three hits and two RBIs for the Royals. He allowed six runs on six hits with two walks and five strikeouts, allowing five homers, over 5.2 innings in a 6-3 Royals loss. That's plenty comfortable heading into a series with the Yankees, and the confidence from that could be just what they need to again take 2 out of 3 from NY. Jackie Bradley Jr. and Sandy Leon drove in the other Boston runs.

Moustakas left Monday's series opener after getting hit on the forearm by a pitch, but fortunately X-rays on the injured area came back clean. He gave up three hits and a walk with six strikeouts in his second win in 11 starts. Brandon Woodruff (1-0) got the win in relief, striking out two in 1 1/3 innings. He has yet to face the Red Sox this year and did not record a start against them in 2017, either. Fultz may go on to have a stellar career but he's been mostly an afterthought for Philly this season, beset by injuries, and even though he was healthy enough to go last night, he never got the nod to do so. The Sox are 21-7 overall and 10-3 at home.

Hammel is 3-3 with a 4.25 ERA in 15 games and eight starts against Boston in his career, and 2-1 with a 4.45 ERA in nine games and four starts at Fenway Park. The left-hander pitched seven innings of three-run ball, allowing six hits with five strikeouts and one walk. With the game scoreless, Detroit closer Shane Greene (1-2) walked Denard Span to start the ninth.

Allen (2-0) entered with one out in the eighth with Cleveland down 4-3 and got the final two outs of the inning. KC is also 7-0 in Junis' last seven starts in game two of a series and 5-2 in his last seven road starts.
