It was a high scoring game at Fenway Park but the Boston Red Sox came out on top against the Kansas City Royals by the score of 11-8.  Thanks to two grand slams by J.D. Drew and Mike Lowell, the Red Sox put up 11 runs on the board and swept the Royals in their three game series.

Drew and Lowell both finished the game with four rbi each in the game.  Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, and Julio Lugo all had one rbi in the game as well.

It was a good thing the Red Sox offense score 11 runs because the pitching staff wasn’t that good today as they gave up eight runs to the Royals offense.  Starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka gave up three runs over 5 2/3 innings pitched.  Matsuzaka did improve to 8-0 on the season however as he was still able to get the victory.

Relief pitcher Craig Hansen gave up two runs while David Aardsma gave up three more runs in the game.  Aardsma gave up a three run home run in the eighth inning to account for all three of his runs given up.

The Red Sox will now hop on a plane and travel across the country to face the Oakland Athletics.
