Oof, Sox lose two straight to the Royals

One night after getting shut out by the crafty Bruce Chen, the Sox lost again to the red hot Royals 9-6.

New addition Jake Peavy carried a 6-3 lead into the bottom of the sixth and then he and the bullpen melted down allowing KC to hang six runs on them for the win. Boys got a taste of their own comeback medicine, I guess.

With the Rays losing in similar fashion ('pen meltdown), Boston still has a two game lead in the division. Felix Doubront is on the mound tonight (I think, might be a day game), and hopefully he can turn in another stellar performance. Should the guys win today, my thinking is that they start Workman in place of Ryan Dempster, who's been struggling of late. A series split would be good here. Only taking 1 of 3 or a sweep could allow the Rays to overtake first place again.

Fingers crossed
