Royals 4, Red Sox 3
Catcher Jason Varitek provided some offensive spark for the Red Sox. He had an RBI single to drive in right fielder J.D. Drew to cut the lead to 4-3 in the sixth inning. Varitek has been in a bit of a slide after a strong start to the season. He's 3 for his last 18 (.167) with no home runs and one RBI.
