Red Sox Suffer Double-Dip Loss To Royals

The Red Sox lost both ends of a day-night double-header to the Royals on Sunday by scores of 4-2 and 5-4—blowing golden opportunities to win both games and seize the best record in baseball. As it is, bad pitching re-surfaced in both tilts—with Ryan Dempster unable to hold a lead in Game One and both Koji Uehara and Andrew Miller pitching poorly in the nightcap. Uehara gave up the game-tying home run in the eighth and Miller lost control and walked in the winning run in the tenth. All in all, a dissatisfying end to a tumultuous weekend in Boston.
