Matt Barnes Shelled Again, Red Sox Fall to KC, 6-3
Matt Barnes is young guy who throws hard. Unfortunately, he's become one-dimensional in his recent MLB stint with the Red Sox. Major league hitters can handle that—and have in Barnes' last two starts. As a result—after yesterday's 6-3 loss—Barnes was sent back down to AAA Pawtucket. Boston's offense made a game of it, with Mookie Betts (solo HR) and Xander Bogaerts (2-5, RBI, run scored) leading the way. David Ortiz also had two, while both Blake Swihart and Travis Shaw continued hitting as well. Nonetheless, it wasn't enough to take three in a row form the powerhouse Royals.
