Wrong 'Wright' Off The Bat, Red Sox Lose To KC, 6-3

Maybe it was the heat, or the humidity that did Steven Wright in last night in the first inning—but more likely it was just the hot Kansas City bats. In any event, the game was pretty much over before most fans squeezed their 21st-century posteriors into Fenway's early 20th-century seats. Down 5-0 after one, Boston's offense again squandered multiple opportunities to score on Ian "Don't Call Me John Fitzgerald" Kennedy, ultimately losing, 6-3. The 'highlights' of the night were Mookie Betts recording the first 5-5 night of his career and Dustin Pedroia getting four hits. But apparently fifteen hits just isn't enough to push runs across—with the The Carmine Hose leaving twelve on base.
