Red Sox 5, Royals 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts homered to back a strong start by former Rays ace David Price, and the Red Sox salvaged a split in their day-night doubleheader. Price allowed two runs over 7⅓. Junichi Tazawa got through the rest of the eighth before Craig Kimbrel handled a scoreless ninth for his 11th save. Christian Vazquez dribbled a single up the middle to score two in the sixth, giving the Red Sox plenty of cushion.
