Royals 3, Red Sox 2

Game 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Eric Hosmer homered for the second straight game as the Royals won the opener of a split doubleheader. Hosmer followed a single by Alcides Escobar with a homer in the first inning, and Lorenzo Cain added a sacrifice fly after a triple by Jarrod Dyson in the sixth for the Royals' only offense. It proved to be enough for Ian Kennedy and their bullpen. Kennedy allowed two runs on six hits and a walk over 5⅔ innings.
