Eduardo Nunez Added To Red Sox Roster; Deven Marrero Sent Down

The Boston Red Sox, yesterday traveled to Seattle, Washington to play the first of a three game series against the Mariners. In 15 games since the All-Star break, the Red Sox are hitting an Major League Baseball worst.212 with just 10 homers (28th), 17 doubles (29th) and 50 runs (26th).

The drama is mounting, the pressure is building and the Red Sox are continuing to lose games. He continues to have a career season and is having it in his walk year.

Boston has a chance to regain momentum on Saturday with Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound. The former No. 1 overall pick had his best start of the season the previous time out, when he put up eight scoreless innings against the New York Yankees.

The Royals held off Boston for a 4-2 win on Friday to open this series.

After David Price was pulled to go on the DL, Rick Porcello got the start for Boston on Friday and he allowed four earned runs in seven innings to take his 14 loss of 2017.

Fantasy Impact Moustakas is only six homers shy of the Royals' season record and he is the fastest to reach the mark in team history. Jason Vargas was the winning pitcher, he pitched 6 innings giving up 1 run on 5 hits. For his major league career as a whole, a tenure that has spanned 631 regular-season appearances and 1,999 at-bats in all, the veteran is now hitting.279 with 38 home runs and 218 RBIs to coincide with his.317 on-base percentage.

With the way things seem right now, today's game to me feels like it's going to be a low scoring affair, with whoever scores first wins.
