Sox Fall to Royals 9-3

Red SoxKANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Justin Maxwell homered and singled twice to help the Kansas City Royals rallied for a 9-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night.

The Royals have won 15 of their past 17 games to move seven games above .500, matching their best record of the season.

Maxwell, who the Royals acquired on July 31 from the Houston Astros for a minor league pitcher, homered leading off the second.

With the Royals trailing 6-3 in the sixth, he led off the inning with a single. The Royals sent 11 men to the plate in the inning against Red Sox pitchers Jake Peavy, Drake Britton and Pedro Beato.

Peavy, who was making his second Red Sox start since being acquired in a July 30 trade from the Chicago White Sox, yielded singles to Maxwell, Mike Moustakas and Alcides Escobar to start the inning. Escobar’s RBI single finished Peavy.
