The Royals lost the lead in the sixth inning by a Brock Holt RBI that was able to send Rafael Devers home from second which swung momentum in favor of Boston.

Eduardo Nunez hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning which broke open what had been a close game, and the Red Sox went on to beat the Royals 8-3.
