- Gold Standard on Boston
Boston has not given up on the season just yet as they acquired a couple of bats at the trade deadline. The Red Sox have not been playing well recently and have slipped in the AL East and the AL playoff picture. They are still in contention for a wild card spot but it will be a tough battle, as they are in a fight with six other teams to grab one of the three wild card spots. Boston will need to go on a strong roll in August and September. Boston acquired Eric Hosmer and Tommy Pham at the trade deadline. An already bad offense got worse for the Royals, as they traded Andrew Benintendi and Whit Merrifield. The Royals are bottom 10 in the league in runs, home runs, RBIs, OBP, SLG, and OPS. Boston has been very good on offense this season. They are top 10 in the league in runs, hits, RBIs, batting average, and SLG. Zack Greinke has not been very good this season. He has a 4.35 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and a 47/16 K/BB ratio in 16 starts this season. Opposing batters are hitting .277 against Greinke this season. Boston will hit Greinke well and score a lot of runs. The Red Sox will need to get hot and this is a perfect series for them to get some wins against the lowly Royals. Boston will win this game.
