Game #29: For 7 innings Daniel Bard looked good but he opened the 8th inning by walking Jarrod Dyson and Alex Gordon so Bobby Valentine went to Matt Albers. Billy Butler hit Albers' 3rd pitch for a 3 run homer as the Royals rallied for a 6-4 win. The Sox scored 2 runs with 2 out in the 2nd, which Will Middlebrooks started with a double. Middlebrooks, however, left that inning due to left hamstring tightness. Pictured: Nick Punto slides under Royals 2nd baseman Chris Getz.
