Boston Red Sox v Kansas City Royals
Game 1 between the Red Sox and Royals starts on Friday

The three-game series between the Boston Red Sox and the Kansas City Royals starts on Friday. Fenway Park is all set to host the Royals after the Red Sox suffered an unwanted series defeat to their fiercest rival, the New York Yankees. Boston are looking to turn things around in this series.

The Red Sox are going through a tough phase, already out of the race for the playoffs. It is unusual to see such a team at the bottom of the American League East division. They have the worst winning percentage of .483 in the division. Their inconsistent home form (35-36) was not good enough to save them. Fans have been left disappointed throughout, especially after the series loss against the Yankees.

Kansas are not so very different from the Red Sox. They are only fourth in the AL Central and far behind the other top teams. There is no hope for them to make it to the playoffs. All the team can do is try to maintain the fourth spot as the Detroit Tigers are lurking right behind them. The Royals are also entering this series with a straight defeat against the Minnesota Twins.

Boston and Kansas will be fighting it out on the field for pride. As they cannot save their season, they would like to finish it off with a few wins. This is an excellent opportunity for either team to make a clean sweep. However, with the support of the home crowd, the Red Sox seem to have a slight advantage. Whether it works or not, only time will tell.
