W2W4: Red Sox-Royals, 1:35 p.m.

Today's Red Sox-Royals matinee features the return of Daisuke Matsuzaka, who last pitched for the Sox in early July before going on the DL with a neck injury. He is 0-3 with a 6.65 ERA in five starts this season.

A win today will give Boston its first series victory in nearly a month.
