An eight-run implosion in the sixth inning dooms the Red Sox to a 10-4 loss to the surging Royals on Sunday Night Baseball. Boston is two games behind Toronto in the AL East and one ahead of Baltimore for the first AL wild-card berth. Kansas City, meanwhile, has won 17 of its last 21.

August ERAs for relievers who began the month as high-leverage options for Red Sox manager John Farrell: Matt Barnes (11.17 in 11 appearances), Fernando Abad (5.63 in 10 appearances), Junichi Tazawa (11.25 in nine appearances entering the ninth inning tonight). If Boston doesn't win the AL East or misses the playoffs entirely, the bullpen will be an enormous reason.
