Matt Strahm just started throwing in the bullpen, but Ned Yost says he warms up fairly quickly. Bogaerts hit and Boston leads 4-2.

Bucci Mane @Buccigross

Never seen anyone play more shallow in right than Lorenzo Cain. It's 13 year old up in Babe Ruth Baseball shallow.

With that home run -- a solo shot in the fourth inning -- David Ortiz has tied Jimmie Foxx for 18th on the all-time list with 534 homers. Next up: Mickey Mantle at 536. Ortiz has 31 homers this season. Red Sox now trail the Royals, 2-1.

Bucci Mane @Buccigross

Can someone explain to me why Jackie Bradley Jr bats 9th? That brilliant overthinking must have slipped past me.
