Royals swept by Red Sox, Perez named to All-Star game Featured

The Boston Red Sox completed a 3 game sweep of the Kansas City Royals with a 7-4 win Sunday.

Whit Merrifield led the Royals going 5 for 5 with a run scored and an RBI. Manager Ned Yost says Merrfield is having a good season.

The Royals have now lost 9 in a row. The Royals begin a 3 game series against the Twins in Minneapolis Monday night. Danny Duffy will be on the mound for the Royals with first pitch at 7:10p.
Sunday Alcides Escobar saw his consecutive games played streak  end at 421 games.
The Royals placed Jakob Junis on the disabled list with back tightness.
They also sent Jason Hammel to the bullpen. Manager Ned Yost says main focus for the rest of the season will be player development.

The Kansas City Royals Sunday announced the signing of Japanese 16-year old pitcher Kaito Yuki. The Osaka, Japan, native just completed his junior high season in May and chose to sign a professional contract with the Royals over attending high school.
