Game Thread: Friday Night in Fenway

Johnny Beisbol takes the hill as Kansas City looks to even things up with Boston.

The page is turned on yesterday. The Royals have a new starting pitcher. Their second baseman, mired in an 0-for-26 slump, returns to the lineup.

...Maybe a recipe for success?

Oh yeah, and then there's Johnny Cueto, winner of his last two starts, taking the hill at Fenway Park for the first time in his career. Opposing him a soft-tossing rookie. We all know what happens next, right?

Perhaps not. Happy Cueto day, everyone!
