The Boston Red Sox are having a grand time at the plate this season.
The Red Sox defeated the Kansas City Royals 10-6 at Fenway Park on Monday night thanks to Xander Bogaerts’ monster grand slam in the third inning. It was the shortstop’s second grand slam of the season and Boston’s sixth granny through just 28 games this season.
