The Boston Red Sox go for a three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals on Thursday afternoon at Kauffman Stadium.

Ryan Weber will make his third start of the season in the series finale. The right-hander was roughed up in his last outing against the Cleveland Indians, allowing seven earned runs on eight hits over just four innings.

Weber will be opposed by Danny Duffy, who also is coming off a lousy start. The Royals southpaw allowed six earned runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Texas Rangers in his most recent trip to the mound.
