Game 4

37,354 fans watched an exciting game at Fenway Park. The Kansas City Royals
topped the Boston Red Sox by the slimmest of margins, 4 to 3.

Jason Hammel(2-0) had a steady outing. He surrendered 4 hits and 4 walks in 5
innings. Boston made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push
the needed runs across.

Joakim Soria preserved the game for Hammel, recording his his 2nd save. Chris
Sale(3-1) was the losing pitcher. He gave up 4 runs and 6 hits in 9 innings.

Kansas City now forces a game five to decide the series. The game ended when Jackie Bradley Jr was thrown out at the plate
after a single by Dustin Pedroia. Mookie Betts was waiting on deck.
