The Boston Red Sox and the Kansas City Royals will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at Kauffman Stadium.

The Red Sox will trot Drew Pomeranz out to the mound in this one. Left hander Pomeranz has a 6-4 record and a 4.19 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Royals will be Ian Kennedy. The right hander has a 5.03 ERA to go along with a 1-6 record this season.

Pomeranz rebounded from a brutal outing by recording a strong one, allowing one run on four hits in 6 1/3 innings of a no-decision at Houston on Friday. The 28-year-old’s lone blemish in that contest was Brian McCann’s solo homer – the fourth time the Ole Miss product has been taken deep in his last five trips to the mound. Pomeranz has limited experience in his career versus the current crop of Kansas City batters, who are a collective 1-for-7 against him with five strikeouts.

Kennedy was working on a perfect game against the Los Angeles Angels before Cliff Pennington’s solo homer in the sixth inning put an end to that. The 32-year-old allowed just one more hit to pick up his first win, but his penchant for being taken deep has been an issue this season. Kennedy has surrendered a homer in each of his last nine outings, with 11 total coming in that stretch.

Oddsmakers currently have the Red Sox listed as 143-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Boston Red Sox find themselves in first place in the American League East on the strength of their 19-10 mark over the last 29 contests in addition to a season-worst seven-game swoon by their bitter rival in the Bronx. The visiting Red Sox aim to bolster their slim lead in the standings with a series victory against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday afternoon when the teams play the finale at Kauffman Stadium.

Xander Bogaerts had a two-run single in Tuesday’s 8-3 romp to run his hitting streak to a staggering 18 straight games versus the Royals. The 24-year-old is 7-for-14 with two homers and six RBIs in his last three contests overall and 3-for-6 in a small sample size versus Wednesday starter Ian Kennedy. Kansas City had won eight of nine before being silenced by Chris Sale, although Mike Moustakas belted a solo homer off the Boston ace to continue a blistering month of June (24-for-69, six homers, 20 RBIs, 12 runs scored). Jorge Bonifacio added a two-run shot to give him a run scored in three straight contests to go along with eight hits and as many RBIs in his last eight games for the Royals.

The Royals were a 8-3 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Red Sox. That made winners of bettors who got Boston at -186 on the moneyline, while the total score (11) was good news for OVER bettors.
