Red Sox (12-4) 4, Royals (8-7) 3.

W: Buchholz (4-0), L: Herrera (1-2), SV: Bailey (3).

An emotional day at Fenway today as baseball resumed in Boston. A beautiful pre-game ceremony honoring the victims, those injured, and Boston’s finest capped off by a heart felt speech from returning favorite David Ortiz, who said it best (and shockingly) as “This is our fucking city!”

Buchholz may not have had his best stuff today but he battled through eight innings, striking out six, and giving up two runs. Bailey came in to secure the save.

Daniel Nava put the team on his back with some bottom of the eighth inning heroics hitting a three run home run into the bullpen.

BATTING
2B: Gomes, J (2, Collins).
HR: Nava (4, 8th inning off Herrera, K, 2 on, 2 out).
TB: Ellsbury; Ortiz, D 2; Drew; Middlebrooks; Gomes, J 2; Nava 4.
RBI: Ortiz, D (1), Nava 3 (14).
2-out RBI: Ortiz, D; Nava 3.
