First pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. If you live in the Red Sox television market you can catch the game on NESN. If you live in the Royals television market, you can catch the game on Fox Sports Kansas City. . And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network.
The over/under on the game is 8.5 runs and the line on the Red Sox is -150.
Ryan Dempster looks for his first win in a Red Sox uniform in his fourth start of 2013. In his previous three starts, Dempster is 0-1 with a 2.65 ERA. As a member of the Texas Rangers last year, he picked up the win in his only start against the Royals allowing two runs in six innings of work. The Harry Caray impersonator has made three career starts against the Royals and is 2-0 with a 4.00 ER (8 ER/18 IP).

A number of athletes have used their equipment to pay their respects to the victims of this past week’s tragic events. On Sunday, Jonny Gomes will use his bat to pay homage. Will Middlebrooks tweeted a photo prior to the first game of the Red Sox’ doubleheader against the Royals. It’s supposedly of the lumber that Gomes will use.

I started writing some nonsense about how the Sox 4-3 victory over the Royals this afternoon was symbolic of the city of Boston in the wake of the Marathon tragedy. 'Never give up' and all that. But America's pastime is meant to be a reprieve from all of that. As a wrote this morning, this game was a great way to clear our minds of this...
Clay Buchholz was strong for eight innings but it was Daniel Nava who played hero on Saturday afternoon. It was his three-run homer in the 8th inning that helped the Boston Red Sox to a 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals.

This is just cool. And we’re all baseball fans, so this should hit home no matter what team or city you root for. After a draining week following the Boston Marathon bombing, the Red Sox held a riveting ceremony. Here’s some of it, courtesy of Deadspin and NESN.
RED SOX PRE GAME CEREMONY
The Boston Red Sox had quite the emotional week this past week, but continued to play red hot baseball.

The words were simple and very effective...

Boston struggled last season vs. the Athletics by going only 1-8 against them, which included the Red Sox dropping two out of three at Fenway Park last April 30...
