Doubleheader Blues 04/21: Royals 4 Red Sox (12-5) 2; Royals 5 Red Sox (12-6) 4

Well this was embarrassing.  There really should be no excuse to lose both ends of a doubleheader, but that is what happened.

In the opening game, Ryan Dempster took the loss with one bad inning where he allowed three runs.  Unfortunately the offense could never really get going and that was enough to lose.  David Ortiz had three hits and Daniel Nava had two, but that was pretty much it for the offense.

DAVID ORTIZ (3 for 4, double, RBI)

In the second game Allen Webster, the big prize in last year's Dodger deal, made his Major League debut.  He pitched well, pitching six innings, striking out five, walking one, and allowing three runs.  He left the game with the lead, but Koji Uehara gave up a tying home run and Andrew Miller walked in the lead run in the 10th.  Boston had several opportunities but could not come up with a big hit.

MIKE NAPOLI: (3 for 5, home run, double, two RBIs)
