The Sox have now lost eight straight games, which ties the longest streak they have had since the 2015 season. They haven’t lost nine straight or more, since the 2014 season. Something’s gotta give. Now they face the rebuilding 40-73 Kansas City Royals. ONLY the Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers have had worst seasons to this point. The Royals are 27th in Runs scored, and 26th in ERA (5.06)

Anything less than 2 out of 3, I don’t know what to say.
