    As far as rehab assignments go, the one Red Sox starting pitcher Michael Wacha turned in Thursday can only be defined as a resounding success.
    Wacha, who has been sidelined due to right shoulder inflammation, dazzled with Triple-A Worcester, pitching 4 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing no hits and one walk while striking out eight against the Durham Bulls.
    This was Wacha's first rehab outing since landing on the injured list on July 8, and with the way he performed, it will presumably be the only start he makes in the minors before returning to the big-league club. The last...

    It was a little bit of an uneven start from Boston Red Sox pitcher Nick Pivetta on Thursday against the Kansas City Royals, but he was still pretty pleased with his outing.
    While things got away from the Red Sox after Pivetta left the contest, the right-hander tossed five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out five and only walking one to earn a no decision.
    Pivetta surrendered two runs in the bottom of the first inning, but settled in nicely after, which left him satisfied with how things went on the mound.

    The Boston Red Sox dropped their series opener against the Kansas City Royals on Thursday, falling 7-3 behind a troubling seventh inning that saw the Royals score four runs.
    That seventh inning was home to a controversial home-run call , where Royals catcher Salvador Perez roped a ball down into the left field corner and off the top of the wall below the foul pole. The ball ricocheted back onto the field, but the umpires decided to waive Perez in and score the extra run. Following a crew chief review, the call was upheld to make the score 7-3.

    Seemingly overnight, Bobby Dalbec lost out on starting at either first or third base for the Boston Red Sox.
    Dalbec has played in 66 games for the Red Sox at first base this season, but with Boston acquiring Gold Glove winner Eric Hosmer , who was in the starting lineup Thursday, it will put Dalbec into more of a reserve role at the position. Dalbec has filled in at times across the infield at the hot corner as well, but obviously will now be behind Rafael Devers on the depth chart with the All-Star returning from injury.
