Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Jason Hammel works the fourth inning against the Texas Rangers on April 23, 2017 at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.

BOSTON — An early lead against the best team in baseball went for naught, as the Royals lost 10-6 to the Boston Red Sox on Monday night.

The Royals’ evening at Fenway Park began with promise. They took advantage of Red Sox starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez’s erraticism in the first inning, forcing his pitch count up to 35 in the frame and drawing a pair of bases-loaded walks.

But Alex Gordon grounded into an inning-ending double play before they could continue any damage.
