Scott Downs, Ned Yost make mistakes as Royals fall to Red Sox, 5-4

Scott Downs loped into the outfield grass, and Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley, Jr., understood his night was over. He turned his back to the diamond, waiting for a pinch hitter to replace him. The impending maneuver appeared obvious to so many inside Fenway Park, except, perhaps, for the man behind the controls inside the Royals dugout. Into the sixth inning of an eventual 5-4 Royals loss stepped Jonny Gomes, and with one simple stroke, Boston manager John Farrell had out-foxed his counterpart, Ned Yost.
