Red Sox shut out Royals 6-0, sweep three-game series

The Royals followed a deflating but predictable script, offering little resistance as they were overwhelmed by Jon Lester and the Red Sox in a 6-0 defeat. Boston completed the sweep with ease, as Lester strung together eight spotless innings, rookie Yordano Ventura combusted and the Royals (48-49) sunk beneath .500 for the first time since June 9.
