BOSTON (AP) -- J.D. Drew and Mike Lowell hit grand slams to help
Diasuke Matsuzaka remain unbeaten, and the Boston Red Sox completed
a sweep of their seven-game homestand with an 11-8 win over the
Kansas City Royals on Thursday.
They were the first Red Sox players to hit slams in the same
game at Fenway Park since Tony Armas and Bill Buckner did it Aug.
7, 1984. The last time Boston had two slams in a game was when the
switch-hitting Bill Mueller hit both -- one from each side -- at
Texas on July 29, 2003.
Boston's seven wins comes after it dropped the final four of a
4-6 road trip. The Red Sox open 10-game trip in Oakland on Friday
night.
