vs. Detroit Tigers
at Tiger Stadium

vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

On the same day that Stu Holcomb parted ways with the team, the Sox went out and lost a 2-1 heartbreaker to the Royals in Kansas City. Steve Stone had pitched a brilliant 7.1 innings of shutout ball, but Terry Forster couldn't hold a 1-0 lead in the 9th; the Royals tied it and won in the 10th. The loss put the Sox at 50-51, the first time they were below .500 since they had been 3-4 in early April.
