Will Middlebrooks homered down each of the lines, David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia also went deep, and the Boston Red Sox pounded the Kansas City Royals 11-5 on Monday night to snap a five-game losing streak.

Middlebrooks, called up last week when Kevin Youkilis went on
the disabled list, hit a three-run shot in the first inning and a
two-run homer in the eighth, becoming the first player in Red Sox
history with at least one extra-base hit in each of his first four
major league games.

He also hit a grand slam in Boston's 17-inning loss to Baltimore
the previous night.

Felix Doubront (2-1) allowed all five Kansas City runs over 6
1-3 innings, giving the Red Sox bullpen a much-needed rest. Boston
used up every available arm against the Orioles, forcing
left-fielder Darnell McDonald to finish the 9-6 defeat.

The Royals' Jonathan Sanchez (1-2) was pounded for six runs in three-plus innings, the 11th straight time the former Giants
starter failed to last more than five innings.
