Game Story: Royals take series finale, 4-3

BOSTON The Red Sox entered the day winning at a .646 clip they havent maintained through a full baseball season since 1946.

Its a rocket-fueled pace theyll be hard-pressed to keep up, and Terry Franconas Boys of Summer slid back a little bit Thursday afternoon with a tight 4-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals at Fenway Park.

Josh Beckett was saddled with his fourth loss of the season due to one bad frame in the fourth innning, and the Sox bats couldnt quite solve the Royals pitching after bombing them the two previous evenings.

Beckett was cruising until the fourth inning when a pair of walks to start the frame came back to haunt him. He made a few pitches to get ahead of Royals first baseman, but the country strong slugger smashed a low, outside fastball into the left field stands for a three-run bomb that jerked the lead away from Boston.

Red Sox outfield "Win, Dance, Repeat" celebration finds its way on MLB the Show 17

Mooke Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and a mix of Andrew Benintendi, Brock Holt, Blake Swihart and Chris Young brought postgame celebrations to a new level last season.

Most Sox fans are familiar with the outfield victory "Win, Dance, Repeat" where the trio would dance and pretend to photograph the game's best player between them. The celebration ended with a pose at first, but as seen the MLB the Show 17's freshly released trailer, a few more wrinkes were added in.

In fact, here's a taste of the celebrations and what else to expect from Playstation's 2017 MLB game:
