Does a two game losing streak constitute a slump? For the Kansas City Royals in 2003 it does. They dropped their second straight with a 7-2 loss at Boston. The Royals took a 2-0 lead with Carlos Beltran’s inside the park homer in the thid and Mike DiFelice’s tradtional round-tripper in the fourth. But starter Chris George allowed a run in the fifth and three more in the sixth to surrender the lead. The Red Sox piled on with three more in the bottom of the ninth to put it out of reach. George, who dropped to 3-2 on the season lasted 5 1/3 innings, was charged with three earned runs to get the loss. Tim Wakefield went six for the Sox to get his third win of the season. Tonight’s game has been moved one hour from 5:05 local time to 6:05.
