Heading into the three-game set with the Blue Jays, the Sox are in first-place by a game, four games up on the third-place Rays, 4 1/2 over Baltimore, and 6...

It turns out the Red Sox didn't need to beat the Yankees after all. The Red Sox clinched the American League East on Wednesday when the Orioles rallied from a 2-1 deficit in the ninth inning to beat the Blue Jays, 3-2, in Toronto. It returns the Sox to the postseason as division champs for the...

Well that was a weird game. On one side, Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez allowed four hits -- all homers -- and failed to record a strikeout for just the second time in his career. On the other, Jays starter Marco Estrada took a no-hitter into the eighth before Chris Young ended it with a one-out...
