One hundred and fifty four games, over thirteen hundred innings, and the Red Sox are dead even with the Yankees in the AL East. Eight days remaining to decide the winner.

Yesterday was evidence of why I still believe the Sox will capture the division and keep the Yankees out of the post-season.

Clement pitched just well enough to keep the Sox in the game, Wright did not do the same for the Yankees.

Mueller made a great play at third and the Red Sox played error-free baseball, turning three double-plays in the game. The Yankees committed two errors leading to three unearned runs.

Renteria came up with a clutch broken-bat hit to drive in the winning runs. A-Rod flied out harmlessly with two on and two out. On a sidenote, that at-bat is more evidence why Papi should take home the MVP award over A-Rod.

Today we get Wells versus Maine, they put Wang against Towers (in their final home game). Wells admitted he’s pitching hurt, but look for the bats to pick him up and get him a win.
