Red Sox Can't Close Out Sweep; Rays Lead Is A Half Game

The Red Sox had a lead going into the bottom of the ninth against the Yankees but ended up losing the lead and walking in a run in the 10th inning to lose, 4-3. So the end result from the weekend is the Rays are in first place after taking two of three against the Mariners, the Red Sox are basically done in spite of taking two of three from the Yankees and the Magic Numbers look like this...


Rays: Wild Card = 1, Division = 6

Yankees: Wild Card = 1, Division = 7
