CHICAGO (AP) – Clay Buchholz outpitched Mark Buehrle and the
Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox 6-1 Monday night,
postponing a pair of clinching parties for their AL East rivals.
A Red Sox loss would've locked up playoff spots for the Tampa
Bay Rays and New York Yankees. Instead, Boston took an early lead
and pulled away while the Rays and Yankees lost.
The magic number remains at one for the Rays and Yankees to
reach the postseason.
David Ortiz, Victor Martinez and Adrian Beltre each drove in two
runs and Marco Scutaro scored three times for Boston.
