Red Sox Drop Series in Baltimore, Now in Three Way Tie for Second Wild Card

The Boston Red Sox were dealt another blow in their postseason push by last-place Baltimore, with Ryan Mountcastle hitting a three-run homer in the third inning of the Orioles’ 6-2 win. Baltimore has lost 107 games this year but took two of three in this series against Boston — welcome news for the Mariners, Blue Jays and Yankees. The Red Sox fell into a tie with Seattle for the American League’s second wild card. Boston trails the New York by two games for the first wild card and leads Toronto by one.
