Red Sox (81-57)
2d, AL East (4 GB)
Wild card leaders
The Red Sox look to close out the rest of the pack on some familiar turf. They are 47-19 at the Fens and have 15 home games remaining, with only nine on the road. They'll host a three-game set with the Rays beginning Monday, then the pesky Blue Jays are in town for four. A crucial six-game swing to Tampa and Toronto begins Sept. 15, then the Sox wrap up the regular season at home with a pair of third-place teams, the Indians and Yankees.
