Stat of the Day: The Sox are the only American League team to remain above .500 all season.

Notes: With 11 games left, the Red Sox have a 3.5 game lead over the Oakland A’s for the best record in the American League and nine-game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East. They have a chance to clinch a postseason spot tonight with a win, should the Indians lose to Kansas City … After sweeping the Yankees over the weekend, the Sox’ magic number to clinch the division is 4 … The Orioles are two games out in the wild-card race as they being a grueling stretch of 13 games in as many days to end the season, starting with seven straight on the road against the Sox and Rays. They face the Sox six times in the next two weeks … The Sox trail in the season series, 7-6, but they’ve won four of the past five, winning series in Boston in August and in Baltimore in July … Dempster is 1-1 with a 2.50 ERA in three starts against the Orioles this season … In his only start against the Sox this season, Feldman gave up four earned runs on six hits and two walks in five innings and took the loss … Over 30 games since Aug. 1, Daniel Nava is hitting .391 with 13 doubles, one home run, 11 RBIs, and 12 walks … Mike Napoli is hitting .438 with four doubles, five homers, and 13 RBIs in his past nine starts.
