Sox Clinch Party On Hold [VIDEO]
No champagne yet for the Boston Red Sox. A 6-4 loss to the Yankees and a Toronto 5-1 win over Baltimore means the magic number to clinch stays at one.
Simply put, the Yanks seem to have the secret sauce against David Price. He gave up three home runs, 12 hits and six runs last night in 6.1 innings. His ERA against the Yankees this year is 7.89.
Rookie Tyler Austin hit the game winning two run homer off Price in 7th innning.
And then there is David Ortiz. An 0-for-5 night with two strikeouts, including a game ending K with two runners on.
So the 11 game win streak ends and the Sox try again tonight to clinch the AL East. The Red Sox take on the Yankees with the pregame starting at 6:20 and 1st pitch at 7:05 on AM 1370 WDEA. Clay Buchholz takes the mound for the Sox.
