With the Yankees struggling against the Blue Jays, the Red Sox need to try to open up a lead in the A.L. East. Currently looking well as a team, the Red Sox lost today against the Seattle Mariners,but have been hitting well out in Safeco Field. The Sox are playing the Athletics in the next series, and they might be in a bind by the time the red sox get out there since they are playing the team with the best record in the majors. So the next few days revolve around the Blue Jays,Yankees,Red Sox, Rangers,and Mariners to see what the lead will be then.
