The World Series champion Boston Red Sox are back
in the playoffs, thanks to a 5-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians
on Tuesday night that clinched at least a wild-card berth.
Tim Wakefield outpitched Cliff Lee (22-3), and midseason
acquisition Jason Bay hit the go-ahead single as Boston scored
three times in the fifth inning to rally from a two-run deficit.
With the win, the Red Sox moved 6 games ahead of the New York
Yankees in the wild-card race with five games left. Boston still
has a chance to catch Tampa Bay in the AL East.
