Honey, I Shrunk The Wild Card

It figures that a disputed call around the Pesky Pole would factor into this epic Red Sox collapse. They are now a half-game closer to handing the Rays the greatest September comeback in history, with their pathetic 6-5 loss to the AAAA franchise from Baltimore. David Ortiz sent a ringing shot down the right field line that caromed fair but was called foul by the umpiring crew. A run was lost—the eventual losing run.

In the second half of the twi-night doubleheader, the invincible John Lackey takes the hill. Can you say: ONE GAME LEAD?
