Red Sox Inch Closer To Title Despite Pounding By 'Stros

Eduardo Rodriguez did not raise his post-season stock much last night in a 12-2 defeat at the hands of Boston's likely ALDS opponents. E-Rod lasted just 1.2 innings—coughing up five earned runs. Boston's meager offense mustered just two runs on six hits (compared to Houston's 17). Xander Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland (HR) had the RBIs. Luckily, The Evil Ones choked in the Bronx, so the Magic Number to capture the AL East flag is down to one. (Getty Images)
