Boston’s September Swoon Continues

89-71…160 games into the season and the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays possess identical records going into the final two games of the season.

The fact that both teams share the same record is astonishing giving that the Red Sox held a 9-game lead going into September. Boston’s historic swoon may result in the greatest collapse in MLB history if they do not make the playoffs.

Up a game going into Monday, the Sox lost to the Baltimore Orioles 6-3, while the Rays defeated the New York Yankees 5-2. Boston will send Erik Bedard to the mound Tuesday in hopes of securing a victory over his former team. If both teams finish the season tied then there would be a one game playoff at the Trop in St. Petersburg, FL.
