Boston 's magic number entering Monday's action is a whopping 17, quite high given where we are in the regular season. This is because, for all of the Yankees' faults and Boston 's second-half strengths combined, the Red Sox have just not been able to widen the gap. It's as though the AL East race is the famed James Bond film Goldeneye, with Boston playing the role of supervillain Alec Trevelyan (Sorry, Red Sox fans!) and New York being 007.

They probably will be because, despite a late run, the Boston Red Sox are still in good shape to hold off the Yankees for the AL East championship. After gaining a game on the Red Sox two days in a row, the Yankees didn't pick up any ground on Wednesday when they beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-1 and Boston beat Toronto 10-7 to salvage the final game of a three-game series against the Blue Jays at Fenway Park.
