The Sox and the Yankees are tied atop the American League East, with eight games left to play. The Sox beat the Orioles down at Camden Yards 4-3, on an Edgar Renteria bloop single in the top of the 9th. The hit drove in two runs, breaking a 2-2 tie.

Renteria has been one of the primary whipping boys for Red Sox Nation this year, as his subpar defense all season hasn't shown us that he's earning his $10 million. It was good to see him get a big hit in a big game.

Matt Clement started and left after six innings with a 2-0 lead. It wasn't as easy as it sounds, though, as Clement walked six and managed to walk the bases loaded in both the 2nd and 4th innings. He managed to wriggle out of both situations, but if he continues to pitch like this I'm going to have a stroke.

Meanwhile, the Empire fell to Toronto 7-4, all the runs coming off Jaret Wright, abetted by some poor Yankee defense. Wright only lasted 1+ inning. Meanwhile, the Indians lead the hapless Royals (I love the word "hapless") 6-1 in the 7th and the White Sox have already won, so it looks like Cleveland will maintain it's 1 and 1/2 game lead in the wild card race.

It's shaping up to be quite a week, don't you think?
