Before the Red Sox-Angels series at Fenway Park, I was thinking sweep. If Boston was going to make a move, it needed to sweep LA.
But the broom was held by the other team, as the Angels won a 14-13 marathon Thursday for three straight wins at Fenway.
Below are the standings, which have been extended to include the Eastern League East Division (I know the league calls it the Eastern Division, but that's just silly).
In the EL East, the once-last-place Portland Sea Dogs are making it a race for one of two playoff spots available.
Portland beat Binghamton 14-9 Thursday night, continuing the surge. See THE STORY.
And now for the standings:
Rays 70-55 (2.5 back)
Orioles 67-57 (5)
Red Sox 59-66 (13.5)
Blue Jays 56-68 (11)
Angels 64-60 (2.5)
Mariners 61-64 (6.5)
Red Sox 59-65 (8.5)
EASTERN LEAGUE EAST
(Top 2 make playoffs)
Reading 69-62 (5 back)
New Britain 68-63 (6 back)
Portland 64-66 (9.5)
