TSM Game of the Night

College of Sports Media Game of the Night:

There’s less then 20 games left in the baseball season and other then the NL wild card race and perhaps the AL Central it seems like what we see is what will get in the hunt for October. In the American League the New Yankees have a six and a half game lead over the second place Boston Red Sox. Those same Sox lead the AL wild card by six and a half over the Texas Rangers. Texas trail the Los Angeles Angels by six games. Tonight the Red Sox and the Angels wrap up their three game set in  Boston. The Bo Sox have taken the first two games, including a dramatic walk off 9-8 win last night. Boston gives their ace Josh Beckett (15-6) the ball and the chance to wrap up the series sweep. The Angels counter with Ervin Santana (7-8). Tonight may not be as much about the regular season standings, but more about having a mental edge over a possible opponent in the playoffs.
