The Red Sox got three hit, shutout pitching from Eduardo Rodriguez for 7.2 innings and Mitch Moreland blasted a three-run home run as the Sox beat the Reds 5-0 Saturday afternoon.
Even with a Yankee win over Toronto, the Sox magic number to clinch the division drops to five.
E-Rod may have had his best outing of the year. He scattered the three hits, walked two and struck out six.
Moreland’s homer in the 6th inning was the key hit.
The game in Cincinnati did feature something special for the John Farrell family. His son, Luke, pitched the 9th inning for the Reds.
The Sox are now 7-1 on this last roadtrip of the season with one more Sunday.
