The odds still fall in favor of the Red Sox clinching a playoff berth.
But at this point, how much will it really matter?
Boston lost yet again last night, coughing up another late lead in a 6-4 defeat at the hands of the
Orioles. It was the last game of the regular season at Fenway Park — and the third loss in a humiliating four-game series.

The Sox entered the game with a 2.5-game lead in the wild card, thanks to the Rays dropping the front end of a day-night doubleheader at New York. The nightcap ended too late for this edition after a lengthy rain delay.
Boston looked poised to all but knock Tampa Bay out of the race last night, taking a 4-1 lead into the sixth. But the Orioles put together five runs in three innings, all off starter Josh Beckett.
A no-name Baltimore bullpen held the line.
The Sox, who have lost 12 of their last 15, have today off before heading to the Bronx.
