Wild card is still there for Red Sox to seize

As of Tuesday morning, the Tigers (59-50) and Angels (59-51) led the American League wild-card race with the Athletics (58-51) and Orioles (58-51) right behind. Then came the Rays (56-52).

The Red Sox (55-55) were four games behind the Angels and while that doesn’t seem like a lot with 52 games left to play, the problem is passing four other teams.
