So much for the Boston Red Sox collapse. The New York Yankees had pulled to within four games a week ago, but Boston is now ahead by 7 1/2 as we head into the season's final five weeks. The Red Sox swept the White Sox in four games. AP sums up how dominant Boston was:
The Red Sox outscored Chicago 46-7 in the series. Boston scored at least 10 runs in each game, only the fourth time that has happened in a four-game series since 1900, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. It's the first time it has happened in the American League in 85 years.
