Red Sox hit 100 wins

BOSTON—The scoreboards at Fenway Park all were flashing “100 WINS” to celebrate the Red Sox reaching the milestone for the first time since Ted Williams returned from World War II.

But David Price already was thinking about No. 101.

“That's what we've done all year,” Price said last night after pitching seven innings of three-hit ball to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 1-0.

Red Sox inch closer to division title

BOSTON—Rick Porcello struggled in his final playoff tune-up.

No matter, he had another AL Cy Young winner to bail him out.

Porcello gave up three runs in the first inning, and five in all, but David Price came out of the bullpen with four-straight outs to help the Boston Red Sox top Toronto 10-7 last night and lower their magic number to two to clinch the AL East title.
