Red Sox Clinch Playoff Spot

The Red Sox are the first team to lock up a postseason spot in Major League Baseball.  Boston clinched at least a wild card spot with a 7-2 win over Toronto at Fenway Park.  It will be the third straight playoff appearance for the Red Sox, whose magic number to clinch the AL East is nine.  Boston is 99-and-46, one win away from its first 100-win season since 1946.
