Red Sox update

Trying to hold off the New York Yankees in the American League East, the Red Sox won four in a row before dropping last night's game against Toronto. Boston has won 10 of 16 and is 14-9 since Aug. 14 and 31-22 since the break. The Red Sox have the best winning percentage in the majors at .600 and the most victories with 84. Mike Lowell's 16-game hitting streak ended Tuesday. His 101 RBIs lead the team and rank fourth in the league. Closer Jon Papelbon has registered 12 2/3 scoreless innings while converting all 10 save opportunities over 13 appearances. Manny Ramirez hasn't played since Aug. 28 because of a strained left oblique muscle. Boston is 9-5 against the Orioles this season, including Clay Buchholz's no-hitter Saturday. The rotation is so deep, Buchholz was sent to the bullpen.
