The lead is three. The magic number is 12. Let’s get this.

Twelve Red Sox wins or Yankees losses until the Sox capture the division. Seven wins or Twins losses until the Sox clinch the wild card. No time to dally. It’s Eduardo Rodriguez against the pesky Jake Odorizzi in, barring a miracle Rays playoff run, the last time we play Tampa Bay this year. So sad. Let’s get it on. 1:35 p.m.

Here are the full lineups:
