The Red Sox suffered their first three-game sweep in Baltimore since 1974, dropping the finale of their series by a 3-2 count in 10 innings. The Orioles enjoyed their second walkoff win in three days when Ty Wigginton drove the game-winning double to deep left-center against Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, allowing Nick Markakis to score from second. The Orioles are now 4-2 against the Sox, and 3-16 against the rest of baseball.
The Sox wasted an excellent effort by starter Josh Beckett, who allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings. Beckett struck out six and walked none. But despite his second quality start of the season, he was left with a no-decision.

CLEVELAND — Rasheed Wallace has said all season that the playoffs are what motivates him, but after a disastrous regular season, the playoffs have been pretty much the same story for the Celtics prized free agent acquisition.
