Red Sox aim to pad AL wild-card lead vs. visiting Mets

Before taking on the New York Yankees in a pivotal three-game series later in the week, the Boston Red Sox look to pad their American League wild-card lead during a two-game set with the visiting New York Mets beginning Tuesday.

The Red Sox (86-65) entered an off day Monday up one game on the Toronto Blue Jays for the top wild-card spot. The Yankees were 2 1/2 games back of Boston but remained in striking distance. Both rivals will play Monday as the Yankees host the Texas Rangers, while the Blue Jays are at the Tampa Bay Rays.

Boston has won five straight after sweeping the 100-loss Baltimore Orioles over the weekend. A short series against another losing club in the Mets (73-77) represents a similar opportunity.
