BALTIMORE -- The Boston Red Sox cleared their final standings hurdle only a few minutes into their game against the Baltimore Orioles, when the scoreboard in right field let everyone know that the AL East champions were assured of home-field advantage throughout the post-season. Authentic Joel Eriksson Ek Jersey . Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season. "I think everybody was kind of watching," catcher David Ross said. "Demp (Ryan Dempster) came out before he went to the bullpen and was just yelling that they lost. We were all laughing." The achievement didnt dampen the Red Soxs competitive spirit -- they came from behind late before losing Saturday nights game 6-5 to the Orioles -- but it was a result that hardly matters compared to the itinerary for next week. Boston will open its division series at Fenway Park on Friday against the winner of the wild-card playoff -- either Cleveland, Tampa Bay or Texas. "Wed have liked this game to finish up a little differently," manager John Farrell said. "But to know going into the post-season that for every series we go into, being able to play in front of Fenway fans and how comfortable and successful weve been at home, this is a good thing." Steve Pearce drove in the go-ahead runs with a double in the eighth inning for the Orioles, who earned a measure of consolation by becoming the only AL East team to win the season series against the Red Sox. Make that a very small consolation. "Id trade places with em," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said, "and have lost the series." The Orioles have won 10 of 18 from the Red Sox with one to play, the second consecutive year Baltimore has taken the season series. The rest of the AL East is 21-36 against the Red Sox this season. Pearces drive to the left field corner -- his second double of the game -- came off Franklin Morales and brought home two runs. Morales had replaced Junichi Tazawa (5-4), who gave up back-to-back singles to start the inning. Kevin Gausman (3-5) pitched 1 1-3 innings to get the win, and Jim Johnson pitched the ninth for his 49th save. The Red Sox threatened against Johnson when Mike Napoli hit a two-out single and pinch-runner Quintin Berry stole second, but Jonny Gomes was called out on strikes to end the game. Daniel Nava tied a career high with four hits, and Dustin Pedroia had three hits and an RBI for the Red Sox, who took a 5-4 lead with a pair of runs in the seventh. Boston starter Jon Lester gave up four runs and nine hits over five innings. He had gone nine starts without allowing a home run, but that streak was broken by Brian Roberts solo drive to lead off the third. The Orioles pieced together four singles to take a 4-2 lead, but David Ross double in the sixth cut the deficit to one and chased Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen. Chen allowed three runs and nine hits over 5 1-3 innings and ended up with his sixth consecutive no-decision. Notes: Lester flew home during the game to be with his wife, Farrah, whos scheduled to be induced with the couples second child Sunday morning. ... Showalter had a thin bench because of injuries to OF Michael Morse and INF Jonathan Schoop. Morse has possible ligament damage in his left wrist and will see a specialist to determine whether he needs surgery, and Schoop was examined after showing symptoms of a back injury. Showalter said Schoop will play in Sundays season finale. Authentic Alex Stalock Jersey . Hoefl-Rieschs exit — from the downhill course into safety nets, then airlifted from the slope by helicopter — left Anna Fenninger of Austria favourite to win her first giant crystal trophy one month after becoming an Olympic champion. Minnesota Wild Shop Free Shipping . J.J. Hardy drove in a run for the Orioles, who bounced back from an 8-4 loss in the series opener on Friday. Fresh off the 15-day disabled list, Derrek Lee went 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Jake Arrieta (7-3) gave up three runs on five hits over six innings to pick up the win. . On Tuesday, the star questioned whether that was still the case. Speaking to reporters at a charity event, Johnson said: "I just kind of wonder sometimes: Is this still the place for me?" Johnsons comments came after he was asked why he recently skipped a voluntary minicamp.Get it straight already... Last week, six days after sustaining a concussion, franchise quarterback Mike Reilly is rolled out by the Edmonton Eskimos in a must win game against the Montreal Alouettes. The Eskimos muzzled their “Top Dog”, virtually handcuffing the young quarterback by limiting what he does best: his ability to run, improvise, and attack a defence with his unmatched will to do whatever it takes to win. That plan went south in a hurry and by half time, Reilly was back in his cage. The next quarterback up for the Eskimos wasnt Kerry Joseph, who has 11 years of experience under his belt. Joseph only had two reps all week during practice. Im scratching my head right now. The Eskimos had planned all week long to go with Jonathan Crompton, a young and promising quarterback from the University of Tennessee. Problem was, Crompton had only thrown 22 career passes in the CFL heading into that must win game! Let me recap: you toil with the decision to start your franchise quarterback after he sustained a concussion just six days ago, limit his package – removing what he does best, dont practice or play your experienced gunslinger, and go with a virtual rookie in a must win game! Wow, I know theres no giving an inch or concessions in football, but on behalf of the dwindling fan base, what is going on? Now this week, with the playoffs virtually out of reach and the season almost over, you want to remove the muzzle on Reilly and set him free to attack the game – likke he should have been last week – and risk further meaningless injury? I dont get it! Now is the time to get Crompton the reps he was given last week. Authentic Carson Soucy Jersey. Again, Im scratching my head here. I know there is a disconnect between management and coaches with who is second on the depth chart and thats why we saw Crompton last week instead of Joseph in a must win game. But how about dealing with your No. 1 quarterback properly? If he was cleared to play last week by third party doctors, then why the muzzle and shackles in a must win game? Manage play calling to keep him out of harms way and make certain he was not exposed to protection breakdowns. What? Are we still talking about the same team? Reilly is an old school quarterback. Hes a warrior and hes proven he can compete, win, and lead this franchise. Its been a long season; rest your star! Now is the time, and for the next four weeks, to see what you have in Crompton. If Joseph is not in the cards for the future, move Jacory Harris onto the active roster and see what hes got to offer too! Head coach Kavis Reed knows all about the seriousness of injuries in football; he was forced to retire prematurely with a neck injury. Not only that, Reed is as passionate as they come in the coaching ranks. Hes uniquely dialed in to his players, both on and off the field. Simply put, he cares! So do I! Sometimes you are too close to the trees to see through the forest. So I ask, why Reilly now? More head scratching...
