On a night when the Boston offense had absolutely no life, the Red Sox still managed to win, courtesy of a bases-loaded wild pitch in the top of the eleventh inning that allowed Jackie Bradley Jr. (pictured) to score.

The Red Sox improved to 15-3 in extra-inning games this season and the Magic Number to clinch a playoff spot is now down to two.

While Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman was shutting down the Red Sox on just three hits over eight innings, Boston starter Drew Pomeranz was just as stingy, holding the O's scoreless on five hits over 6.1 innings.

Joe Kelly was the winner in relief with Matt Barnes picking up his first save.
