Chris Sale dominated the Orioles for eight innings while Hanley Ramirez drove in three runs and Mookie Betts homered as the Red Sox swept the three-game series with a 9-0 win at Camden Yards Wednesday night.
The victory, combined with the Angels losing to Cleveland, clinched at least a Wild Card playoff spot for the Red Sox, who still have a three-game lead over the Yankees in the American League East.
Sale was back to form in earning his seventeenth win of the year. He struck out thirteen to reach the 300 strikeout mark, the first American League pitcher to do so since Pedro Martinez did it in 1999.
Ramirez had three hits for the Red Sox while Betts had two and scored three times.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
