OK, here we go: if you are looking for pennant races, certain teams have to win tonight. All times Eastern.
7 p.m., NESN, RSN: Blue Jays at Red Sox. Same thing for Boston: 9-7 against Toronto this year, 5-1 at Fenway Park. If patterns hold, we could be in a holding one until the Rays and Red Sox meet later this week.
10 p.m., FSN West, CSN California: Angels at Athletics. If a pennant race game is played and no one is there to watch it, did it really happen? Just 12,858 paid in Oakland Monday night; maybe one-third of those showed up.
