Red Sox 5, Reds 0: Eduardo Rodriguez continued to make his case for a spot in the Red Sox's postseason rotation. Rodriguez scattered three hits in 7 2/3 innings to lift Boston to its fifth consecutive victory and 13th win in the last 16 games. Rodriguez was in complete command. He didn't give up a hit until the fourth inning and didn't allow a runner to reach scoring position until the eighth. Mitch Moreland's three-run homer in the sixth inning was the big blow for the Red Sox, whose magic number to clinch the AL East now stands at 5.
