With the White Sox's sweep of the Indians, Boston locks up wild card yet again. The Indians completely collapsed its season finale by 3-1 to the Chicago White Sox adding another uncanny chapter to the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry and hitting the headlines. The Sox celebrated after clinching the wild card berth celebrated their victory in the same way the Yankees did. They danced on the Fenway Park turf, and then disappeared into their clubhouse where they cut loose themselves and sprayed the champagne. The entire weekend was a complete package of mystery, fun and an odd feel, recording probably the most-hyped regular-season series in history. The Red Sox and Yankees each finished with records of 95-67, but the division title went to the Yankees because they went 10-9 against the Red Sox. It was the Indians' loss on Saturday that gave them the Yankees division title victory. It was the Indians loss on Sunday that gave the Red Sox won the wild card berth. The loss concluded a disastrous final week for the Indians.
