Indians keep Red Sox from clinching with 4-3 win

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox will have to wait at least one more day to clinch their fifth postseason trip in six years.

Rookie Zach Jackson pitched six solid innings and the Cleveland Indians beat Josh Beckett and the Red Sox 4-3 Monday night with the help of a bizarre play involving the third base umpire.

Beckett (12-10) struggled with his control, hitting a career-worst three batters, throwing a wild pitch and walking in a run.

Boston had a chance to win in the ninth when Kevin Youkilis singled with two outs and took third on Jason Bay’s double. But Jed Lowrie struck out on three pitches against Jensen Lewis, who got his 12th save in 13 opportunities.
