Blown call in the AL East race

The Red Sox and Rays are in a tight battle for the AL East lead -- Boston's run differential kept it on top for much of the season, but Tampa Bay has been red-hot lately. A questionable call Monday night helped the Rays move a half-game ahead of the Red Sox after Daniel Nava was called out at home plate, even though replays showed that he was safe. The two clubs won't meet again until September at Tropicana Field -- by then, the landscape of the AL East could look quite different.
