Red Sox-Royals: Boston's Magic Number Down to Three with Win Over Kansas City

Is it time to be really excited yet?

Clay Buchholz went 6 2/3 innings and allowed no runs on five hits with eight strikeouts as the Boston Red Sox split a four-game series with the Kansas City Royals with a 10-3 win Thursday night.

The combination of a Red Sox win and Texas Rangers loss to the Oakland Athletics drops the magic number to clinch the American League Wild Card to three games.

Boston travels to New York to take on the Yankees for three games in the Bronx, and the Rangers will host the Tampa Bay Rays Friday-Sunday.

The Sox playoff starting rotation is really starting to take form with the trio of Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, and Buchholz.

Best 1-2-3 punch ever? It just might be.
