The Boston Red Sox pulled even with the idle Toronto Blue Jays atop the American League East by defeating the Detroit Tigers, 3-2, yesterday evening. Tom Bolton held Detroit to an unearned run and four hits in seven innings. Mike Greenwell hit as two-run double in Boston's three-run fourth.

With six games remaining in the regular season, the Red Sox and Blue Jays have identical 84-72 records. They begin a three-game series in Boston tonight.

Cincinnati's magic number in the National League West is down to two. The Reds beat Atlanta 4-2 on the power of a two-run homer from Glenn Braggs.

Cincinnati now leads second-place Los Angeles by five games with six games remaining. The Dodgers were off yesterday.

The New York Mets shut out Montreal, 6-0, and stayed three games behind Pittsburgh in the National League East race. Ron Darling started and held the Expos to four hits over five innings to log his seventh victory. Montreal lost for the seventh time in a row.
