Red Sox jump to 10th in power rankings
Winners of six of their last seven, the Red Sox jumped a whopping 14 spots in this week's ESPN.com MLB Power Rankings to No. 10. They are still, however, just the fourth-highest-ranked team in the AL East, behind the Rays (No. 3), Yankees (No. 6) and Blue Jays (No. 9). The first-place Orioles are actually the lowest ranked team in the division at No. 12.
