The difference is the Tigers play nobody but the Twins and the Royals the rest of the way. The Sox draw the Angels, Cleveland and Tampa.
Big, BIG, difference...which is why Sox fans on this board were saying a month ago they had to have the biggest possible lead going into the final two weeks because of the schedule differences.
The Sox had chance after chance to extend that lead to four maybe even five games and did not.
It could wind up costing them badly.
