    The Boston Red Sox' 2005 season included the Boston Red Sox attempting to win the American League East in the American League. The Red Sox finished 95-67, with the same record as the New York Yankees. Because the Yankees won the head-to-head season series, they won the tie-breaker for the American League East division title, and the Red Sox, with the best record of a non-division winner, were designated as winners of the American League Wild Card.
