John Smoltz worked out of jams in the first four innings, but a Wilson Betemit error in the fifth led to two unearned runs, and Smoltz was pulled with the game tied. The bullpen was unable to keep it that way as Atlanta dropped Sunday's rubber game at Fenway Park, giving Boston the series win.

Matt Clement stifled Atlanta in a stellar complete-game effort and improved to 5-0 in 2005. After tying it in the fifth on RBI singles by Kevin Youkilis and Bill Mueller, the Sox went ahead on David Ortiz's RBI double, and Manny Ramirez followed that with a two-run drive.
