The '78 Yankees and Red Sox were close for the last few weeks of the season...don't remember how long. Ended in a playoff when Catfish Hunter lost the last game of the regular season.

Yes, but the Sox fell 4 games back with 2 weeks left before catching the NYY. It was the NYY rush to first, then it was the Sox comeback once they benched Butch Hobson and pitched Bill Lee.
