And during the Red Sox's 16-2 win over the D-backs on Sunday, 98 Degrees -- performing just across the street at The House of Blues -- were in attendance. Along with doing play-by-play for an Andrew Benintendi at-bat, lead singer Nick Lachey, a homegrown Reds fan, gave his thoughts on where his band stood in the Boy Band power rankings: "We didn't necessarily win the division, but we were a strong Wild Card contender."
