For the first time since 2008 the Boston Red Sox are on their way to the American League Championship Series. The Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Division Series, 3 games to 1. Boston put an end to Tampa Bay's season with 3-1 win at Tropicana Field on Tuesday night. Game 1 of the ALCS takes place tomorrow night at 8:00 pm as the Red Sox host the Detroit Tigers.
Everything seems to be clicking for the Red Sox, with David Ortiz hitting 2 home runs and Dustin Pedroia getting 5 RBIs in the ALDS. It seems like hiring former Sox pitching coach John Farrell as the new manager was a smart move by Boston's front office.
Jon Lester (1-0 in the postseason) will be taking on Anibal Sanchez (0-1) in game one.
