Boston will travel to Houston for Game 1 on Friday


October 12, 2021

The Houston Astros advanced to the American League Championship Series following a Game 4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday afternoon, and in doing so earned a date with the Boston Red Sox.

Houston defeated Chicago in the best-of-five series 3-1 to eliminate the White Sox one night after Boston did the same to the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Red Sox, as you almost certainly have heard, claimed an identical 3-1 series win following consecutive walk-off victories over the 100-win Rays.

Boston and Houston now will play for the ALCS in the best-of-seven series. The Astros, who entered the postseason as the second seed behind the Rays, will have home-field advantage.
