BOSTON — Things were looking bleak for the Boston Red Sox last week. After losing 5-0 to Tampa Bay in Game 1 of their American League Division Series, the team gave up five runs in the first inning of Game 2. After that point, the Sox bats heated up. They outscored the Rays 24-10 and won three straight games to advance to the American League Championship Series. The Red Sox got some timely hitting as well, winning Games 3 and 4 in walk-off fashion.
Boston takes on Houston in the ALCS. The teams have met twice in the playoffs recently, with the Astros knocking out the Red Sox in the 2017 ALDS before Boston returned the favor in the 2018 ALCS. Both teams have been punished for stealing signs in the past.
