BOSTON – The Sox have eliminated their two biggest division rivals – the Yankees and the Rays – from the playoffs.
Now the Sox are waiting to see who they play next. It’ll either be the Houston Astros – Alex Cora’s former team – or the Chicago White Sox – which is Chris Sale’s former team. Houston currently leads the series 2-1.
This year, the Sox could face Houston again if the Astros win one more game against Chicago. If they don’t, the Red Sox and White Sox will face off for the first time in the playoffs since 2005, when the eventual World Series-winning White Sox swept Boston in the ALDS, 3-0.
ALCS Game 1 is scheduled for Friday night, Boston 25.
