Red Sox Pennant

October 19, 2018

The Boston Red Sox won their 14th American League Pennant (13th with a subsequent World Series, they are (8-4) in previous W.S.–winning their first 5, 3 with Babe Ruth on their team. They lost their next 4, all in the maximum 7 games, two to 108 win teams, a lofty total the ‘2018 Red Sox achieved, during an 86 year title drought. They have won their last 3 W.S.) last night winning (4-1) at Houston eliminating the defending champion Astros.

Jackie Bradley Jr. was named ALCS MVP while David Price, whose stellar relief effort stymied the defending World champion Red Sox in game 7 of the 2008 ALCS, gained his first post-season victory as a starting pitcher.

The game 5 winner in a Red Sox LCS is (7-1) in the series, losing only in 2008.

Meanwhile the Astros (1-5) in game 5 of an LCS have never won both game 5 and said LCS.

It was a good follow up, 103 win season and “div series” sweep for the Astros while the Red Sox need 4 W.S. wins vs the Dodgers or Brewers (likely the former which leads (3-2), to complete a truly fabulous, even historic season.

 

There was no World Series in 1904, the year the franchise then known as the Boston Americans won their second A.L. crown.
