It’s a special bunch! Against most of the projections and odds at the beginning of the year, the Sox defeated the Tampa Bay Rays again in game four of the American League Division Series. With the victory, they clinch the series win and move on to the American League Championship Series to face the Houston Astros.
I have been on several playoff runs in my time here, each with their own special merits and qualities. This one is no exception. Hard to explain the magic this team has found!
The Boston Red Sox defeated the Washington Nationals in the final game of the 2021 regular season to clinch the top seed in the American League Wild Card standings ahead of the postseason. During the game, the Nationals recognized franchise cornerstone, Ryan Zimmerman, who may retire following this season. Following a dramatic come from behind victory, the Red Sox celebrated with champagne in the clubhouse. Great to be along for this ride again!
