Red Sox Win Game 4, Advance To ALCS

Jonathan Grant | October 12th, 2021

The Boston Red Sox is heading to the ALCS. That was confirmed on Monday night after a 6-5 victory in Game 4 over the Tampa Bay Rays. It was anything but simple, however, in typical Red Sox fashion. Rafael Devers homered in the third, driving in himself and two others in the process, as a part of a five-run inning. That gave them, surely, the ammunition they needed to win. But the Rays, the team that had won the AL East over three other teams that had won over 90 games each, were not going to give it up that easily.

Wander Franco hit a two-run shot in the sixth to get the score down to 5-3 and they completed the comeback in the eighth when Kevin Kiermaier doubled and Randy Arozarena singled in RBI’s. At five apiece, the Red Sox were now going to have to do it all again. They did just that, as walking it off for the second straight evening at Fenway Park via Enrique Hernandez’s sacrifice fly. That made it three consecutive wins for the Red Sox, and it means they will now await the winner of the Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros. Houston leads 2-1 in that series following a weather delay on Monday that pushed Game 4 back to Tuesday.
