The 2018 American League Championship Series features teams with the two best records in baseball, with the defending World Series champion Houston Astros facing off with the best-record-in-baseball Boston Red Sox.
The series begins Saturday at Fenway Park in Boston (8:09 p.m. ET, TBS).
Astros vs. Red Sox is a rematch of last year’s AL Division Series, won by the Astros in four games. That was the only previous playoff matchup between the two teams.
The Red Sox (108) and Astros (103) set franchise records for wins in 2018, and their 211 combined victories are tied with the 2001 ALCS (Mariners-Yankees) for the second-most in a single postseason series, trailing only the 1998 World Series (Yankees-Padres, 212).
The Astros dominated the Indians in the AL Division Series, outscoring them 21-6 in a three-game sweep. The Red Sox outlasted the Yankees in four games, including handing New York its worst postseason defeat ever in Game 3’s 16-1 triumph.
