The Boston Red Sox, after coming back from a (reminiscent) 3-1 series deficit, last night beat the Cleveland Indians 11-2 to win the AL Championship Series and secure a spot in the World Series for the second time in four years.

The Red Sox held a close 3-2 lead until the seventh inning, when Dustin Pedroia hit a 2-run homer to bring their lead to 5-2. Six runs in the eighth inning clinched the win, with Jonathan Papelbon -- looking focused and intense in the dugout -- coming in to get the save.

The Sox will take on the Colorado Rockies in the World Series starting at 8pm EST on Wednesday, 10/24. Save me a seat at Sonny's!!
