BOSTON -- The Astros looked to be in danger of going back to Houston for a winner-take-all Game 5 of this American League Division Series presented by Doosan, but instead they are headed home to prepare for the AL Championship Series.
It was Houston that outlasted the Red Sox, 5-4, in a wild Game 4 at Fenway Park on Monday afternoon.
Full Game Coverage
Backed by a game-tying homer by Alex Bregman off Red Sox ace Chris Sale to lead off the eighth and a two-out RBI single later in the inning by Josh Reddick off closer Craig Kimbrel, the Astros won their first postseason series since the 2005 National League Championship Series and will face either the Yankees or the Indians in the ALCS presented by Camping World.
