The greatest series the Sox ever played may have been the 1912 World Series against the New York Giants, which the Sox won in eight games.
Yes, eight. Game 2 at Fenway ended in a 6-6 tie due to darkness.
The Sox won a series that featured four one-run games, including Game 8, when they rallied for two runs in the bottom of the 10th against Giants Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson to win, 3-2.
So, this ALCS isn’t the first ongoing October drama the Red Sox have been involved in. But one way or the other, Saturday promises to be another memorable chapter in a series to savor.
