Boston Strong! The Sox struck October magic once again, as they defeated the Detroit Tigers 5-2 in game six of the American League Championship Series on Oct. 19 to take the series and the AL pennant. Now just one team stands between them and a championship.

With one swing of the bat, the Boston Red Sox propelled themselves ahead of the Detroit Tigers and into the 2013 World Series on Oct. 19. And after claiming the American League title in six games, the rugged Boston team is just one series away from winning the whole thing.

Boston Red Sox Win The ALCS

It wasn’t looking good for the Red Sox on Oct. 19. Down 2-1 in the seventh inning, facing Max Scherzer, the league’s best pitcher, the Red Sox managed to load the bases with one out, when Shane Victorino stepped up to the plate.

With an 0-2 count against him, Shane got a curveball that he ripped over Fenway Park’s Green Monster for a dramatic grand slam, giving the Red Sox a 5-2 lead that they would never give up.

After closer Koji Uehara got a strikeout to end the game and the Tigers’ season, the Boston team rushed the field for a jubilant celebration. Later in the clubhouse, they rang in their ALCS win with the traditional champagne baths.

Boston Red Sox: World Series Up Next

It’s been a magical season for the Red Sox, and it appears that that’s going to continue as they head to the World Series. They came into 2013 with mediocre expectations, but on the back of a few rag-tag team leaders and the Boston Strong movement, which of course began after the bombing tragedy the city experienced at the Boston Marathon on Apr. 15, the Sox have come together and look very tough to beat.

The St. Louis Cardinals, who won the National League on Oct. 18, are now the last team in the Red Sox’s way. We’ll find out on Oct. 23, when the World Series begins, which team is up to the challenge.

But with everything that Boston has gone through, the Red Sox just appear to be a team of destiny.
