The Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros will square off in the American League Championship Series beginning Friday night.

It's the second time in the last four years that these two AL powerhouses have met in the ALCS. The most recent meeting was the 2018 ALCS when the Red Sox eliminated the Astros in a dramatic Game 5 highlighted by then-Boston left fielder Andrew Benintendi making a game-winning diving catch in the bottom of the ninth inning.

The Red Sox went on to defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series.
