The 2018 American League Championship banner has been raised outside Fenway Park.

Earning their second banner of the season — this time without incident — the Red Sox clinched the ALCS title on Thursday night, beating the Houston Astros 4-1 in five games.

The Sox now refocus their efforts onto the World Series, which will begin Tuesday night at Fenway. They’ll face either the Los Angeles Dodgers (leading 3-2) or the Milwaukee Brewers.

After Thursday night’s celebration, the Sox are back in Boston with a few days of rest ahead before gearing up for Tuesday’s game.
