In the final game of a best-of-five Major League Baseball Divisional Series, the Boston Red Sox held on in a nail-biter to defeat the Oakland Athletics 4-3.

The Sox will now face the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series, beginning at Wednesday night.

The National League Championship Series begins tonight, with the Chicago Cubs facing off against the Florida Marlins.
