The Boston Red Sox were a mess for long stretches of the regular season. That’s what made advancing past the Rays to the ALCS all the sweeter.

The Red Sox are moving on to the ALCS after a second-straight walk-off win over the Rays in Game 4 of the ALDS.

It wasn’t easy. Boston had a 5-0 lead coming out of the third inning but watched it evaporate as Tampa Bay tied things up in the eighth.

In the end, Kiké Hernández made the Rays pay for pitching to him by continuing his postseason hot streak with a walk-off sacrifice fly to avoid extra innings.

He drove in the winning run and sent the city of Boston into ecstasy.

While the Red Sox grabbed the champagne and started celebrating in the clubhouse, Twitter went absolutely wild with glee over the victory.

For many, it was unbelievable to even see Boston in this spot.

I honestly cannot believe the Red Sox are in the ALCS.

But it did indeed happen and Boston fans couldn’t get enough of talking about the ALCS.

The Red Sox finished last in the AL East in 2020.

Others went the meme route.

Boston now gets to wait for their ALCS opponent. It’ll either be the White Sox or the Astros who have to make up their Game 4 on Tuesday because of a rain delay.

In the meantime, expect Boston to enjoy themselves and dream of even bigger victories down the line.
