The Red Sox have history on their side.
Under manager Terry Francona, the Red Sox are 8-1 in potential elimination games.
Since the ALCS became a best-of-seven series in 1985, six teams have taken a 3-2 edge into Game 6 with the home-field advantage. Three of those teams won Game 6 to advance to the World Series, one lost Game 6 but then won Game 7, and two teams lost both Games 6 and 7 at home.
The last time...when the Red Sox defeated the Yankees in 2004.
One game, one inning, one out at a time!!!
