The Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros are playing for the American League pennant in the 2021 ALCS.

The Astros won Game 4 of the series, levelling the teams at 2-2 with Game 5 taking place on Wednesday afternoon at Fenway Park.

Astros hosted Games 1 and 2 and, if necessary, Games 6 and 7. Games 3, 4, and 5 will be atFenway Park.

The ALDS is played in a 2-3-2 format where the team with the better regular-season record gets home field for Games 1, 2, 5, 6 and 7. The Astros finished at 95-67, winning the AL West by five games over the Seattle Mariners (90-72), so the series began at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.

With the series tied 2-2, both teams will turn to their Game 1 starters. Houston will send Framber Valdez to the mound in an attempt to take a 3-2 series lead back to Minute Maid Park. Valdez lasted just two and two-thirds innings in Game 1, allowing three runs, two of them earned, on six hits.

The Red Sox will go with Chris Sale for the final game of the series in Boston.
