The 2021 ALCS is the third time the Red Sox have been tied after 4 games of a championship series.. They lost in 2003 vs. NYY (4-3) and defeated Detroit in 2013 (4-2). This marks the 7th ALCS to be tied at 2-2 since the best-of-7 format began in 1985. – 6 of the clubs that won Game 5 went on to win the series (all except the 2017 Yankees vs. HOU).
