The 2004 American League Championship Series is remembered for the Red Sox’s historic comeback from a 3-0 deficit to stun the Yankees.

The most memorable moments were the Red Sox coming back against Mariano Rivers in Game 4, including Dave Roberts’ stolen base, followed by Bill Mueller’s liner back up the middle to score him with the tying run in the eighth inning; Ortiz’s walk-off homer that night; Curt Schilling’s heroic effort and his bloody sock in Game 6, and the Red Sox blowing out the Yankees 10-3 in Game 7.

(Gary Sanchez watching one of his home runs – @Yankees)

The Yankees, backed by a pair of home runs from Gary Sanchez and one from Aaron Judge, rolled to a 6-2 win over the Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALDS at Fenway Park to even the series.

The Yankees now have a chance to clinch the series at home, as the next two are at Yankee Stadium, Monday and Tuesday nights.

The Yankees were 6-0 at home in last year’s playoffs and won the Wild Card Game at The Stadium Wednesday night, so it is a realistic possibility that they can close it out at home and not have to return to Boston.
