    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora got two big gifts for his 43rd birthday.

    He got not one, but two American League Championship Series wins - one around 1:15 a.m. Thursday when the Sox beat the Astros 8-6 in Game 4, and another about 23 hours later when the Sox beat the Astros 4-1 in Game 5 around 11:40 p.m. to clinch a trip to the World Series.

    After their huge Game 5 win -- and before the champagne bottles were popped -- Red Sox players surrounded Cora in the clubhouse and heartily sang "Happy Birthday!"

    Wearing goggles and championship gear, the team saluted the first manager from Puerto Rico to lead a team to the World Series. 

    You can watch all of the craziness in the video above.
