The Red Sox are moving on to the American League Division Series after beating the Yankees 6-2 in the Wild Card game at Fenway Park.

Tuesday night's game will decide who makes it to the American League Division Series, which begins Thursday, to take on the Tampa Bay Rays. The last time the Sox won the AL Division Series was in 2018.

This will be the fifth time these historic rivals are playing in the post-season. Both teams have identical records this season: 92-70. In a series of press conferences, players on either side have said they’re ready to bring it Tuesday night.

"It’s going to be nuts," Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo said. "I’ll tell you what, it’s better than being at the Yankees for sure. The fact that we get our home field advantage and all that, that’s what we ask for.”

“That’s going to be a fun game right there, that’s going to be action packed. They’re going to bring their a game," Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge said. “We’re going to bring our a game. It’s just going to be another great game in this big rivalry we have."
