WATCH: Red Sox Players Sing ‘Happy Birthday' to Alex Cora After Clinching Trip to World Series

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.
