The Boston Red Sox have beaten the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 at Fenway Park to advance to the American League Championship Series.

Shortstop Jed Lowrie had the game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth, helping the Red Sox seal the best-of-five American League Division Series 3-1.

They will meet their American League East rivals Tampa Bay for the right to advance to the World Series, after the Rays earlier beat the White Sox 6-2 in Chicago to wrap up their series 3-1.
