HOUSTON -- Over the course of the Red Sox' record-setting 108-win season, the Red Sox were so successful at Fenway that it was sometimes easy to forget just how accomplished they were away from home.

Through three road games this postseason, the Red Sox are providing a reminder.

Hint: they're good on the road. Really good.

The Sox swept both games at Yankee Stadium to wrap up their American League Division Series with New York, and that roll continued Tuesday night with an 8-2 thrashing of the Houston Astros in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series.

Just how rare is an October victory for the road team at Minute Maid Park?
