Good morning. The sun is shining. A crisp, cool chill is in the air. And the Red Sox are going to the World Series.

After beating the Astros 4-1 in Game 5, the Boston locked down the ALCS last night in Houston. And it sure does feel good.

It was an especially big night for David Price, whose performance has given critics a lot to think about.

For his part, Price has his eyes on the future: “Now we have another series to win,” he said.

I mean, who could ask for a better birthday present for manager Alex Cora?

If you get the chance, make sure you take a stroll past Fenway today. We hear they’ve got some new decor.

Even Justin Timberlake is feeling it, getting a chant going during his stop at the Garden.

Some of the credit, of course, goes to Concord native Steve Carell, who’s in town promoting his new movie.

It’s also a very big day for VP of Ballpark Operations Peter Nesbit. A round of applause for VP of Ballpark Operations Peter Nesbit.

And to Sox fans everywhere, start spreading the news:

On to the #WorldSeries! Congratulations @redsox! #DoDamage
