On October 7, 2005 — The White Sox complete a three-game postseason sweep of the Red Sox, defeating the defending World Series champion in Game 3 of the ALDS, 5-3. The Fenway Park victory marks the first time the Pale Hose have won a postseason series since 1917

After taking the first two games of the American League Divisional Series played at U.S. Cellular Field against the Boston Red Sox 14-2 and 5-4, the series moves to Fenway Park where the White Sox complete the sweep 5-3 when Paul Konerko hits a 2 run home run in the 6th inning, breaking a 2-2 tie, putting the Chi-Sox up 4-2 to stay as Freddy Garcia picks up the victory and Bobby Jenks gets the save, sending the White Sox to the Championship Series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
