The White Sox completed the final piece of the playoff puzzle today, but the Angels already have their match set in hosting .

The Angels, facing the Sox for the third time in postseason history, have a chance to get back at the Red Sox for sweeping them out of the postseason last year in the ALDS. John Lackey will make the start in Game 1 and will face lefty¬†Jon Lester. Despite Lackey’s worst outing of the season in his last start, he ended up with a 12-5 record, including two wins against the Red Sox. Lackey also started in last year’s ALDS Game 1, but took a 4-0 loss to set the pace for the sweep. Lester went 16-6 with a 3.21 ERA this year, including a four-run, nine-hit start against the Angels back in April.
