The results are in from the most recent Courier Publications/VillageSoup sports poll.

In the latest poll, we asked how the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees American League Divisional Series would be decided, and the majority felt the Sox would win, and the majority proved correct.

The majority was wrong, though, in how many games it would take Boston to beat New York, since the Sox won the series in four games with a 4-3 victory over the Yankees on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at Yankee Stadium.

Sixty percent of voters thought Boston would win in five games, while 20 percent thought the Red Sox would lose in five games.

Another 20 percent of voters were correct, as they picked Boston to win the series in four games.

This week our poll stays on the topic of the Red Sox, as Boston advances to the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros.

In our newest poll, we ask how the Red Sox series against Houston will be decided.
