The 1993 American League Championship Series was played between the Eastern Division champion Toronto Blue Jays and the Western Division champion Chicago White Sox from October 5 to October 12. The defending world champion Blue Jays defeated the White Sox, 4-2, to advance to the 1993 World Series which they would win 4-2 over the Philadelphia Phillies thanks to Joe Carter's dramatic three-run walk-off home run in Game 6. The 1993 ALCS was the last played under the AL's two-division format before the league realigned into three divisions the following year.
Series MVP: Dave Stewart, Toronto
The Blue Jays finished the 1993 regular season with a 95-67 record (.586), good enough to win them their third consecutive Eastern division title. They clinched the division championship on September 27 in a 2-0 win against the Milwaukee Brewers in Milwaukee. The White Sox ended 1993 with a 94-68 record (.580) to claim the Western division crown. They too clinched the Western Division on September 27; the final score was 4-2 against the Seattle Mariners in Chicago. Both teams won their respective divisions by large margins: Toronto had a seven-game lead over the New York Yankees, and Chicago beat out the Texas Rangers by eight games.
