During the 2017 ALCS, Cora interviewed for the open managerial position of the Boston Red Sox. It was subsequently reported that Cora would be named as Red Sox manager. On October 22, the day after the Astros defeated the New York Yankees in the 2017 ALCS, the Red Sox announced a three-year managerial contract for Cora, for the 2018 through 2020 seasons, with an option for 2021.

Cora formally assumed the role on November 2, 2017, following the World Series. Adam Grossman, chief marketing officer for the Red Sox, noted that at Cora's "opening press conference, he was talking about how we’re going to do damage", leading to the hashtag #DoDamage being trademarked by the Red Sox and used as a rallying slogan on social media for the 2018 season until it was succeeded by #DamageDone.

On October 18, 2018, his 43rd birthday, the Red Sox defeated the Astros 4-1 to win the ALCS 4-1 and advance to the World Series. Cora became the fifth rookie manager to reach the World Series and win in the expansion era. The Red Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in 5 games to give Cora his first championship as a manager and third overall.

The 2018 Sox were a complete and athletic team, balanced in every facet of the game. They led Major League Baseball in batting average (.268), runs (876), hits (1,509) and ERA (3.75). Stars like Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Chris Sale and Andrew Benintendi were paired with 35-year-old and World Series MVP Steve Pearce and ALCS MVP Jackie Bradley Jr. to make up one of the most relentless Sox teams in history. And maybe even in all of baseball.
