Dodgers vs. Red Sox

Dodgers vs. Red Sox

In a historic matchup not seen since 1916, the Los Angeles Dodgers will face the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday at Boston's storied Fenway Park.

It's expected to be a fantastic series played between two historic franchises that play in iconic stadiums and are located in wonderful baseball cities. The Red Sox won in 12 innings, became the first major league team to overcome a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven postseason series and swept St. Louis for their first title since 1918.

Two of the most relentless offenses in the game will test each other's top-heavy pitching staffs, but Boston's just a little deeper on all fronts. "We've been playing through it", Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi said. Kershaw has been a mainstay since his debut a decade ago, but announced Game 2 starter Hyun-Jin Ryu was recovering from surgeries on his left elbow and left shoulder and announced Game 3 starter Walker Buehler missed nearly all of 2016 due to Tommy John surgery.

So how much does that moment live on in the consciousness of Red Sox Nation-State?

That takes us to the bottom of the seventh, which featured Eduardo Nunez's big pinch-hit three-run homer. "They've had an incredible season and we're all cheering them on". Cora is sticking with the left-hander for Wednesday night's game.

If the Dodgers win, Roberts - whose father is African-American and mother is Japanese - would also be the first African-American to win a World Series since 1993. He had three hits this postseason and was benched in Games 4 and 5 of the ALCS for Devers, who's had a terrific postseason. Machado drove in three runs in the contest. When Pearce joined the Red Sox from the Blue Jays at the end of June, he completed the cycle of having played for all five teams in the AL East. A walk to Steve Pearce loaded the bases for J.D. Martinez and he whiffed for the first out. He turned 22 at midnight, three minutes before the game ended. "They said stick with the process and the results will come". Two pitches later, the Dodgers watched Nunez's liner climb high enough to make it into the first row of seats above the Green Monster for an 8-4 lead.

Kershaw pitched the final inning in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday - three days after a 98-pitch start - but doesn't expect that to hinder him at the onset of this World Series.
