Dodgers unravel after more 2-out magic from the Red Sox

Dodgers unravel after more 2-out magic from the Red Sox

Boston pinch hitter Eduardo Nunez celebrates after hitting a three run home run against the Los Angeles Dodgers during the seventh inning in game one of the 2018 World Series at Fenway Park. But there remains a vast, grassy space in between, where simple things like base hits and glovework still matter.

Now up 2-0 in the series, the Red Sox are two wins away from winning their third World Series since capturing the title in 2004 following an 86-year drought.

They will need to start playing better though if they want to erase the 2-0 deficit and avoid losing in the World Series for the second straight season.

And once again, the 108-win Red Sox waited until there were two outs to break through.

"This is the biggest stage in baseball", Price said after his longest postseason outing since signing a seven-year, $217 million contract to come to Boston in 2016. In Ryu's defense, five of those runs came his last time out, in Game 6 of the NLCS against the Milwaukee Brewers.

"At least we know if things don't go well in L.A. we're coming back, so that's good", Boston manager Alex Cora said.

"I feel like it helps out a little bit, then just being able to attack with the fastball then being able to pick one of the other, either a fastball or off-speed pitch", he said.

Friedman said the Sick Kids cases are all among children under 15, with most clustered among kids of preschool age. By then, the body may have cleared the infection itself and tests may not turn up any specific viral cause.

"I get it, the numbers and all that".

On a frigid night at Fenway Park, Price held the highest-scoring team in the National League hitless through three innings and retired the last seven batters he faced.

Ryu nursed a 2-1 lead into the fifth and got two quick outs.

"We've got to find a way to win a baseball game, " manager Dave Roberts said. Ryan Madson walked Steve Pearce to tie the game before Martinez, who had 130 RBIs in the regular season, dropped a flare in front of right fielder Yasiel Puig for a two-run single that gave Boston a 4-2 lead.

"To be able to contribute and not stink is refreshing", Kelly said after Wednesday's game, via Mookie Betts followed with a single, and Andrew Benintendi, who also made another highlights worthy catch in left, drew a walk to load the bases.

Boston improved to 9-0 this postseason when scoring first, getting off to another fast start by breaking through in the second. Nine of their 12 World Series runs have been scored with two outs. In Game 1 of the World Series, he inherited two runners and allowed both to score.

But once again the Red Sox would hit back, scoring a pair at the bottom of the same inning after driving Kershaw from the game.

"We were using Nathan only to, sort of like Chris Sale in NY, use Nathan in this game we want to win this game, knowing he potentially starts in a couple days", he said. "We just understand that Game 3 is a necessity, just like Game 2".
