Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Dodgers

Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Dodgers

As we know, that lead would hold up and the Red Sox are up two games in the series. He beat NY in Yankee Stadium in the pivotal third game of the Division Series, then won the third game of the ALCS in his hometown of Houston and got three outs in the series clincher, to the admiration of his idol Nolan Ryan and to the joy of teammates present and past.

Or maybe these Dodgers, as advanced analytically as any team in the industry, will find a way to tap into Roberts' memories of being a member of the 2004 Red Sox, who wiped out not just a 2-0 deficit but a 3-0 hole - the only baseball team ever to pull that off - to the Yankees in that ALCS.

He led them to a victory over Colorado in Game 163 that clinched Los Angeles' sixth straight NL West title. Despite his contributions to the Red Sox 2004 championship, the Boston-based former pitcher was not in attendance prior to Game 2.

Perhaps the Red Sox starting veteran right-hander Rick Porcello, after going with southpaws Chris Sale and Price in the first two games, will provide a spark, as the Dodgers figure to field a dramatically different lineup. J.D. Martinez has an ankle injury, and manager Alex Cora doesn't know if he'll be able to suit up for Game 3.

Mattis expected to send hundreds of troops to border
Trump previously said he would send the military to the border if Mexican authorities failed to stop the caravan, which they have. Those troops are under the control of state governors and are limited to support roles such as providing surveillance.

Martinez rolled his right ankle on a double in Game 1.

In other words, they'll be hoping Martinez can go on Friday.

"Out in Los Angeles the cheapest ticket to get in would be about $400, the most expensive, $8,000", said Jay Mullarkey, the vice president at South Windsor based Ticket Network.

If the Red Sox ending up having to play more games at Fenway Park, tickets rise even higher according to Ticket Network.
