Everything you need to know about Game 2 of the World Series between the Red Sox and Dodgers.
The 2018 World Series continues Wednesday night when the Dodgers and Red Sox go head-to-head in Game 2 at Fenway Park.
Boston took a 1-0 series lead Tuesday night with a 8–4 Game 1 win. Andrew Benintendi's four-hit performance and J.D. Martinez's two runs put the Red Sox up 5–4 in the seventh inning. Eduardo Nunez delivered the decisive blow in the seventh with a pinch-hit three-run homer and put a Dodgers comeback out of reach.
The Dodgers will turn to Hyun-Jin Ryu in Game 2 to try and split the series. Ryu posted a 1.97 ERA during the regular season but has surrendered seven runs in 14 1/3 innings in the postseaon. Opposite Ryu will be David Price, who earned his first postseason win after tossing six shutout innings to clinch the Red Sox's pennant.
Game 2 will be broadcast on FOX.
