Everything you need to know about Game 3 of the World Series between the Dodgers and Red Sox.
The World Series continues in Los Angeles with the Dodgers host the Red Sox in Game 3.
Boston defeated Los Angeles 4-2 in Wednesday night's Game 2 at Fenway Park. Down 2-1 in the fifth inning, the Red Sox rallied as Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu gave up a single to Mookie Betts before walking Andrew Benintendi to load the bases. After Ryu was pulled, reliever Ryan Madson walked Steve Pearce to bring in the tying run. J.D. Martinez then singled to right field and the Red Sox scored two more runs.

The rookie has posted a 5.40 ERA in 16 2/3 innings this postseason. Opposite Buehler, Boston will send Rick Porcello to the mound. During the playoffs, the righty is 1-0 with a 5.00 ERA over 10 2/3 innings. He has started two games and pitched two in relief this October.
