Red Sox Rally Past Dodgers 4-2, Take 2-0 Lead in World Series

Thursday, October 25, 2018

The Boston Red Sox are two victories away from winning the World Series.

The Red Sox defeated the LA Dodgers 4-2 behind starting pitcher David Price to take a 2-0 lead in the World Series.

Price tossed six innings, giving up two runs and striking out five to pick up his second career postseason win.

"He was amazing. I get it, the numbers. But this guy has been one of the best pitchers in the big leagues for a long time,” said Boston manager Alex Cora in his post-game press conference.

Prior to game 5 against Houston in the ALCS, Price was 0 and 9 in postseason starts.

"I just tried to keep it the same. Same as in Houston, the same as in every other game. Don't put any added pressure or anything of that nature. Just go out there and throw strikes and execute pitches and rely on my defense, and that's what we were able to do," said Price after the game. 

Red Sox Rally in 5th

Trailing 2-1 with two outs in the fifth inning, the Red Sox started a rally.

Cristian Vazquez started things off with a single to right field followed by a Mookie Betts single to center and then Andrew Benintendi worked an eight-pitch walk.

Dodgers pitcher Ryan Madson then walked Steve Pearce with the bases loaded to score a run and tie the game at two.

With the bases still loaded, JD Martinez singled to right field to score Betts and Benintendi and put the Red Sox ahead 4-2.

The Red Sox have scored a total of 68 runs in the postseason. Of those runs, 38 of them have come with two outs.

"Putting the ball in play in those situations is very important. I said it a few days ago, and I'll say it again we live in an era that .210 with 30 home runs and 70 RBIs is acceptable, it's a good season, and we don't believe that. There are certain situations that a strikeout is not just an out. And we put them in play, and they did again tonight, and that's why we won the game," said Cora.

Kimbrel came on and had a spotless ninth inning to seal the win.

The last ten teams to win the first two games of the World Series have gone on to win it all.

Game 3 

Game three is set for Friday, October 26 in Los Angeles. 

Game time is set for 8 p.m.
