The Dodgers offense consisted of three hits and three bases on balls with Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp knocking in runs with David Freese and Manny Machado scoring.
The Dodgers send rookie Walker Buehler to the hill for the game three start. Buehler did not get a decision in a 5-1 win in game seven of the NLCS versus Milwaukee with a run allowed over 4.2 frames.
The Boston Red Sox rallied from a 2-1 deficit to down the Dodgers Wednesday for a 2-0 series lead. Boston starter David Price picked up the win with both runs plated over six frames with Craig Kimbrel pitching a perfect 9th to earn the save.
The Red Sox offense did their damage on eight hits and a pair of walks with JD Martinez ripping a two run single while Ian Kinsler and Steve Pearce recorded RBI’s followed by Mookie Betts with three hits and a run.
Veteran right hander Rick Porcello toes the rubber in game three of the World Series. Porcello comes off of an 8-6 win (ND) at Houston with four runs plated on seven hits including two BB over four innings.
Boston are 13-2 in their last 15 World Series games and over is 16-4-1 in Boston last 21 on grass and over is 16-4-1 in Boston last 21 overall. Under is 8-1-2 in LA Dodgers last 11 playoff home games and LA Dodges are 17-5 in their last 22 home games and under is 13-5-1 in LA Dodgers last 19 Friday games. Boston are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
Both pitchers have looked good and bad in the 2018 postseason so both are capable but I’m leaning over depending on the number…
