Red Sox Up 2-0 In World Series


01

Boston is now up two games to none in the World Series. In game two, we saw Red Sox starter, David Price, at his best. The Sox ace went six innings and recorded the win for Boston.

Winning the first two games is huge for Boston. If a team goes up two to nothing in a World Series, they have gone on to win the whole thing about 80 percent of the time. So Boston is in good shape. Sox fans are also happy to see Price pitching well. If this series goes six or seven games we may see Price take the mound again. And that is a good thing. After struggling early on in the playoffs, Price has now won his last two games.

Price himself, admits that he was relieved that his team made it past the Astros. And now he’s got a full head of steam. And Boston may feel the same way. They beat a very good team in the Astros. And their momentum has carried them to winning the first two games in the World Series.

J.D. Martinez was certainly feeling this momentum when he hit his two-out base hit to put the Red Sox in the lead in game two. But the question is, can the Sox keep it going?

The game three pitching matchup might be an advantage for Boston. The Sox are starting Rick Porcello who had a 4.28 ERA in the regular season and has done well so far in the playoffs, only allowing five runs in ten and 2/3 innings. The Dodgers are starting rookie Walker Beuhler, who had an impressive regular season ERA of 2.62. But he’s had a bit more trouble so far in the playoffs and may be battling nerves in his first World Series start. It’s poised to be another battle between these two teams.
