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.
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.
