Martinez and the lineup of a team that won 108 games.The Dodgers haven't played an interleague game at Fenway since 2010, meaning Yasiel Puig, Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy will be getting their first looks on the field. The team took turns Monday throwing balls at a small, square space in the Green Monster, a little fun target practice while waiting for the real games to begin.Game 1 should be a cold one.

"It's not about myself or Alex, and just to see the minorities get opportunities and perform and do well, I think that that gives opportunities for others."It also creates a responsibility, he said."Do things the right way and to be good leaders," Roberts said. "Up to this point, I think we've done a pretty good job."___6:15 p.m.Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu will start Game 2 of the World Series, followed by righty Walker Buehler in Game 3.A...

Mon Oct 2219:17World Series Game 1 to be cold one for Dodgers, Red Sox
BOSTON (AP) — Hooting and hollering, Chris Taylor and a couple of Dodgers took aim at the Green Monster.

Mon Oct 2219:07Gutting it out: Game 1 starter Sale pitching for Series ring
BOSTON (AP) — Chris Sale would rather talk about the ring he can win as a World Series champion instead of the almost certainly nonexistent navel ring that — he maintains with a straight face — scratched him from a start in the last round.The Red Sox left-hander will belly up to the mound to start Game 1 against Los Angeles on Tuesday night, 10 days after his last outing and nine after he was hospitalized with what the team called a "stomach illness."Sale joked — we think — that it was from a piercing gone bad, and he kept up the ruse back in Boston."I'm not going to spill all of my secrets," he said.Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to start for the Dodgers, giving baseball a matchup of marquee lefties from a pair of iconic franchises at two of the oldest ballparks in the majors.The Red Sox, who won a franchise-record 108 games and their third straight AL East crown, are going for their fourth title in 14 years; the Dodgers, who lost to the Astros in the Series last year, will tr...

Mon Oct 2218:48World Series: How the Dodgers and Red Sox match up
A position-by-position look at the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox going into the World Series, starting Tuesday night at Fenway Park:___First Base:Dodgers: David Freese or Max Muncy. One of several spots where Los Angeles platoons based on matchups. Freese, a proven postseason performer, figures to face left-handers Chris Sale and David Price early in the Series. Freese was MVP of the 2011 World Series and NLCS with St. Louis. He had a homer and five RBIs in 10 playoff at-bats this year. Muncy, who was released by Oakland and spent 2017 in the minors, became one of baseball's biggest surprises this season with 35 home runs and a .973 OPS. He batted .182 with two homers, 10 walks and 18 strikeouts in 11 playoff games.Red Sox: Steve Pearce or Mitch Moreland. The underappreciated Pearce has played for seven big league teams, including all five in the AL East. He hammers left-handed pitching, which could really come in handy against a Dodgers team with three southpaw starters. More... [More]
