Red Sox take a 2-0 lead

  • Boston pitcher Curt Schilling during the game between the Atlanta Braves and the Boston Red Sox at Turner Field in Atlanta

Schilling was a key cog in Boston's run to its first World Series title since 1918, famously defeating the Yankees in the "bloody sock game" that was Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS.

"For us, right now, it's a game that we really need to win", Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts said Thursday at his home ballpark, where both clubs opted not to work out after flying across the country.

The Boston Red Sox had several members of their 2004 curse-breaking championship team on hand at Fenway Park Wednesday night to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 2 of the World Series, and Curt Schilling was not among them. The National League, originally founded in 1876, consists of the following teams: Arizona Diamondbacks; Atlanta Braves; Chicago Cubs; Cincinnati Reds; Colorado Rockies; Los Angeles Dodgers; Miami Marlins; Milwaukee Brewers; New York Mets; Philadelphia Phillies; Pittsburgh Pirates; San Diego Padres; San Francisco Giants; St. Louis Cardinals; and Washington Nationals.

Perhaps the Red Sox starting veteran right-hander Rick Porcello, after going with southpaws Chris Sale and Price in the first two games, will provide a spark, as the Dodgers figure to field a dramatically different lineup. In Wednesday's Game 2, he provided the game-winning, two-run single in the fifth inning to give Boston a 4-2 lead.

Martinez is Boston's main designated hitter. Martinez is still nursing a sore ankle from a spill at second base in Game 1.




Thursday's travel day gives the Red Sox's formidable bullpen a chance to rest and recharge itself.

Still, he's not ruling out J.D. for Game 3 entirely.

If Martinez plays the outfield, then either Betts, centre fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. or left fielder Andrew Benintendi would lose their spot.

Mookie Betts put up an MVP-caliber year and has ignited the Red Sox offense through two games of the World Series.

Cora flatly said Betts would not start at second base.
