"Yesterday we had media day".

"I get it, the numbers and all that". "I think everybody takes pride in that". "And I look forward to doing the same thing tomorrow".

Price, a 33-year-old USA left-hander, baffled Dodgers batters much of the night with five strikeouts and three walks over six innings, surrendering his only two runs and three hits in the fourth.

Trailing 2-1 entering the fifth, the Red Sox made two quick outs before five consecutive batters reached base. "And that's what we do".

Starter David Price continued editing his personal postseason narrative with six strong innings, making it back-to-back victories after failing to notch one in his first 11 career playoff starts.

"Actually I saw the replay for the first time today around 2 and I was like, 'Oh, that's ugly, '" Cora said. "Nothing has changed. Nothing has changed". These bullpen pitchers will be fired up, raring to go, for the biggest games a baseball player can play in. Ryu pressed him to a two-strike count. His stuff was electric in Houston.

Kershaw, who has never lived up to his Cy Young credentials in the post-season, endured another rough outing, surrendering five runs on seven hits to take the loss.

"When I was in Korea, I only saw Fenway Park through TV", Ryu said through an interpreter.

Ryan Madson was summoned from the visiting bullpen, and all 38,644 fans on hand in the chilled grandstands of Fenway Park might have guessed what would happen next. "My initial reaction to the Green Monster is it's very tall"'. Then they went 2 for 4 in those situations Wednesday.

Selvi said the dissident journalist had been strangled by a Saudi assassination squad, in a process that took up to eight minutes. Merkel reiterated that she condemned Khashoggi's killing "in the strongest terms" and saw an "urgent need to clear up" the case.

Pitching coach Dana LeVangie said using him on back-to-back days was not an issue. He is on an astonishing 172-110 money line run, hitting on 61 percent of his Major League Baseball picks and paying out more than $3,900 to $100 bettors following him. "I guess that's the reason why".

The Sox and the Dodgers are both remarkable teams that truly earned their respective spots in the series, and the World Series promises to be wild from start to finish.

Outfielder Joc Pederson was tentative on chasing a fly ball hit by Andrew Benintendi in the 7th, and the ball ticked off his glove for a ground rule double, helping to set up the Nunez three run homer. The Red Sox became the Red Sox in 1907, and the Dodgers not officially until after the 1918 season.

Red Sox lefty David Price worked around a two-out walk and got Manny Machado on a popup to end the opening inning. "And we've been doing that to the opposition", he said. And then when it flipped, they got the hit. "That's part of the homefield advantage and especially being in the bullpen, where you have a little heater but still have to kind of get hot and stay hot".

"We were using Nathan only to, sort of like Chris Sale in NY, use Nathan in this game we want to win this game, knowing he potentially starts in a couple days", he said. I don't care how many times Ortiz had played first base with the Minnesota Twins before he came to Boston in 2003, don't tell me that Martinez isn't athletic enough to hold his own at first in Los Angeles.

Boston opened the scoring in the second inning when Xander Bogaerts doubled and scored on Ian Kinsler's single.

Martinez avoided a serious injury when he turned his right ankle rounding second base.

The weather could still play a factor, even if the rain stays away during the game (the Weather Channel calls for a 20 percent chance of rain from 8 p.m. onward).
