Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Dodgers

The Red Sox had little resistance in building a 2-0 series lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers, but now have to face the best lineup their opponent has to offer and in a hostile environment at that. Both teams started left-handers in the first two games.

This will be Hill's third career Series start. He hit 24 of his 25 regular-season home runs against righties while posting a.338 on-base percentage.

And, even if the Dodgers lose tonight, it ain't over yet - because the Dodgers have won 4 games in a row before. and they've got the talent to do it again. "I don't think tomorrow is do-or-die quite the way Game 7 is obviously, but being down 2-0 in the Series going into it, there's definitely some pressure there". J.D. Martinez has an ankle injury, and manager Alex Cora doesn't know if he'll be able to suit up for Game 3.

Martinez is Boston's main designated hitter. He opened two games previous year against the Astros, allowing two earned runs in 8 2/3 innings without getting a decision.

While David Ortiz, Pedro Martinez, Kevin Millar, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, Keith Foulke, and Alan Embree are all expected to participate, Schilling, who memorably donned a bloody sock during his legendary victory in Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS while helping to propel the Red Sox past the New York Yankees, said he wasn't invited. He started 57 times in the outfield this season, splitting time in left field and right field.

Boston Red Sox star Mookie Betts has not only proven his heroics on the field, but off the field, too.

Cora flatly said Betts would not start at second base.
