Red Sox Notch Game 2 World Series Win Over Dodgers

Red Sox Notch Game 2 World Series Win Over Dodgers

For the uninitiated, the "three true outcomes" are the results of plate appearances which don't put a ball into the field of play: a strikeout, a walk, or a home run.

Cora's other likely Game 3 option, righty Nathan Eovaldi, pitched out of the bullpen in each of the first two games.

Madson relieved starter Hyun-Jin Ryu with two outs, bases loaded, to face Steve Pearce.

German police rescue woman held hostage in Cologne railway station
The hostage situation began at 12.45pm and police closed the railway station and Breslauer Platz square behind the station. Police said the situation was considered "under control" and there was no immediate suspicion of a link to terrorism.

The Red Sox entered Wednesday batting.405 with a 1.335 OPS with two outs and runners in scoring position, getting 29 runs out of those situations.

After Game 2, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said to expect a different look on Friday, when he will send rookie right-hander Walker Buehler to the mound to start. He proceeded to throw his fastball five times in a row, missing in the same spot with all five-a five-pitch walk that, really, should have been a four-pitch walk. He's been one of the best pitchers in the big leagues for a while. "Most importantly? The men who sit in that ivory tower and pass their judgment from on high know EXACTLY what I did and it shames them as men knowing they'll never in their lives be able to do anything remotely close to that". Of their 12 total runs scored in two World Series games, only three were by way of the dinger. But all of that damage was limited to one inning-the fourth, when he allowed three singles and a walk-and he regrouped quickly. Joe Kelly took over in the seventh and worked a flawless frame in which he fanned two of three. It marked the first two games in World Series history that a team used an all right-handed lineup. The two teams' execution with RISP was also disparate during the regular season. (Of course, it helps when you're already baseball's strongest offense, in general.) Just how good are we talking?

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. The Red Sox had a.766 OPS with two outs.
