Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Dodgers

Buehler, who has never faced the Red Sox, gave up a combined nine runs in his first two playoff outings, both Dodgers defeats.

The DH role will not be used Friday when the Red Sox take their 2-0 lead into Dodger Stadium to face Los Angeles.

Los Angeles will turn to freshman Walker Buehler, whose last start came on October 20 in Game 7 of the NLCS at Miller Park, where he allowed just one run in 4 ²/₃ innings to help the Dodgers claim their second NL pennant in two seasons. "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".

Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora says no decision has been made on whether slugger J.D. Martinez will start Game 3 of the World Series.

Martinez is Boston's main designated hitter.

Martinez rolled his right ankle on a double in Game 1.

"Standing room for Game 6 at least $700", Mullarkey said.

Thursday's travel day gives the Red Sox's formidable bullpen a chance to rest and recharge itself. He opened two games past year against the Astros, allowing two earned runs in 8 2/3 innings without getting a decision.

In other words, they'll be hoping Martinez can go on Friday.

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

"Out in Los Angeles the cheapest ticket to get in would be about $400, the most expensive, $8,000", said Jay Mullarkey, the vice president at South Windsor based Ticket Network.

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