The Boston Red Sox are in fact now leading the series 2-0 heading into the third game tonight. He opened two games previous year against the Astros, allowing two earned runs in 8 2/3 innings without getting a decision.
Boston will face Dodgers rookie right-hander Walker Buehler, and Boston figures to be more concerned with maintaining its approach than switching up personnel. A team spokesperson told WEEI.com that Wednesday's first pitch ceremony was informal and "grew organically" from members of the 2004 team who happened to be attending the game, but that seems hard to believe. "It was originally just going to be Pedro and David and Wake and Millar, but we heard from a few others and they are included". Using Betts at second would allow the Red Sox to play J.D. "The Red Sox have won eight World Series championships".
Meanwhile, the Dodgers are counting on Walker Buehler to yank them out of the 2-0 deficit. Buehler has at times looked like the best pitcher in L.A.'s rotation, so he's certainly capable of getting the Dodgers back into this series.
