Mookie Betts Fed the Homeless After Game 2 of the World Series

Mookie Betts Fed the Homeless After Game 2 of the World Series

Well, the fact that Martinez won't be able to DH in Los Angeles. And while the Dodgers get to play up to three straight, there are no guarantees that a Game 5 will happen.

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

The Dodgers, though, intend to put up as much resistance as possible in Game 3 with their left-handed power lineup against expected right-handed starter Rick Porcello. Designated hitter David Ortiz, Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez and catcher Jason Varitek headlined the group, but one key player was conspicuously absent from the mound at Fenway Park, 2004 staff ace Curt Schilling.

Seven members of the Red Sox 2004 World Series team threw out the first pitch before Boston's 4-2 victory over the Dodgers on Wednesday night. But Betts is turning heads for a gesture he made off the field. Martinez is still nursing a sore ankle from a spill at second base in Game 1. In Wednesday's Game 2, he provided the game-winning, two-run single in the fifth inning to give Boston a 4-2 lead.

In other words, they'll be hoping Martinez can go on Friday. Cora would not commit to Martinez playing the field this weekend. "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".

"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. Using Betts at second would allow the Red Sox to play J.D.
