Manager Alex Cora's lineup has J.D. Martinez in left field, Jackie Bradley Jr.in center and Mookie Betts in his normal right field position, not second base, as some had speculated the Sox might do with no designated hitter in the National League park.

For serious Red Sox fans the prospect of a Hollywood ending is a reality.

The Red Sox can take a commanding 3-0 lead in the World Series with a win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 3.

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

Hello and welcome to our coverage of Game 3 of the 2018 World Series: thanks for joining us!

"But we're going to shuffle it up for Game 3, (and) it's not because of necessarily performance, it's kind of who the starting pitcher for those guys is", Roberts said.

The third game of the series is Friday at 5:09 p.m. PT - that is if you believe Google's Major League Baseball game schedule.

Two victories away from a championship, the challenge will only increase for a Boston Red Sox club intent on bringing the franchise its fourth World Series title since 2004. He opened two games a year ago against the Astros, allowing two earned runs in 8 2/3 innings without getting a decision.

The six-time All-Star's response follows a report from an unnamed Red Sox executive who said the team "did not reach out to him, but it is not out of spite", according to Dan Shaughnessy of The Boston Globe.
