Red Sox, Dodgers set to battle in World Series

Joey Bova, Deputy Video Editor, Deputy Social Media Editor

This year’s World Series, which begins Tuesday night, features two surprising teams: the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers took seven games to stop the up-and-coming Brewers and did it in style. The Dodgers won 5-1 in Milwaukee. With sheer emotion, Yasiel Puig, star right fielder hit a monster home run in the 6th inning to put the Dodgers up 5-1.














After their 5-1 win in Milwaukee, they move forward to the World Series. A day after their win, star ace Clayton Kershaw was seen warming up in the bullpen getting ready for the series to come.

In the American League, it was the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros. The Defending World Series Champions the Houston Astros went ahead early in the series winning Game 1 7-2 in Boston. The following three games were not the outcome the Astros were looking for. Boston won four straight–one game at home, and the last three in Houston. The Red Sox dethroned the defending champions and moved on to play the Dodgers.

The first two and last two games of the World Series are in Boston, and the three games in between will be played in Los Angeles. The Red Sox have a crazy fan base and with playing at home first in the series, they could get into the Dodgers’ heads, but with the Dodgers having played in the World Series last year, they have more experience than the Red Sox.

The last time the Red Sox went to the World Series was in 2013 against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Red Sox won the series 4-2, with David Ortiz, also known as Big Papi, who won the MVP.

Game 1 starts at 8:09 p.m. on FOX.
