On the opening night of the 2018 World Series; Red Sox’s, Eduardo Nunez’s three-run home run and Andrew Benintendi’s four-hits, carried the Boston Red Sox to a quick 1-0 lead in the World Series.
Despite costly errors, the Los Angeles Dodgers shouldn’t hang their heads too much — they chased Sox ace Chris Sale into the fifth and got into the Red Sox bullpen, as Boston manager Alex Cora used six relievers.
The question now is . . . Will that have an impact in Game 2?
The Difference Maker: David Price already exercised his postseason demons with his series-clinching win over the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series. Does that mean he has a clean slate and will be a key to the Red Sox bringing the World Series to an early conclusion, or was that the blip that fans in Fenway will forget after his start in Game 2?
