Los Angeles has been a championship-caliber team for the last few years, but it’s still in search of ending its 30-year championship drought.
The Dodgers and Red Sox clash in Game 1 of the 2018 World Series on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.
The Dodgers are making their second consecutive World Series after beating the Brewers in seven games in the National League Championship Series.
The American League champion Red Sox dominated the defending World Series champion Astros in five games in the ALCS to make their fourth Fall Classic appearance in 14 years.
These two teams last met in the World Series in 1916 when the Dodgers were the Brooklyn Robins. Babe Ruth helped Boston to its fourth championship as the Red Sox beat the Robins four games to one.
Although it’s a small sample size because he’s spent his career in the American League, Sale hasn’t performed well against the Dodgers, as he’s given up seven earned runs on nine hits in six innings.
Game 1 marks the 10th time Kershaw’s kicked off a series for the Dodgers, and he’ll be looking to replicate his performance from the World Series opener a year ago.
