Red Sox didn't ask Schilling to participate in ceremony involving 2004 team

Consider how many Red Sox fans were out celebrating, still thinking about the game and 2-0 series lead acquired when one of the guys responsible for it was thinking of others. While the voyage to California is very much a business trip, Joe Kelly couldn't help but let out his inner kid as he arrived at Dodger Stadium on Friday.

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. But, if the Red Sox were looking to distance themselves from Schilling and his radical, sometimes offensive, views, that would explain the snub. Lefty-hitter Rafael Devers is at third.

But Cora said Thursday that whatever lineup he uses, it will not feature star right fielder Mookie Betts at second base.

Boston's 8-4 win in this year's opener averaged 13,755,000, down 8 percent from the 14,698,000 for the Dodgers' 3-1 win over Houston in Game 1 last year and the fewest since 12,191,000 for the Giants' 7-1 win over Kansas City that opened the 2014 Series. "But these are the guys that got us here, and we're going to ride them out".

$20 Billion Mega-Bridge Between Hong Kong and China Ready for Use
Chinese leader Xi Jinping has opened one of the world's longest bridges, linking Hong Kong and Macau to the Chinese mainland. Created to withstand earthquakes and typhoons, it was built using 400,000 tonnes of steel, enough to build 60 Eiffel Towers.

But, what Betts did later in the night was what deserved the most attention, even if he didn't want it.

"Me and Blake, yesterday, we got to eat, and had [a piece of pizza] left and he said the night before, he had given it to a homeless guy and he hit two home runs", he said at the time.

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