will square off in the 2018 World Series David Freese Jersey , as the Boston Red Sox take on the Los Angeles Dodgers.The Red Sox wrapped up the regular season with an MLB-leading 108 wins, while the Dodgers played their way into a sixth NL West title with a Game 163 win over the ColoradoRockies.It's been a long road for both teams, but they now stand just four wins away from a World Series title.Ahead you'll find a full preview of Game 1, complete with TV and streaming info.Game 1 InfoWhen:Tuesday,8:09 p.m. ETWhere:Fenway Park, BostonTV:FoxLive Stream:Fox Sports GoGame 1 PreviewChris SaleBillie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/Getty ImagesThere haven't been many pitching matchups in Game 1 of the World Series that stack up to Clayton Kershaw squaring off against Chris Sale.The southpaws are two of the best pitchers of their generation, and both have been able to stake claim to the title of "best pitcher in baseball" in recent seasons.Kershaw has two excellent starts this postseason sandwiched around one less-than-stellar one:NLDS Game 2:W,8.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 KNLCS Game 1:L, 3.0 IP, 6 H , 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 KNLCS Game 5:W, 7.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 KThe 30-year-old has never pitched at Fenway Park before, so he was there on Sunday night getting in some bullpen work and presumably the lay of the land:MLB MLBNo days off for Kersh. CTSis5ut8bOnly four players on the Boston roster have faced Kershaw before:Eduardo Nunez:2-for-12, 2B, 3 KJ.D. Martinez:3-for-8, 2B, HR, BB Manuel Margot Jersey , 2 KSteve Pearce:1-for-2, 2BIan Kinsler:1-for-2, BBOn the other side, Sale has not been his usual dominant self so far this October while battling a stomach issue.ALDS Game 1:W, 5.1 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 KALCS Game 1:ND, 4.0 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 5 KHe's had plenty of time to recover , though, with his last appearance coming on Oct. 13. The 29-year-old posted identical 2.11 ERAs at home and on the road this season, so pitching in front of the home fans will be just another day at the office.Likewise, just four players on the Dodgers roster have faced Sale in the past, and three of them were midseason pickups:Brian Dozier:12-for-47, 4 2B, 3 HR, 2 BB, 14 KManny Machado:6-for-19, 2 2B, HR, 3 BB, 5 KDavid Freese:2-for-5, BBYasmani Grandal:0-for-1Dozier has seen as much of Sale as anyone from when the two shared the AL Central Austin Hedges Jersey , so expect him to be manning second base in Game 1.Picking up a victory in the opener with your ace on the mound can set the tone for the entire season, so while it's a best-of-seven, a win in Game 1 can go a long way.On Tuesday night, one team will come one win closer to the ultimate goal.

A new column? Whatever you want to call it, it’s new, and it’s got one focal point: to answer your questions in the most quantitative way. Have a thought or hypothesis you’ve always thought was true but could never figure out how to prove it? Need the stats behind something? Does Rex Hudler say something on air and you say to yourself “that can’t be true...” Well the Royals Review Laboratory exists just to confirm or deny those thoughts.Why is Kauffman considered a neutral park when everyone says it’s a pitchers park? How great was the 2014/2015 Royals bullpen? Was their defense that extraordinary? What outcome would an average GM have had in the past decade of drafting that the Royals had?We’ll also along the way look at moments in the season through a quantitative lens, trying to highlight the extraordinary.
