|Hot Red Sox bats chill Dodgers in Game 1|
A Chris Sale-Clayton Kershaw playbill gave way to a hastily arranged alternative Game 1 of the World Series in which the Red Sox defeated the Dodgers, 8-4, on Tuesday night, on the might of a more bullish bullpen, a more polished defensive effort and a back-breaking pinch-hit, three-run dinger off the bat of Eduardo Nunez.

|Sale lifted in 5th as pitch count climbs in G1|
Chris Sale, who missed time during the regular season for shoulder inflammation and was slowed in the playoffs with a stomach illness, exited his start Tuesday night with a lead, but also a high pitch count, leaving it up to the bullpen to account for the final 15 outs of Game 1 of the World Series between the Red Sox and Dodgers.

If the Red Sox are seeking a similar outcome to the last time they played in the World Series, maybe it couldn't hurt to repeat events that were part of that little slice of history. Perhaps that's why they invited a lot of the people who helped ring in the World Series in 2013 -- the last time they won the championship -- to celebrate the opening of the Fall Classic this time, too.
