Two right-handed pitchers get the ball in Game 3 of the World Series, which has become a pivotal must-win for the Los Angeles Dodgers at home.
The Los Angeles Dodgers could not do what the team sought out to do in the first two games of the 2018 World Series. While winning both games would have been nice, the main objective for LA in the first two games was to win at least one at Fenway Park to ensure that the Dodgers had home field advantage in the final five games.
That was not the case and now the Dodgers need to find four wins in the last five games, if there even is five more games, with three of the games being at Dodger Stadium.
That is the only silver lining of the Dodgers being down 0-2. The Red Sox simply did what they were supposed to do and win both games at home. Now, the Dodgers need to defend their turf and win all three in LA.
It is not going to be an easy feat but it is possible for the Dodgers, who were prone at getting red-hot at times this season. When the Dodgers are red-hot, there is no team in baseball that can beat them.
It has been a while since we have seen that red-hot team and most of October has been a grind. If there is a time for the Dodgers to flip the switch, it is now.
