The Red Sox continued to dominate the World Series as the hosts defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2 on Wednesday at Fenway Park in Massachusetts.

The victory gives the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in the World Series, as the series shifts to Los Angeles for the next three games.

Teams that go up 2-0 in the World Series have a strong track record, as the last 16 of 17 squads that went up 2-0 have won the World Series.

Boston is also red-hot in the World Series, as the Red Sox have managed to win 14 of their past 16 World Series games dating back to 2004.

David Price had a solid start for the Red Sox, as the 33-year old left handed hurler from Murfreesboro, Tennessee lasted six innings while allowing two earned runs on three hits, conceding three walks and striking out a game high five batters for the contest.

Boston has been lights out when batting with two outs, as the Red Sox have scored nine of their 12 runs with two outs in the World Series and have scored 33 of their 65 runs in the postseason as a whole this way.

Craig Kimbrel picked up his sixth save of the postseason and the Red Sox are currently on a six game winning streak.

Rookie Walker Buehler will have the ball in Game 3 for the Dodgers and Rick Porcello will counter for the Red Sox in what is an intriguing match-up.

Boston are 31/20 to win Game 3, with LA 4/7 to make home advantage count. The Red Sox are 7/2 to win the World Series 4-0.
