The 2018 World Series will continue Wednesday night, as the Boston Red Sox host the Los Angeles Dodgers for Game 2. The Red Sox currently lead the best-of-seven series by a 1-0 margin.

Game 2 at Fenway Park
Unlike Game 1, this one stays close throughout. The Dodgers even take their first lead of the series, thanks to a Matt Kemp RBI groundout. After trading blows during the middle innings, the two sides remain tied at 3-3 until the ninth inning. That's when pinch-hitter Brock Holt -- yes, Brock Holt -- jumps the fence against Kenley Jansen to give the Red Sox a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
