.Boston dominated the Houston Astros over five games in the American League Championship Series to secure its berth in the Fall Classic against either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Milwaukee Brewers.The Red Sox are in an ideal position Gary Sanchez Jersey , as they'll be more rested for the World Series and get to start the best-of-seven series at Fenway Park.Outside of the facts mentioned above, we don't know much about what will take place during the series, but we'll find out more as soon as Friday if the Dodgers close out the NLCS in Milwaukee. 2018 World Series ScheduleGame 1:Tuesday, October 23 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 2:Wednesday, October 24 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 3:Friday, October 26 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 4:Saturday, October 27 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 5:Sunday, October 28 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 6:Tuesday http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , October 30 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 7:Wednesday, October 31 (Time TBD, Fox)Known InfoRed Sox Will Be Fresh Entering World SeriesAfter clinching the American League pennant Thursday, the Red Sox earned four valuable days off before beginning the World Series at home.The rest matters most to the pitching staff, which was managed well in the ALCS by manager Alex Cora.Chris Sale, who was slated to start Game 6 of the ALCS, is most likely going to take the ball for Game 1 of the World Series with over a week of rest.David J. Phillip/Associated PressALCS Game 5 starter David Price would be in line to start Game 2 for the Red Sox if they keep the same rotation from the first two postseason series.In that case, Price would be working on five days of rest, which is something you rarely see in the postseason.The extended layoff will also benefit the Boston bullpen, and it gives Cora an opportunity to use Nathan Eovaldi or Rick Porcello in relief during the first two games of the series.Cora could opt to use his projected starters for Games 3 and 4 for an inning or two of relief, like he did during the ALCS, to bridge the gap between the starters and closer Craig Kimbrel. Porcello also pitched in relief during the ALDS against the Yankees.Regardless of which strategy Cora employs Sonny Gray Jersey , his pitchers will be fresher than the NL champion, who will have three days off at most, with at least one of them reserved for travel. Game 7 of the NLCS would be Saturday night, if necessary. World Series Opens At Fenway ParkBoston clinched home-field advantage in the World Series because it recorded the best regular-season record in baseball (108-54).During the regular season, the Red Sox were 57-24 at Fenway Park, but they were only 2-2 there in the first two rounds of the postseason.The team did go up against two of the best road teams in Major League Baseball.Elise Amendola/Associated PressThe Houston Astros and New York Yankees both had better road marks than the two teams left in the National League.In their last three World Series appearances, all of which have resulted in championships, the Sox won all but one of the first two games at home.Boston took the first two games of the 2004 and 2007 World Series on its way to sweeps of St. Louis and Colorado, while it split Games 1 and 2 with the Cardinals in 2013 before claiming the title in six games.If the Red Sox get off to a similar start Tuesday and Wednesday, they'll enter either Dodger Stadium or Miller Park with a two-game lead and the opportunity to add to their five road victories in the postseason.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers will make a rotation shuffle Sunday, swapping left-handers for the series finale against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium.With a 1 p.m. local start, what they won’t have to worry about is a power failure after Dodger Stadium went dark Saturday for the second time in almost four weeks in the middle of a game.Instead of lefty Alex Wood Luis Severino Jersey , the Dodgers will now have lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu take aim at the Padres with the chance at a series sweep on the line. Wood will now be pushed back to Wednesday, which is the finale of a brief two-game interleague series at Texas.Article continues below ...No reason was given for the change, although Wood has been struggling with nagging injuries this season that was originally diagnosed as leg cramps in a couple of early starts. He eventually went on the disabled list earlier this month for left adductor tendonitis.The Padres will stick to their original plan as left-hander Robbie Erlin will make his seventh start, including his fifth this month. Erlin has spent most of the season in the bullpen but in four previous August starts, he has put together a 3.43 ERA, earning two victories in the process.With the Padres looking to make some rotation changes in the coming weeks, every outing is sure to be picked apart. Lefty Eric Lauer (forearm strain) could be back as early as next week. Lis Perdomo (strained right shoulder) could be back not long after that.“We’re going to continue to talk through our rotation plan (we had) coming out of the break,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “Nothing is finalized at this point and time. (Lauer) is a candidate to be reinserted at some point in time next week.”Ryu knows all about an up-in-the-air status, having spent 3 1/2 months on the disabled list with a left groin strain. He has made two starts since returning, a tidy six-inning start Aug. 15 when he held the San Francisco Giants scoreless over six innings, and a start Tuesday against the St. Louis Cardinals when he gave up three runs on four hits over four innings.Despite having starter Kenta Maeda working out of the bullpen, the Dodgers will use just four pitchers this time through the rotation: Ryu, Walker Buehler http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , Rich Hill and Clayton Kershaw.The Dodgers moved 2 1/2 games behind the co-division leaders Arizona and Colorado and they do not sound like a club that will take a game on Sunday against the last-place and struggling Padres for granted.“Everything needs to be tightened up as we move toward September,” Hill said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “As we know, things get amplified. And you want to be able to be as close to perfection as we can. … We’ll continue playing like there’s no tomorrow.”The future does look bright for a Padres organization loaded with quality prospects. The present, though, is a bit unsightly with 10 defeats in their last 12 games, including a bad-luck loss that happened Saturday on the first pitch after the power was restored in L.A.The Dodgers entered the current series 8-12 in August, but are now on the verge of their first three-game series sweep since July 2-4 at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
