appearances between them Kendall Graveman Jersey , but the 2018 World Series is just the franchises' second meeting in the Fall Classic.The World Series, which begins Tuesday at Fenway Park, is the first championship series between the two since 1916.Boston has been one of the most successful teams over the past 20 years, as it won the 2004, 2007 and 2013 titles.The Dodgers, who are in search of their first title since 1988, are the third team to reach back-to-back World Series since 2010.As Tuesday inches closer, we will know more about how each team will approach the series. But for now, we have an idea of what will occur when the series opens in Boston.2018 World Series ScheduleGame 1:Tuesday, October 23 (8:09 p.m,., Fox)Game 2:Wednesday, October 24 (8:09 p.m., Fox)Game 3:Friday, October 26 (8:09 p.m,, Fox)Game 4:Saturday http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-canseco-jersey , October 27 (8:09 p.m., Fox)Game 5:Sunday, October 28 (8:15 p.m., Fox)*Game 6:Tuesday, October 30 (8:09 p.m., Fox)*Game 7:Wednesday, October 31 (8:09 p.m., Fox)**Ifnecessary.All times ET. Sale, Kershawin Line to Start Game 1The World Series pitching matchups haven't been released, but with the way the ALCS and NLCS played out, Game 1 could feature a battle of two of baseball's top pitchers.Boston ace Chris Sale only pitched in Game 1 of the ALCS, which should mean he will be more than fresh for the World Series opener Tuesday at Fenway Park.Elise Amendola/Associated PressOn the other hand, Kershaw started two games for the Dodgers in the NLCS, but since he started Game 5, he should be ready to go on regular rest.The one inning Kershaw threw at the conclusion of Game 7 on Saturday came on a day whenKershaw was going to throw a bullpen session anyway.Over the past two postseasons, the left-handed aces have been sharp for their respective sides, which leads us to believe a pitcher's duel will break out in Game 1.In his past three playoff starts http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-jed-lowrie-jersey , Sale's given up two earned runs and he tossed a scoreless inning in relief in Game 4 of the ALDS against the New York Yankees.Kershawmade eight starts and two relief appearances in the postseason in 2017 and 2018, and he achieved a 5-1 record in those outings.The Dodgers ace was roughed up for six earned runs in Game 5 of the 2017 World Series by the Houston Astros, but other than that, Kershaw hasn't given up more than four earned runs in one game during that span.If both pitchers throw the way they should in Game 1, the Fall Classic will open with a low-scoring affair that will be decided by the bullpens.Boston Appears to Enter with More Prolific OffenseOn paper, the Red Sox have the more threatening offense of the two World Series participants.Boston averaged 5.8 runs per game in the ALCS, while the Dodgers managed 3.2 runs per game in the NLCS.Even though Boston played two fewer games than Los Angeles, those numbers are still a good indication of what each lineup is capable of producing.In the NLCS, the Dodgers didn't score more than five runs, while the Red Sox eclipsed that total in three of their four victories in the ALCS.However, if you look a bit deeper, the offensive numbers of the two teamsare more similar.Both teams hit five home runs in the second round of the postseason, and they each had at least nine players knock in a run.Boston hit .233 as a team against the Houston Astros, while the Dodgers were .223 at the dish versus the Milwaukee Brewers.Mark J. Terrill/Associated PressThe World Series numbers for both teams should be right around their LCS totals given the amount of in-form pitchers on each side.The one factor that could play a role early in the series is the unfamiliarity between the sides. Most of the Red Sox hitters don't have a wealth of experience against the Dodgers pitchers and vice versa.Manny Machado is the only player with an advantage at the plate because he spent six seasons with the Baltimore Orioles.Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90. NEW YORK — The 1,584th major league game for David Wright was the first one in which he ever thought he was going to throw up while in the on-deck circle. The 1,585th major league game also promises to be an unprecedented experience for Wright Tony Phillips Jersey , who will make his final appearance in the bigs Saturday night when the New York Mets host the Miami Marlins in the penultimate game of the season for both teams at Citi Field.Jose Urena earned the win by allowing one run over six innings Friday night as the Marlins won the series opener, 8-1.Mets left-hander Steven Matz (5-11, 4.14 ERA) is scheduled to oppose Marlins right-hander Trevor Richards (4-9, 4.66) on Saturday night. But all eyes before, during and after the game will be on Wright, the career-long Met who will be forced to retire after the season due to chronic neck, shoulder and back injuries.Article continues below ...“I’m happy that David got back to the field,” said Marlins manager Don Mattingly, whose own career was shortened by back woes. “He’s worked so hard and you hate to see guys battle, battle, battle to not get back to the field. The fact that he worked his way back, I think tells a lot about David, his kind of desire.”Wright’s pinch-hit at-bat in the fifth inning Friday night — he grounded out on the first pitch he saw from Urena — was his first at-bat for the Mets since May 27, 2016, when he went 1-for-4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers and struck out against Louis Coleman in his final plate appearance.Wright underwent complicated neck surgery — it was officially termed a “cervical discectomy and fusion surgery” — 20 days later. It was the first of three operations for Wright, who had right rotator cuff surgery last Sept. 5 and a lower back operation exactly a month later.Wright recovered well enough to embark upon a three-week rehab assignment in August. But while playing for Class A St. Lucie and Triple-A Las Vegas, he realized his body would not allow him to play any longer.“Physically and the way I feel right now http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-walt-weiss-jersey , and from everything that the doctors have told me, there’s not going to be any improvement,” Wright said during a tearful press conference Sept. 13. “So, yeah, I don’t see (continuing his career in 2019) as a possibility.”There were no tears for Wright on Friday, when he and manager Mickey Callaway agreed he would make a pinch-hitting appearance the first time Callaway had to replace the pitcher. But Wright’s dinner nearly made an unexpected appearance in the on-deck circle in the fourth inning, when he was preparing to bat behind Kevin Plawecki. “I bent down for a minute and I was like ‘It might come out,’ ” Wright said with a grin afterward. “My heart felt like it was beating through my chest and I was like ‘I can’t do this right now.'”Fortunately for Wright, Plawecki hit into a fielder’s choice for the final out. The next inning Wright received a standing ovation from the crowd of 27,045 both before and after his at-bat.“I’ve played in a lot of Opening Days and I’ve played in some playoff games and some World Series games and I never felt that type of nervousness that I felt tonight,” Wright said. “Like I said, there were points where I felt like I was pretty close to throwing up, but once it was over and I got a chance to kind of look up a little bit, I wish I could have gotten a hit. But putting (a) 96 (mph fastball) in play isn’t so bad either. Just the reaction from the crowd, I’ll remember that forever.”Wright will receive plenty of ovations Saturday, when the Mets expect a rare sellout. The gates will open at 4:30 p.m. so that fans can watch Wright take batting practice. Callaway said Wright will likely receive two at-bats before being pulled before the top of an inning.Wright is scheduled to spend at least an inning with the Mets’ broadcast crew after he leaves the game. He’ll end the night by addressing the crowd after the final out.As for what he expects?“Just to be able to get in the flow of the game a little bit and to really be able to soak it in and enjoy the moment, I think Marcus Semien Jersey , is my goal for (Saturday),” Wright said. “A hit wouldn’t hurt. But expectations are low, so I’ll be smiling (Saturday), hits or outs.”The spate of injuries will bring a low-key ending to a career that once appeared destined to land Wright in the Hall of Fame. Through his age-30 season in 2013, Wright had a .301 batting average, a .382 on-base percentage and a .506 slugging percentage in 1,374 games, numbers which compared favorably to George Brett (.316/.370.,503 in 1,358 games) and Chipper Jones (.309/.404/.544 in 1,252 games).“There is a sadness to it,” Callaway said Friday afternoon. “We’re glad he gets to go out there tomorrow and be in front of the fans and in front of his daughters and we’re glad that his hard work paid off. He did everything he could to come back and he’s going to get to show everybody one more time.”Matz didn’t factor into the decision in his most recent start last Sunday, when he gave up three runs over three innings as the Mets beat the Washington Nationals 8-6. Richards earned the win Sunday, when he tossed seven scoreless innings in the Marlins’ 6-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.Matz is 3-2 with a 3.26 ERA in seven career starts against the Marlins, and that includes a 1-0 record and 2.31 ERA in two starts against Mia mi this season.Richards took the loss in his lone outing against the Mets on Sept. 12, when he gave up six runs (four earned) over five innings as Miami fell 13-0.
