Curt Schilling absent from Red Sox first-pitch ceremony

View Larger

Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers reacts Wednesday to his eighth inning strikeout against the Boston Red Sox in Game Two of the 2018 World Series at Fenway Park in Boston. While the voyage to California is very much a business trip, Joe Kelly couldn't help but let out his inner kid as he arrived at Dodger Stadium on Friday.

The Red Sox, up 2-0 in the series, face the Dodgers at 8:09 p.m. ET Friday in Los Angeles.

While David Ortiz, Pedro Martinez, Kevin Millar, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, Keith Foulke, and Alan Embree are all expected to participate, Schilling, who memorably donned a bloody sock during his legendary victory in Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS while helping to propel the Red Sox past the New York Yankees, said he wasn't invited. Lefty-hitter Rafael Devers is at third.

EU warns Italy on budget but walks a fine line
Italy's budget proposal is considered out of line with commitments made earlier, with a proposed deficit of 2.4 per cent. Matteo Salvini , the leader of the League party, called the accusation "surreal".

Martinez has said he planned on playing in Game 3. The whole orchestra is decked out in B logo caps as they play the Boston anthem we've all heard too many times. They had just one run on three hits over five innings against the Boston bullpen in Game 1.

Buehler, who has never faced the Red Sox, gave up a combined nine runs in his first two playoff outings, both Dodgers defeats. With the series moving to the National League's home turf, no designated hitters will be used. A shift in strategy likely is ahead after right-hander Ryan Madson allowed all five of his inherited runners to score in the first two games.
