The 24-year-old will have the advantage of unfamiliarity on his side
Rookie Walker Buehler gets the start for the Dodgers Brad Hand Jersey , and he's been excellent at home all season. In 74.2 innings at Dodger Stadium spanning 12 starts and one relief appearance, he's posted a 1.93 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 10.1 K/9., as second baseman Ian Kinsler is the only player on the Red Sox roster who has faced him before. He went 1-for-2 against him back on July 13 while he was still playing for the Los Angeles Angels.A strong start from Buehler would go a long way toward the Dodgers righting the ship.On the Red Sox side, Rick Porcello gets the start."I'm looking forward to the opportunity," Porcello told reporters. "That's a good ballclub over there. They're versatile, and I'm ready for the challenge."With a righty on the mound, the Dodgers will likely have lefty sluggers Max Muncy, Cody Bellinger and Joc Pederson in the starting lineup for the first time this series.Cody BellingerStacy Revere/Getty ImagesBellinger won NLCS MVP honors, but he's gone just 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the World Series.Porcello hasn't pitched since Oct. 17 in Game 4 of the ALCS when he allowed seven hits and four earned runs in four innings.Manny Machado (13-for-38 http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authenti...ley-jersey , 2B, 2 HR) has gaudy career numbers against Porcello, so look for him to do more damage in the middle of the Dodgers lineup.Manager Dave Roberts will have a decision to make at second base with Brian Dozier. The veteran has been used largely as a platoon option against left-handed pitching, but he has nine hits and three home runs against Porcello in his career.One way or another, the Dodgers will need to find a way to win this one, as a 3-0 deficit would leave the odds overwhelmingly stacked against them.Final Score Prediction:Dodgers 5, Red Sox 3All stats courtesy of Baseball Reference, unless otherwise noted. CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Leury Garcia on the 10-day disabled list on Monday with a left hamstring strain.The White Sox also optioned catcher Dustin Garneau to Triple-A Charlotte before their series opener against the New York Yankees. Catcher Kevan Smith was activated from the paternity list, and outfielder Ryan LaMarre was brought up from Charlotte.Garcia got hurt during Sunday’s 8-7 victory at Tampa Bay. Garcia, who has made at least one start at six different positions this season Tyson Ross Jersey , is batting .280 with four homers, 31 RBIs and 11 steals.The White Sox could have promoted Eloy Jimenez to replace Garcia on the roster but decided to keep the young outfielder in Charlotte for now. Jimenez has been tearing up minor league pitching this season and is regarded as one of baseball’s top prospects.“Ultimately it’s for the organization at the top to finally say it’s OK, let’s make this move,” manager Rick Renteria said. “I think he’s continuing to have a nice run, continuing to show that he’s capable of performing. Ultimately when we believe as an organization that it’s the right time, they’ll make that decision, and he’ll be here in due time and everybody will be, I’m sure, happy to see him.”Smith is celebrating the birth of his first child with his wife, Jess Allen Craig Jersey , a baby boy named Wyatt Daniel Smith that arrived Thursday night.“She’s very healthy, he’s very healthy, stayed that next day and went home Saturday morning,” Smith said. “He’s home, happier than could be. Both sets of grandparents are around, they’re soaking it up until they have to head home.”
