The 2018 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers begins with a heavyweight pitching matchup.Left-handed pitchers Chris Sale and Clayton Kershaw will go head-to-head in Tuesday's opener at Fenway Park.Boston is attempting to finish off an incredible season , as it earned home-field advantage in the World Series by way of a 108-54 regular-season record.Los Angeles has been a championship-caliber team for the last few years, but it's still in search of ending its 30-year championship drought.World Series Game 1 InformationStart Time:8:09 p.m. ETTV:FoxLive Stream:Fox Sports Go or Fox Sports App.Aces Dueling in World Series OpenerGame 1 should be a showcase of two of the best arms in baseball.If they are their normal selves on the mound, Sale and Kershaw should be locked into a pitching duel for the ages.Sale enters as the fresher of the two pitchers, as he last took the mound for Game 1 of the ALCS against the Houston Astros.In three career Game 1 starts, Sale has given up 11 earned runs, seven of which came in his first postseason start in the 2017 ALDS against Houston.Elise Amendola/Associated PressAlthough it's a small sample size because he's spent his career in the American League, Sale hasn't performed well against the Dodgers, as he's given up seven earned runs on nine hits in six innings.However , Sale can be tough to hit inside Fenway Park, as he is 12-6 with a 2.83 ERA and 235 strikeouts at his home stadium.Game 1 marks the 10th time Kershaw's kicked off a series for the Dodgers, and he'll be looking to replicate his performance from the World Series opener a year ago.Matt Slocum/Associated PressKershaw tossed seven superb innings to hand the Dodgers an early advantage in the World Series against Houston.Kershaw has even less familiarity with his opponent than Sale, as Tuesday marks the first time he'll toe the rubber at Fenway Park.Based off what we expect from the two aces, Game 1 will be tight with few runners reaching scoring position, which means it will most likely come down to the bullpens once Sale and Kershaw are finished their respective outings. How Will Roberts Align Dodgers Order?Dodgers manager Dave Roberts toyed with his lineup throughout the NLCS victory over the Milwaukee Brewers in order to find the best combination possible.Roberts used four different leadoff hitters in the final four games of the NLCS, and given the matchups ahead in the World Series, he'll tinker with his order more.The Dodgers are expected to use a lineup dominated by right-handed hitters with Sale on the mound Brad Hand Jersey , which means David Freese and Matt Kemp will start Game 1.However, the inclusion of one right-handed hitter might be Roberts' toughest decision to make, as Yasiel Puig is a .250 hitter versus left-handed pitching, but he's coming off a three-hit performance in Game 7 of the NLCS.Jeff Roberson/Associated PressThe designated-hitter role gives Roberts some flexibility in the first two games, which opens up the possibility for Puig to occupy an outfield position.The Dodgers also have more positional flexibility than the Red Sox, as Chris Taylor and Cody Bellinger can be aligned in the infield or outfield.For Game 1, Roberts should let Taylor lead off with Justin Turner and Freese directly beneath him in the order.The Dodgers manager will also find a way to put Puig in the bottom third of the lineup because of his hot bat.Even though the Dodgers face left-hander David Price in Game 2, Roberts could come out with a different lineup depending on how Game 1 goes. Follow Joe on Twitter , JTansey90.Statistics obtained fromBaseball Reference. NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball is opening October by blasting the game’s so-called “unwritten rules.”MLB released an advertisement ahead of Tuesday’s postseason opener denouncing the anti-bat flip attitudes of many baseball traditionalists.“Don’t stop and stare. Don’t flip your bat. Respect the jersey,” says a narrator at the start. Meanwhile, the commercial shows Giancarlo Stanton admiring a lengthy home run, Carlos Correa tossing his bat, Mookie Betts flexing and Yasiel Puig wagging his tongue after a daring headfirst slide.It also includes Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. celebrating a home run against the Marlins. Acuna was plunked by Miami’s Jose Urena during his impressive five-game homer streak this season, an incident that put baseball’s unwritten rules back under the microscope.After Acuna, the ad cuts to Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. Griffey sports a backward baseball cap, just like he did as the fresh face of baseball in the early 1990s.“No more talk Tyson Ross Jersey ,” Griffey says. “Let the kids play.”The commercial features soundbites from a few broadcasters criticizing players, including one from longtime Turner Sports analyst Joe Simpson. The Braves announcer came under fire a few times this season, including when he labeled Dodgers veteran Chase Utley “unprofessional” for wearing a “K Cancer” T-shirt during batting practice. Simpson was left off TBS’s postseason lineup for this fall, a decision that was made last offseason.Proponents of baseball’s unspoken code of conduct have gone hard after certain players for their postseason antics. Puig is a regular target because of his energetic shenanigans, and slugger Jose Bautista was rebuked for staring down his go-ahead homer in Game 5 of the 2015 AL Division Series.The game’s conservative crowd has gotten increasing pushback from younger players and fans, especially as MLB struggles to target younger viewers. Bryce Harper campaigned in 2016 to “Make Baseball Fun Again,” while some perceive the old-timers to be unfairly forcing Latin players to conform to American cultural standards.
