The 2018 World Series is the fourth trip to the games in the last 15 years for the Red Sox, who won championships in 2004, 2007 and 2013. The Dodgers and Red Sox have met once before in the World Series, back in 1916 with Boston beating Brooklyn behind a big game from pitcher Babe Ruth.
The fiery right-hander allowed seven earned runs in 2.1 innings, amounting to a 7.71 ERA, through his first three NLCS appearances.
How many innings can Hader go in Game 7? The three-time Cy Young Award victor, pitching on two days of rest after starting Game 5, finished off the Brewers by striking out Mike Moustakas in a flawless ninth.

Walker Buehler - the first rookie to start a Game 7 for the Dodgers since Joe Black in 1952 - gave his team a chance by allowing one earned run on six hits over 4 ²/₃ innings with seven strikeouts. After appearing in 10 playoff games without a single home run, the outfielder blasted a 1-1 knuckle curve to center field to pad the Dodgers' lead. Julio Urias replaced Buehler to get the final out of the fifth on Yelich's shot. He robbed Yelich of an extra-base hit with a runner on second and two outs. Brewers' left-hander Josh Hader entered the game in the third inning and dominated the opposition for three scoreless innings, then was replaced on the mound by fellow lefty Xavier Cedeño. Manny Machado, the object of nonstop boos from Milwaukee fans, obliged with the same gesture as he watched from the dugout steps.
The Dodgers responded in the top of the second, however, as Bellinger hit a two-run homer into the second deck in right to give Los Angeles a 2-1 lead.
The mighty Dodgers, who hit an NL-best 235 homers, outslugged the Brewers, who were second in the league with 218.
