Here’s an article detailing the 13 times a team has come from down two games to none in a seven-game series to win (10 times in the World Series, three in the LCS).

Honestly? I don’t think the Dodgers are going to do this. It’s pretty clear from Games 1 and 2 that the Red Sox are the superior team in this World Series.

I do think L.A. can win at least one of the next two games; this won’t be a sweep. At least I hope so; so far this World Series has been pretty dull (unless you’re a Red Sox fan), the games somewhat boring and one-sided. Most of this postseason has been that way, too, after two years’ worth of thrilling series in 2016 and 2017.

Lineups!
