Personally, I am hoping the Dodgers win this game. Not because I am a Dodger fan, but because I am simply hoping for more baseball this year. If the Dodgers win, we have baseball on Tuesday. If the Red Sox win, MLB is put to bed until spring training.

David Price (Red Sox) vs. Clayton Kershaw (Dodgers)
Price threw six innings four days ago, and 13 pitches TWO days ago. Chris Sale was on schedule to start this game on normal rest, but:
Cora said in a 2-2 Series, Sale would be starting. But with a lead, they like the idea of Sale with extra rest if needed and Eovaldi in Game 7 if needed. Porcello can relieve and they feel Price is good physically.— Pete Abraham (@PeteAbe) October 28, 2018
We will see if that decision has an impact on this game.
Game time for Game 5: 7 p.m. CT. TV: Fox-TV. Announcers: Joe Buck, John Smoltz and Tom Verducci, with reporter Ken Rosenthal.
