The American League consists of the following teams: Baltimore Orioles; Boston Red Sox; Chicago White Sox; Cleveland Indians; Detroit Tigers; Houston Astros; Kansas City Royals; Los Angeles Angels; Minnesota Twins; New York Yankees; Oakland Athletics; Seattle Mariners; Tampa Bay Rays; Texas Rangers; and Toronto Blue Jays. In Wednesday's Game 2, he provided the game-winning, two-run single in the fifth inning to give Boston a 4-2 lead.
The three-time World Series champion hasn't been shy in sharing his political opinions since retirement, often with career consequences.
And they'll face right-handed Red Sox starting pitcher Rick Porcello, which means matchup-happy Dodgers manager Dave Roberts will insert the team's top four home run hitters - back into the starting lineup after they started Games 1 and 2 in the dugout.
In other words, they'll be hoping Martinez can go on Friday.
Game 3 starts at 8 p.m. ET, and will air on Fox.
If Martinez plays the outfield, then either Betts, center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. or left fielder Andrew Benintendi would lose their spot. There had been speculation Betts could play second base - he made 14 starts there as a rookie in 2014, and played six innings at the spot in August after Ian Kinsler was hurt.
Now, that is true, but having said that, when you do not have home field advantage, you do have to win one away game.
