The Boston Red Sox win game one of the world series 8 to 4. It was 53 degrees at first pitch and then it dropped into the mid-40s by the end of the game.
This was the coldest game for Los Angeles this season, very different from last year’s world series, when it was 103 degrees for the opener at Dodger Stadium against Houston.
Clayton Kershaw was the starting pitcher for the Dodgers, he gave up 4 runs in the first inning. Mookie Betts lined a single that set up a two-run first inning. Betts says, “It was important for us to score first and kind of put some pressure on them,” Kershaw says.
Chris Sale was the starting pitcher for the Red Sox.
It was a 4-3 game as late as the seventh inning. Then, Eduardo Nunez broke it open with a three-run pinch-hit home run.
Boston won the battle.

Maddie Pedley says , “ I normally don’t want too much baseball, but that game had me glued to the TV.”
Monica Ramos says, “ Did you see the game last night? They kept going back and forth, it was crazy.”
Will Adams says, “The first game of the 2018 World Series was very interesting. It wasn’t one of those boring baseball games, where you fall asleep during the first pitch. By having the games so close, the baseball audience will increase rapidly.”
