Game 1 of the World Series is finally upon us and we couldn’t have asked for a better matchup. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox are two of the most storied franchises in Major League Baseball, and they added to that history this year; Boston led all teams in the MLB with 108 wins, while the Dodgers overcame significant questions down the stretch. Now two of the three highest payroll teams in baseball will go toe-to-toe in a best-of-seven for the ultimate prize.

Come Tuesday, Chris Sale will check off another first in his career: starting a World Series game. After battling a stomach illness for much of the ALCS, the big lefty is healthy and well rested. As a result, Red Sox Manager, Alex Cora, has called upon Sale to kick off the series.
The Dodgers’ Game 1 starter has yet to be announced, but given the five days since Klayton Kershaw’s last start, don’t be surprised if you see the top two lefties in the league match up on Tuesday. With that type of firepower on the mound, be prepared for a game that could be decided by a single pivotal play. The drama will get underway at 8:09 PM ET.
