After losing the first two games of the 2018 World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers return to Chavez Ravine with their backs against the wall – and with the Boston Red Sox firmly in command. Saturday’s Game 4 could be the last game of the season if the Dodgers don’t shape up; FOX has the coverage at 8:09 PM ET.

Both teams will sort out their starting rotations after Wednesday’s Game 2, which the Red Sox won 4-2 as –150 favorites. They used Nathan Eovaldi for an inning of relief; he threw just 13 pitches, so he should be ready to start Game 4 if required. Boston plans to use Rick Porcello for Game 3 on Friday, while Los Angeles will go with Walker Buehler in a virtual must-win situation.
Being down 2-0 in the World Series is obviously a major disadvantage for the Dodgers, but they’ve been here before. In 1955, 1965 and 1981, they came all the way back to win the championship. However, the team up 2-0 has won the World Series a little over 80% of the time. The Red Sox did just that in 2004 and 2007, sweeping St. Louis and Colorado respectively.
