World Series Game Five Open Thread: David Price vs. Clayton Kershaw

Can the Dodgers force the series back to Boston?

MLB: World Series-Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Dodgers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

After blowing a 4-0 lead last night, today’s game is do-or-die for the Dodgers. I find myself saddened by the prospect of baseball ending tonight, so I’m hoping that the series gets pushed back to Boston for at least one more game. Game Seven on Halloween would be fun too. Get it together, Dodgers.

Clayton Kershaw gets the nod tonight. He’ll be looking to bounce back after surrendering five runs during Game One. Interestingly, the Red Sox opted to start David Price today rather than Chris Sale. Apparently two decent postseason outings from Price made Alex Cora think really highly of him. Few things would be more irritating than him leading Boston to a World Series win tonight, so fingers crossed that he turns back into a pumpkin.

The game starts at 8:15 and you can follow the action on FOX.
