The Boston Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2 to extend their lead to 2-0 in the ongoing World Series on Thursday night.

The Dodgers appeared to be in control of the game up until J.D. Martinez snatched a comeback with two outs in the fifth inning. David Price added another outing while the bullpen helped secure the final point in Thursday’s Game 2 matchup.

“We knew we were going to have a good team, good lineup, good chemistry, and good energy—but not that good,” Boston’s Eduardo Nunez said. “We can beat you with homers; defense, pitching, base hits, stolen bases. I think we have it all.”

Nunez isn’t wrong. After they won 108 games in the regular season, Boston has won nine of 11 games in the playoffs. The third game of the World Series will be played in LA but the Red Sox team couldn’t be more confident.

The Dodgers fell to the Houston Astros at a time like this year. If they lose to Boston in LA, they will become the first team to lose consecutive World Series games since the Giants in 1936 and 1937, both times to the Yankees.
