The world series looks like standing between two teams Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants.
Two teams with a good shot of going to the World Series meet Wednesday for part 2 of a two-game series, as the Boston Red Sox host the San Francisco Giants.
Drew Pomeranz, who was traded from San Diego over the All-Star break, is making his debut for Boston. He faces a team he’s very familiar with, having pitched against the Giants three times this season with a 0-2 result and an ERA of 2.60. The Giants respond with Matt Cain, who was struggling this season before suffering a hamstring injury and being put on the disabled list for a month.
It wasn’t that long ago that Kyle Hendricks was a prospect in the Rangers organization, a year out of Dartmouth, but desired and landed by the Chicago Cubs in a deal that sent pitcher Ryan Dempster to Texas.
Hendricks is part of a group of former prospects dealt in deadline-day deals who are paying off big time for the teams that got them. He starts at 2 p.m. ET Wednesday against the Mets on ESPN/WatchESPN.
