Two innings later it would be L. A’s turn to get on the board.  The Dodgers designated hitter Matt Kemp would again get the first RBI of the contest for the Dodgers.  Matt Kemp would hit a sacrifice fly into center, with no outs and the bases loaded.  David Freese who was on third, would come into score tying the game up at one.  Also, in that inning the Dodgers number 8 hitter and right fielder Yasiel Puig would step up to the plate and muscle a soft RBI blooper over the second baseman’s head.  Manny Machado would score on the play from second, giving the Dodgers the lead 2-1. 

However, Boston would get some help with their next scoring opportunity.  In the bottom of the 5th with the bases loaded the Dodgers reliver Ryan Madson walked Steve Pearce, and Christian Vazquez came in to score tying the at 2.  Later in that inning Boston’s MVP candidate J.D. Martinez stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded and 2 outs for Boston.  J.D would single on a line drive to left field which scored Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi, giving Boston the lead one again 4-2. 

 Game 2 wrap-up

That Score would remain that way until the bottom of the 9th, when Boston’s closer Craig Kimbrel would come into the game and would earn his second save of the series by getting Matt Kemp to ground out to shortstop for the final out of the game.  Also, Kimbrel would get Boston’s second win of the series and put the Red Sox up two games to none heading into L.A.
