Fenway Park gave the Dodgers the cold shoulder.
No wonder they were California Dreamin ‘about Thursday’s flight home.
“I think all the players are happy about going back to LA, but obviously we have some games to win, “pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu said through a translator after Wednesday night’s 4-2 loss to Boston dropped the Dodgers into a 2-0 World Series hole. “I think all the other players will be able to focus more and try to come back from this deficit.”
Where will these Yankees end up?
Fenway Park, at 106 the oldest big league ballpark, is crammed onto 9 acres in downtown Boston, the 37-foot-high Green Monster in left field, a target for hitters and a terror for pitchers.
Dodger Stadium, a modern ballpark when opened in 1962 but now the third-oldest, sits atop 300 acres of land in Chavez Ravine near downtown Los Angeles, surrounded by tiered parking lots with palm trees beyond the fences and the San Gabriel Mountains shimmering in the distance.
While Fenway is urban tumult, Dodger Stadium symbolizes the sunny Californian way of life . But expect a pumped up crowd for Game 3 on Friday, especially after Vin Scully’s recorded call of “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!”
“It’s going to be warmer, and hopefully our bats get hot, too,” Cody Bellinger said.
Used to the balmy breezes at home and usually hospitable weather in the West, Los Angeles had not started a game this year in a temperature below 58. Facing a 53-degree chill at the beginning of the opener, the dodgers lose 8-4. It was just 46 in the first inning for Game 2, and the Dodgers’ bats were cold again – their last 16 hitters retired in order.
“This is the first time we’ve played in obviously weather like this – San Francisco a little bit, but nothing like this, “manager Dave Roberts said before the game. “Så det er en justering, og det er en del av hjemmemarkedets fordel og især at være i bullpen, hvor du har en lille heater, men stadig har to børn eller få hot og stay hot. Det er mere af en udfordring.”  No team has overcome a 2-0 Series deficit since 1996, when the Yankees lost twice at home to Atlanta before sweeping three games on the road and winning game 6 in New York.
“We’ve got a tough road ahead or us, man, “Matt Kemp said.
