Game 2 of the World Series is over and it had a very similar result as Game 1 with the Boston Red Sox doubling up the Los Angeles Dodgers at Fenway Park. This time, the Red Sox won 4-2.

Clayton Kershaw’s postseason struggles continued for the Dodgers in Game 1. But in Game 2, the Red Sox had two pitchers with their own shaky playoff pasts come through in a big way. For the second day in a row, Los Angeles’ bullpen imploded. And for the second day in a row, Boston’s big-money offseason acquisition came through in a big way for the Red Sox.

These were the biggest winners and losers from Boston’s Game 2 triumph.
