The Boston Red Sox are looking to go up 2-0 on the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series, and they got some help on defense from Andrew Benintendi in Wednesday night’s fifth inning.
Brian Dozier smoked a David Price pitch deep into left field to lead off the fifth, but Andrew Benintendi made a fantastic leaping grab in front of the Green Monster to rob Dozier of extra bases.

That was a huge play and perhaps sparked the Red Sox. Boston scored three runs in the bottom half of the inning to go from a one-run deficit to a 4-2 lead.
