This weekend will mark the first time Dodgers’ left fielder Manny Ramirez will play in Fenway Park since departing the Red Sox.

With the Dodgers currently in a first place battle in the NL West, and the Red Sox heating up and making a push in the AL East, the series looks to be a TV ratings power boost.

The Dodgers are now in first place, following two dominant wins to begin the series with Cincinnati. They have the best record in the National League, despite numerous injuries to the pitching staff.

The Red Sox are a first-place contender in every other division but the AL East, and will be looking to move within striking distance of the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays. They are currently just three games back.

Pitching match-ups and scouting reports may be key in this series, as well as several hitters heating up. The last time the Dodgers played the Red Sox was on March 30, 2008. The Spring Training exhibition was claimed by the Dodgers in an 8-0 affair.
