It's an elimination game for the Red Sox on Monday night, down 2-0 against Cleveland in the best-of-five game division series.

Game 3 of the ALDS against the Indians features starting pitchers Clay Buchholz for the Red Sox and Josh Tomlin for the Indians.

David Ortiz emerged from the Red Sox clubhouse Monday afternoon with many wondering if this will be his final game before retirement.

The Red Sox have looked like a much different team from the one that put together an 11-game win streak last month to get them into the playoffs. The players say the first two games of the series don't represent who they are.

They get to prove otherwise Monday.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said the team is ready to let it all hang out.

If the Sox win, Tuesday's Game 4 will be played at Fenway Park starting at either 2 or 3 p.m. Rick Porcello would be on the mound for Boston.
