Fans endured record heat to celebrate a Dodgers victory in Game 1 of the World Series, and more heat is on the way for Wednesday night's match-up with Houston.
Tuesday's Game 1 was the warmest World Series game on record at 103 degrees. The previous record of 94 degrees was Game 1 of the 2001 World Series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Yankees in Phoenix on Oct. 27, 2001. Major League Baseball ordered the roof at then-Bank One Ballpark to be open.
Fans will feel fortunate to find shade Wednesday at wide open Dodger Stadium, where temperatures will be in the high-90s. First pitch is at 5:09 p.m.
Triple-digit temperatures are forecast for parts of Southern California and the risk of fire is extreme. Small brush fires broke out Tuesday in the San Fernando Valley and along a freeway in San Bernardino County.
Red flag warnings are scheduled to expire Wednesday night. The red flag warnings were scheduled to be in effect everywhere in Los Angeles County, except for the Antelope Valley, and parts of Ventura County until 6 p.m.
Wednesday night's pitching match-up features Rich Hill for LA and ace Justin Verlander for Houston.
