Longest-ever World Series game smashes some home-run memes

Longest-ever World Series game smashes some home-run memes

The Red Sox will surprisingly turn to David Price for the start in a potential World Series-clinching Game 5. He hasn't pitched a proper postseason game since Game 1 of the World Series, however, when he tossed four innings of five-run, five-strikeout ball in an 8-4 loss to the Red Sox.

For the second straight night, a late Red Sox homer off Dodgers relief ace Kenley Jansen set up the late-game drama.

Eovaldi earned recognition and praise from all sides, as several Dodgers noted his special performance.

After being traded this past offseason from the Tigers to the Los Angeles Angels, he was dealt again to the Red Sox at this year's trade deadline.


Los Angeles finally won 3-2 on Max Muncy's home run off Nathan Eovaldi in the 18th, ending the longest game in post-season history after 7 hours, 20 minutes. They blew the same lead in Game 5 against the Houston Astros before losing in seven. "This team has a lot of fight, and it was great to see how we responded". "It is unbelievable how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through nearly 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever (s) who get shellacked". With a 9-6 victory, the Red Sox grabbed a 3-1 Series lead and kept rolling toward their fourth title in 15 seasons. I just had the last out in my glove and couldn't get it over there. Madson got Bradley to pop out, but then his first-pitch changeup to pinch hitter Mitch Moreland disappeared into the right-field bleachers for a stunning, three-run homer.

Once J.D. Martinez went down swinging for the third out, the crowd of 53,114 erupted and Buehler, usually unemotional, let out a roar and exhorted the fans to get even louder. Bellinger returns to the starting lineup in Game 3 on Friday night after beginning the first two games on the bench.

Clayton Kershaw, a three-time NL Cy Young Award victor with a.163 career batting average, pinch hit in the 17th inning and lined out.

Primo's Donuts has donuts complete with the Dodgers' logo for those looking for a sweet treat to match a sweet victory.


It's a best-of-seven series, Silicon Valley.

Pearce even scored Boston's ninth run on Xander Bogaerts' single, celebrating wildly with his teammates in quiet Chavez Ravine.

After Friday night's 18-inning game, the Dodgers have shortened batting practice to 30 minutes and made it optional.

After throwing only six pitches of relief in Game 3, Eduardo Rodriguez largely stymied the Dodgers over the first five innings.


Gibson was introduced to throw the ceremonial first pitch, then Eckersley came out and the two hugged on the mound.
