Red Sox beat Dodgers to win World Series

Red Sox beat Dodgers to win World Series

The Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game Five at Dodger Stadium to wrap up the victory in a record-shattering season for the team.

Price said winning the World Series was the whole reason he came to Boston.

After going 0-for-4 with three walks in the first three games of the World Series, Pearce hit a game-tying home run in the eighth inning of Game 4, then cleared a set of loaded bases in the ninth to blow the game wide open and secure the win.

Really, you expect to get beaten by guys like Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez (who both also homered in Game 5).

Boston's ninth World Series title sees the team tie with the Oakland Athletics for the third-most wins in Major League Baseball history. Entering this year's tournament with a career 5.03 post-season ERA - and zero wins in nine starts - the noise only got louder when the Yankees knocked him around in Game 2 of the ALDS at Fenway Park, scoring three runs in 12/3 innings. "The longer you stay in the game, great things can happen". "Remember this, and come back next year-come back even stronger". And he took a lot of heat - even from President Donald Trump - for removing an effective Rich Hill with one on and one out in the seventh inning on Saturday, handing the game to a bullpen that quickly turned a four-run lead into a five-run deficit.


After defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-1, in Game 5, the Red Sox blared Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" inside their clubhouse, prompting a singalong among players as the champagne showers commenced.

Members of the Hall of Fame collected the following items to bring with them to Cooperstown and put on display: Alex Cora's hoodie, Pearce's Game 4 bat, Price's Game 5 jersey, Nathan Eovaldi's cap and spikes, Eduardo Nunez's bat, Brock Holt's helmet, Joe Kelly's glasses, Game 3 home plate umpire Ted Barrett's ball/strike clicker. "He knew Boston. I think he excels in dealing with the media, which in Boston is a bigger job than some other places". He went deep to left in the eighth inning off Pedro Baez.

For Boston, starter David Price was brilliant.

For a long time, Price had been known for his playoff shortcomings, having never won a game.

"Chris is okay", Cora said. He led the Red Sox to their best season in the franchise's 118-year history - and it's near the top of the sport all-time. The Red Sox just won the 2018 World Series.


Boston went 7-1 on the road in the postseason and 10-0 overall when scoring first.

"I guess we're streaking now", he said.

"This was a tough one for us tonight, it really was", Kershaw, who now will need to decide if he will exercise the opt-out clause in his contract, said.

This was the sixth consecutive year the Dodgers were in the postseason, but it wasn't quite as straightforward to get back to this point.

That all came after he started Game 2 and pitched in relief in Game 3. Dave Roberts, the Dodgers' manager, has been maligned for his deployment of his bullpen, but perhaps it appeared as if he struggled to pull the right strings because there were no strings to pull.
