Weary Dodgers Fans Celebrate Historic World Series Win

Weary Dodgers Fans Celebrate Historic World Series Win

According to Google, the Boston Red Sox, who now have a 2-0 series lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers, have already won the 2018 Fall Classic.

Boston can put the brooms away, after Muncy's strike meant Los Angeles won 3-2 avoid a clean sweep and keep the World Series alive at 2-1 heading into Saturday's (other) game.

Left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez will start Game 4 for the Boston Red Sox against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series. They were four outsaway when the Red Sox's Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a home run against closerKenley Jansen for a 1-1 tie. The Red Sox stranded runners in the 10th and 11th.

But Boston pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland made his own three-run homer, landing in the right field seats, at the top of the seventh. Boston picked game two victor David Price to start on short rest against fellow lefty Clayton Kershaw.

Neither team was willing to give an inch and as the game went on, it seemed like a mistake rather than a moment of brilliance would win it. "And I had a conversation with Rich, and we talked about it".

Boston starter Rick Porcello gave up one run and three hits in 4 2/3 innings, struck out five and walked one. "I walked up and said hello, because we have a mutual friend, Winter says".




The Dodgers mobbed Muncy at home plate, celebrating the solo shot that pulled them back from the brink of a potential 3-0 Series deficit that no team has ever recovered from. The Los Angeles ace was inserted as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the 17th inning and saw four pitches from Boston's Nathan Eovaldi before lining out to right field. Rich Hill allowed one hit in 61/3 innings as the Dodgers' starting pitcher. "And at the end we paid the price", he said. The least? Dodgers reliever Ryan Madson, just two.

"Chris Sale in his leadership kind of in the middle of the game said, 'Hey, we got to get it going, ' and the guys responded", hitting coach Tim Hyers would later explain.

Los Angeles opened the scoring on a throwing error by catcher Christian Vazquez. Boston would score six more runs in the eighth and ninth innings to win the game 9-6.

He is just the third relief pitcher in World Series history to throw six innings.

Friday night's encounter at Dodgers Stadium was also the third time a play-off game had gone 18 innings, matching games played in 2005 and 2014. The Dodgers have yet to confirm their starter.
