Red Sox tab David Price for surprising World Series Game 5 start

Red Sox star Mookie Betts spotted feeding Boston homeless after Game 2 win

The Red Sox were originally going to start ex-Yankee Nathan Eovaldi in Game 4 but after he worked six innings in Game 3 that took the right-hander out of the mix. Or Steve Pearce, the first baseman with stickers from every AL East outpost on his luggage who delivered two huge hits in Game 4 - a solo home run off Kenley Jansen that tied the game at 4 in the eighth inning, and a three-run double in the ninth that gave the Sox a four-run lead? With over 53,110 fans in a packed Dodger Stadium, the match-up with the leading Red Sox saw the boys in blue finally get back in the game to garner their first win of the competition so far.

Eovaldi earned recognition and praise from all sides, as several Dodgers noted his special performance. Someday, the luck will turn for the city of Beantown, and a lot can happen between now and the Red Sox winning their fourth game of this series.

The Red Sox fell to the Dodgers, 3-2, in Game 3, a 7-hour-20-minute game, the longest in postseason history.

We'll update with more ratings from last night's historic Game 3 and the rest of the primetime offerings later as they come in.

"All I know is we're feeling pretty good about ourselves right now", Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. Who they go to for Game 5 will largely depend on how much of a role the bullpen plays on Saturday, with starter Drew Pomeranz expected to pick up a few innings after Rodríguez finishes his outing.

After pitching the eighth inning to preserve leads in the first two games of the Series, Eovaldi was the scheduled Game 4 starter.

Los Angeles trails 3-1 in the best-of-seven Series. Yasiel Puig was safe at first.

Brent for December delivery fell 76 cents, or 0.9%, to settle at $79.29 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. Under the sanctions, the United States wants all countries in the world to stop importing oil from Iran .

The stadium organist was busy, too, launching into "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" in the 14th inning - a second version of the seventh-inning stretch. "That was kind of defeating at that point, but I was able to get back and get another shot".

The Dodgers tied it 2-all in the bottom of the 13th.

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.

Then came the piercing blow, from Pearce again: a two-out, bases-clearing, three-run double from off Kenta Maeda for an 8-4 lead.

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

After throwing six pitches in relief the night before, left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez largely stymied the Dodgers until giving up Puig's homer in the sixth.

Walker Buehler threw the first pitch in autumn twilight at 5:10 p.m.
