Boston Red Sox beat Los Angeles Dodgers to win ninth title

Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History

Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History

He was hitless in four at-bats in Game 5 on Sunday night, including falling awkwardly to one knee as he swung and missed on a Chris Sale slider to end the 5-1 Red Sox victory at Dodger Stadium. No one pegged Steve Pearce as a No. 3 hitter in a World Series lineup, but the veteran utility man ended up clubbing three homers and taking home MVP honors.

Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez added solo home runs in the sixth and seventh, respectively.

Pearce powered Boston's offense through the final two games of the series, collecting seven RBIs on three home runs and a double to lead his team. Cora, a player on Boston's 2007 champions, became the first manager from Puerto Rico to win a title and just the fifth rookie skipper overall.

After Aaron Judge played "New York, New York" on his way out of Fenway Park following the Yankees' Game 2 win in the ALDS, Boston celebrated to the classic track, after finishing off New York in four games at Yankee Stadium. They trailed 4-0 in the seventh inning of Game 4 when Sale rose from the dugout bench for a fiery, profane, motivational rant, and his teammates woke up in time to rally for a 9-6 win. "The longer you stay in the game, great things can happen".

"I would definitely love it", he said. Not my start in Game 2 and coming out of the bullpen in Game 3 and all that, but this one right here - being World Series champs. Whenever Cora needed three outs to get to Craig Kimbrel, he confidently called on Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello or Nathan Eovaldi, starters by trade turned relievers by necessity. Palka was the first White Sox player with three triples in his first 20 career Major League Baseball games since Frank Thomas (who didn't hit his first home run until his 25th career game).

Despite all the good David Price had done in his stellar career that started with the Rays, the rap was that he couldn't win the big one.

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

Luckily, however, the Suns' other star - Deandre Ayton - played great and finished with a 22-point, 11-rebound double-double. Nikola Jokic scored 24 points for the Nuggets, who were off to their best start since the 2009-10 season.

"It wasn't as easy as what people think", Cora said.

Price will be hoping for similar support today when the Red Sox attempt to clinch their second title in five years.

David Price got emotional during a postgame press conference after the Red Sox won the World Series. A ninth championship is always potentially just a few short months away once spring training convenes in Fort Myers every February. I knew it was challenging with everything that goes on there.

"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.

"I can't say enough about what Clayton - what our guys did", manager Dave Roberts said. They thrived in their role, and Cora not only looks like a genius, but a genius who will soon have another World Series ring.

Backed into a corner and with their bullpen worn out, the Dodgers turned to three-time Cy Young victor Clayton Kershaw, while the Red Sox countered with their Cy Young victor Price.
