Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Max Muncy (13) gets his jersey ripped off as he celebrates after hitting a walk off solo home run against the Boston Red Sox in the 18th inning in game three of the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium.

Here's a list of things you could have done in the span of this baseball game.

The performance came after Buehler pitched the Dodgers past Colorado in a tiebreaker for the NL West title and then started Game 7 of the NL Championship Series at Milwaukee as Los Angeles won its second straight pennant.

A homer that rallied the Dodgers when they were dangerously close to falling behind 0-3 and stretched to their absolute limit in the longest game in which any of their players had ever participated.

The longest game in World Series history was bananas. Baseball is wonderful and awful.

A Red Sox' victory appeared a fait accompli in the top of the 10th, with two on, one out and Eduardo Nunez pinch-hitting for the whiff-prone Rafael Devers. That gave the Dodgers the game and set the stage for them to sweep the heavily favored Oakland A's. If the Red Sox pick up a win in Game 4 and take a 3-1 lead in the World Series, his Game 3 miscue will move from infamy to the rearview.

At 36, Kinsler's hardly the player he was in his prime, but the former Gold Glover has always been one of the league's best defenders at second base.


The Sox were one out away from taking a commanding a 3-0 series lead. "I feel like I let the team down right there and next opportunity try to seize it".

Game 4 is Saturday, with Rich Hill scheduled to start for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers got a home run from Joc Pederson in the third inning but were heldscoreless over the next 10 innings by Red Sox starter Rick Porcello, alongwith a string of eight relievers.

The Dodgers munched on peanut butter and banana sandwiches provided by a team employee, and hung the bananas to produce fruitful luck - harkening back to the rally banana credited by Enrique Hernandez for helping end a 35-inning scoreless streak three years ago.

"Standing room for Game 6 at least $700", Mullarkey said. An errant off-balance throw by 2B Ian Kinsler past first allowed Max Muncy to score from second base and tie it 2-2.

Eovaldi threw more than one-third of Boston's 283 pitches, allowing two runs - one earned - and three hits in six innings. And Nunez hurt himself a final time in the bottom of the inning, when he hauled in a catch in foul territory on the third-base side, then fell into the stands.
