Red Sox’s David Price transforms from fall guy to Mr. October

Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrates his 18th-inning walk-off home run to defeat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 in Game 3 of the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium on Oct. 26 2018 Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History

Steve Pearce #25 of the Boston Red Sox celebrates his first inning two-run home run against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game Five of the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium on October 28, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. "My first couple years I was in the bullpen and I got to throw the last pitch of a world series so I can't complain".

Really, you expect to get beaten by guys like Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez (who both also homered in Game 5). Kelly and Sale, the scheduled Game 6 starter, combined to strike out six consecutive hitters to set up the best cross-country flight home imaginable.

The Red Sox clinched their ninth World Series title with a lethal combination of power and pitching. Only the New York Yankees (27) and St. Louis Cardinals (11) have more.

All that stood between the Red Sox and a sweep was an 18-inning loss in Game 3, the longest World Series game ever.

Dodgers fans stood and shouted for a rally one last time in the eighth inning when down 5-1, but many headed to the exits once it ended. "The longer you stay in the game, great things can happen".

"This is why I came here", Price said on the field afterward.

But the Dodgers did not lose this series through their own mistakes.

Price, who dominated on the mound and helped the Red Sox defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games, took a moment to soak everything in before answering one particular question that struck a chord.


"For us to be able to turn that double play, it was huge", Price said. It seems to me there's a Christmas shopping season coming up. David Freese hit a leadoff home run in the first inning for the Dodgers, who finished with just three hits Sunday. Starting in the seventh inning of Game 4, an astounding seven straight Dodgers reliever allowed at least one earned run. Not by a 35-year-old journeyman.

While he certainly made it look easy from April to October, Cora said that was not always the case.

David Price got emotional during a postgame press conference after the Red Sox won the World Series.

Boston went 7-1 on the road in the postseason and 10-0 overall when scoring first. "I think we were extremely fortunate to get him at the time that we did". They will have to decide what to do with Clayton Kershaw-the ace whose diminished fastball velocity now almost matches that of his slider-particularly if Kershaw opts out of the two years and $65 million remaining on his contract.

To have Alex Cora become just the third rookie manager to steer his club to a title since 1961 likely starts a bidding war between every major studio in town for a working draft of the script.

That all came after he started Game 2 and pitched in relief in Game 3.

"I can't say enough about what Clayton - what our guys did", manager Dave Roberts said.

Despite their rich baseball histories, this was only the second time these two teams faced each other in the World Series. It's one of the many traits that made him such a great manager in his first season in Boston, and why so many believe even more good times are ahead for the Cora-led Red Sox.
