Boston Red Sox down Los Angeles Dodges to win 2018 World Series

Share

The quest is complete. You can get the same look, Red Sox fans (and have your own champagne celebration, if you desire).

A team to remember from top to bottom.

The Boston Red Sox clinched their ninth World Series with two games to spare when they beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 at Dodger Stadium on Sunday.

Remember, Red Sox, to say thanks the next time you're in town.

"Seeing all these grown men over there, just acting like kids, that's what it's all about", Price said after pitching three-hit ball into the eighth inning on short rest. I have no idea, " Boston's president of baseball operations said on the infield.

Alex Cora became the seventh different manager to lead the Red Sox to a World Championship.

Beck said while watching the loss was one of his least favorite experiences, being at the World Series with his sons was one of his best. During the five games, Pearce hit.333, with three home runs.

Max Muncy struck out leading off for the Dodgers, but Puig notched another World Series hit with his single to left-center. Only the 1998 Yankees (125) and the 2001 Mariners (120) captured more games.

It was a second disappointment in as many years for the Dodgers, who lost Game 7 last year to the Houston Astros.

Los Angeles went on to fall 9-6.

Boston outscored the Dodgers 28-16 and had only a slightly better batting average at.222 to.180.

He now starts a new streak with perhaps the most important RBI of his career, putting the Red Sox up three games to one in the World Series.

Boston never trailed in Game 5.

Then he announced that David Price would start Game 5 instead of Chris Sale.

White said he feared his Dodgers were turning into the NFL's Buffalo Bills, who went to the Super Bowl for four straight years in the 1990s and came away with zero championships.

Kershaw has retired 13 of his last 14 batters since giving up a two-run homer to Steve Pearce in the first inning. In Game 5, he threw seven innings with five strikeouts and only two walks. Several Red Sox players spilled from the dugout to greet him.

For Price, the start will also be an opportunity to continue to slay his post-season demons. He added with crafty trades like the one for Pearce (which included the Jays retaining US$1.5 million of his salary) and pitcher Nathan Eovaldi from the Rays. While David Price, who pitched seven strong innings, was also a strong candidate for the award, Steve Pearce, a tough competitor and uniquely skilled ballplayer, deserved the trophy more than anyone in the world. The three-time Cy Young Award victor has generally been dominating in the regular season, but he fell to 9-10 with a 4.32 ERA in 30 postseason appearances (24 starts).
