Dodgers win record seven-hour World Series game

Adjust Comment Print

Exhausted yet exhilarated, the Dodgers headed home for a catnap.

The Dodgers were also closing in on victory at one point.

LOS ANGELES -The end result is always what matters most, and when Friday's Game 3 finally concluded after a World Series record 18 innings and 7 hours and 20 minutes, the Dodgers won 3-2 on a walkoff homer by Max Muncy.

The series shifts to pleasantly warm Los Angeles after two games in Boston's chill - weather that Dodgers reliever Ryan Madson suggested was partly to blame for his poor performance in both games.

A year later he's starting for the team in a huge game with them down 0-2.

But the Red Sox quickly returned the favor.

"I was just laughing because everything was happening at the wrong time", Nunez said. "It was tough to swallow".

"I feel like I let the team down right there", he said. If Boston wins then the odds wildly swing even further in their favor to win it all. "And at the end we paid the price", he said.

"He hit me on the tooth with his helmet", Porcello 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. During the bottom of the 15th, the game surpassed San Francisco's 6-hour, 23-minute win over Washington that went 18 innings during the 2014 NL Division Series. Like Dante in "Clerks", he wasn't even supposed to be here today, yet there he was, taking the mound in the 13th inning and keeping the Sox in it through 97 pitches he had no business throwing. "You see them performing on the field but what they do off the field is great and that's something we do as an organization, too.This organization, off the field, is probably the best in the big leagues". And a fall classic, indeed. "It's not just one guy".

How long did they play?

Previously, no World Series matchup had ever gone past the 14th.

Long after rookie Walker Buehler dazzled over seven shutout innings for the Dodgers, things got interesting.

Game 2 of this series felt a lot like Game 1 where a couple pitching decisions by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts wound up being incorrect ones.

Now Los Angeles is back in its own elements.

Cody Bellinger made a sensational throw from center field to nail a Red Sox runner at the plate in the 10th.

Game 3 was the 12th World Series game to go 12 innings and the fourth World Series Game to go 14 innings, CBS Sports reports.

The teams combined to use 46 players, 27 position players and 19 pitchers - if you count Dodgers' ace Clayton Kershaw's pinch-hit at-bat. Not many had left by then.
