Red Sox cap stellar season, win 4th World Series in 15 years

Adjust Comment Print

Several famous figures were among the 54,400 in attendance for Game 4 of the World Series.

Pearce has played for seven teams during a his 12-year MLB career and his trade to the American League East's Red Sox made him only the sixth player to play for each team in one division.

Brock Holt lined out, Rafael Devers took a called third strike and Christian Vazquez lined out to left. Indeed, the Dodgers seemed to be affected by one of the most debilitating defeats in franchise history the night before, when the Red Sox surmounted a four-run deficit with eight runs in the final three innings of Game 4.

For Boston, starter David Price was brilliant.

Trump's beef is about Roberts pulling starting pitcher Rich Hill in the 7th inning - despite the fact L.A. was up 4-0 at the time and he was throwing a pretty solid game.

Trump criticized the decision to remove Hill from the contest, calling it a "big mistake." Eleven people were killed by a gunman at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh early Saturday morning.

Dodgers win record seven-hour World Series game
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. An errant off-balance throw by 2B Ian Kinsler past first allowed Max Muncy to score from second base and tie it 2-2.

"I said it on the stage, it's the best Red Sox team ever", owner John Henry said after the trophy celebration.

The crowd is somewhere between nervous and excited. "This is a game we get to play. Price responded by getting Justin Turner on a grounder to short and stranded Freese when Kiké Hernandez fouled out to Martinez". 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. Boston's David Price gave up only a single to Yasiel Puig while retiring three other batters. The Sox scored their first World Series win since 2013. Chris Taylor flied out and Austin Barnes struck out.

Freese hit an opposite-field drive to right on a 91.7 miles per hour fastball that went 402 feet.

Steve Pearce hit two home runs for Boston, joining Babe Ruth and Ted Kluszewski as the only players 35 or older to have a multi-homer World Series game.

Kershaw threw 14 pitches in the first inning and Price 16.

For the second consecutive October, the baseball season ended at Chavez Ravine, Dodgers fans despondent as the Red Sox spilled out of their dugout to celebrate a fourth title since 2004.

World’s Oldest Intact Shipwreck Found at the Bottom of the Black Sea
The hull of the boat is still intact, with the deck of the ship still lined with oars and the vessel's cargo hold still sealed up. An announcement of the discovery, made by the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project (MAP), first appeared in the Guardian .

The stadium's many Boston fans, including famous ones such as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, sounded as loud as a home crowd by the final innings.

The Red Sox did more than just talk it.

Kershaw took off his glove and showed little emotion as Pearce finished his trot.

After losing on opening day, Alex Cora's team romped to a 17-2 start and a club-record 108 wins, then went 11-3 in the post-season, dispatching the 100-win New York Yankees and the 103-victory and defending champion Houston Astros in the playoffs. Boston leads 3-1 and is hoping to head home for a parade.

Los Angeles lost Game 7 of the World Series previous year to Houston, also at Dodger Stadium by the same 5-1 score.

This World Series loss was a tough one for the Dodgers, who were hoping to end a 30-year championship drought this year - their last one was in 1988.
