  • Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History

Steve Pearce slammed a pair of home runs and David Price tossed a seven-inning gem to power the Boston Red Sox to a 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers and their fourth World Series title in 15 years on Sunday. "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". The Boston Red Sox, Major League Baseball's best team from start to finish in 2018, are World Series champions. 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 Dodgers and their fans arrived at Chavez Ravine on Sunday knowing only 13 teams had clawed their way back from 3-1 deficits to win a best-of-seven postseason series.

Following Game 4, Roberts said Hill had told him before the seventh inning to "keep an eye on me".

"I've been through a lot in three years since I came here, but this is why I came", said Price, who like Kershaw can opt out of his contract in the coming days and become a free agent. "You never know where the game will take you".

After defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-1, in Game 5, the Red Sox blared Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" inside their clubhouse, prompting a singalong among players as the champagne showers commenced.

David Price pitched the end of Game 5, and the 33-year-old put on an incredible performance. The veteran lefty has had his struggles in Boston, but he was good this season, and fantastic in the World Series.

'Jurgen Klopp says that this guy can do everything'
The Reds sit joint top of the table with champions Manchester City on 23 points, with seven wins and two draws from nine matches. In injury news, Liverpool will be without Jordan Henderson & Naby Keita are recovering from hamstring complaints.

For a long time, Price had been known for his playoff shortcomings, having never won a game.

He joined Kirk Gibson, Eddie Murray, Reggie Jackson, Johnny Bench and Yogi Berra as the only players to hit multiple homers in the clinching game of a World Series.

Pearce added the coup de grace in the eighth, touching up Pedro Baez with one final swing.

By then, fans had started planning for the April 9 home opener against Toronto, when the championship flag will be raised over Fenway after Boston opens with an 11-game trip out West.

"What a season", Cora said. The Red Sox just won the 2018 World Series. A ninth championship is always potentially just a few short months away once spring training convenes in Fort Myers every February. "We were unable to get past that hump", Machado said. 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.

Manager Alex Cora made a last-second switch to David Price, who threw seven-plus innings of one-run ball. They thrived in their role, and Cora not only looks like a genius, but a genius who will soon have another World Series ring. 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.
