Red Sox 5, Dodgers 1

Longest ever World Series Game

A calming presence in a boiling sports cauldron, Cora capped off one of the greatest runs by a first-year skipper in leading Boston to the World Series championship. And Steve Pearce, a 2016 Ray, knocked in eight runs in the Series, hitting a pair of homers Sunday, including a two-run shot in the first, after hitting a tying blast in the eighth in Saturday's Game 4 win. During the five games, Pearce hit.333, with three home runs.

The Red Sox also became the third franchise to win a World Series in four consecutive appearances, along with the Cardinals and Yankees. They traded a slightly more heralded minor league pitcher for Nathan Eovaldi in late July; Eovaldi threw a heroic six innings in relief in the 18-inning Game 3, even if it ended up as the Red Sox' the only loss. They won the seven game series in game five against the LA Dodgers on Sunday, October 28, with a final score of 5-1. I've got three days now to think about all that stuff before anything happens. After both teams made it through game three - the seven-hour-plus game that made Major League Baseball history for it's tenure - it was Boston who took it all!

While Price rewrote his own October legacy, Kershaw was unable to do the same as he fell to 1-4 with a 6.06 ERA in postseason elimination games. It seems to me there's a Christmas shopping season coming up. He might be remembered as the scapegoat for the Dodgers' failure, and he is indeed the easy target: the mercenary who was brought in to win a title and who did not, and who wasn't around long enough for anyone to get attached. David Freese hit a leadoff home run in the first inning for the Dodgers, who finished with just three hits Sunday.

Kershaw, who has never lived up to his Cy Young credentials in the postseason, endured another rough outing and gave up four runs on seven hits in seven innings of work.

Despite all the good David Price had done in his stellar career that started with the Rays, the rap was that he couldn't win the big one.

Pearce is headed to free agency, but after the thump he provided against left-handed pitching this year, the Red Sox should be hot on his trail.

Chris Sale said he didn't like hearing the news that he wasn't going to start Game 5. Cora said he imagined his home town "going crazy" after the Red Sox's World Series win. They went 22-9-1 in spring training. "But DP held the hot hand and he's carried us through this postseason as one of our starters, plus I got a chance to go old school".

"This was a tough one for us tonight, it really was", Kershaw, who now will need to decide if he will exercise the opt-out clause in his contract, said.

Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill didn't appreciate President Donald Trump's tweet criticizing manager Dave Roberts for taking him out of Game 4.

He got to the plate one time in Boston's sweep of the 2007 World Series, putting down a sacrifice bunt for a team led by David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Manny Ramirez. The first time was in 1916, when the Red Sox defeated the then-Brooklyn Robins.
