Los Angeles Dodgers fans boo Dave Roberts before World Series Game 5

"He's the same guy in the first inning as he is in the ninth inning of a 10-1 ballgame or 3-3 ballgame". David Freese hit a solo home run to right field on Price's first pitch of the game.

Pearce homered twice Sunday night - his third blast in two games - as Boston defeated Los Angeles 5-1 to win the World Series four games to one as Pearce took home MVP honors. To have Steve Pearce homer twice while powering the Red Sox offense to glory just might get you a lunch with a noteworthy producer.

Remember, Red Sox, to say thanks the next time you're in town. "He was really good in so many ways", Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski said before Game 5. When they sent five players to Baltimore to acquire three and a half months of his services, they were 53-43 (a.552 winning percentage), just a half game up in the NL West. He struck out five.

Sale came out of the 'pen firing gas and struck out all three batters he faced, finishing the game by fanning Manny Machado. 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. The Red Sox won 108 games this season, 16 more than LA. Only the New York Yankees (27) and St. Louis Cardinals (11) have more.

Alex Cora became the seventh different manager to lead the Red Sox to a World Championship. The Red Sox join NY among four franchises to win at least nine Fall Classics since the event's 1903 inception.

Chris Sale said he didn't like hearing the news that he wasn't going to start Game 5. "Everything starts with these guys". "To answer that question in spring training day and day and day and day, and over and over and over and over, anytime it got to September, playoffs - I hold all the cards now". They've been very consistent as far as preparation, going about their business. The Red Sox just won the 2018 World Series.




The Red Sox won a franchise record and Major League Baseball best 108 games during the 162-game regular season and continued that domination in the World Series to win a fourth title in 15 years.

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.

The Dodgers, the National League champion and in the World Series for the second year in a row, were trying to win their seventh title and first since 1988.

Kershaw, who now has the choice to opt out of his Dodgers contract, was left with yet another postseason disappointment. "Myself personally, it was tough. If necessary in Game 6, he's the starter". "And honestly when I'm done here, I shower, I get in that vehicle, I might get a text and say, "Go to the pharmacy and get some diapers for the kids". "I think that there's a lot of thoughts and opinions that people don't have all the information, which is commonplace these days and cultivate opinions and give out there".

Joe Kelly turned into Cora's most trusted reliever in the World Series. He tapped his heart several times to Red Sox fans behind the first base dugout while walking to the bench.
