Longest-ever World Series game smashes some home-run memes

Mookie Betts

In the wake of Friday night's epic, 3-2, 18-inning victory by the Dodgers, which set Fall Classic records for its length in innings and time (seven hours and 20 minutes), Boston sleepwalked through the first six innings, totaling a single and three walks against Dodgers starter Rich Hill.

"The troops rallied behind him", Red Sox hitting coach Tim Hyers said.

The improbable surge started with pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland's three-run homer in the seventh, shortly after Yasiel Puig's three-run homer in the sixth had put the Dodgers up 4-0. Boston picked game two victor David Price to start on short rest against fellow lefty Clayton Kershaw.

In Game 5, he took the loss in a 10-inning defeat.

Red Sox: Price gave up two runs and three hits over six innings in Game 2 for his second consecutive postseason win. Pearce has five RBIs and four walks in the World Series alone, with no strikeouts.

The Dodgers mobbed Muncy at home plate, celebrating the solo shot that pulled them back from the brink of a potential 3-0 Series deficit that no team has ever recovered from.

Trump injects tax-cut talk in the closing weeks of midterm campaign
The House and Senate are out of town and not slated to return before the midterm elections in early November. Bush's tenure were extended in 2012 during Barack Obama's administration, for example.

Instead, momentum has shifted to Los Angeles who still need to win three out of four games to win the World Series, but it is a task they are very capable of completing.

Boston leads the best-of-seven Series 2-1.

Because Buehler was able to get through seven innings, the Dodgers bullpen is not quite as taxed going into Game 4 as the Red Sox, who only got 4.2 innings out of their starter Rick Porcello.

Nearly lost amid Muncy's late inning fireworks was a superb performance from Dodgers rookie starter Walker Buehler who pitched a seven inning gem.

"I think my beard got about 3 inches longer", said Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, whose red whiskers already were Santa length. Most of LA's bullpen can throw again on Saturday night, since none of the eight relievers threw more than two innings or Kenta Maeda's 36 pitches. The ebullient Cuban right fielder has gone in and out of favor in Los Angeles, but his homer was his 50th postseason hit, fourth-most in Dodgers history.

Outspoken US leader Trump was less than impressed with what transpired, hitting out at Roberts after he removed Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill following 6.3 innings. Xander Bogaerts, who had a clutch knock in the ninth inning, is batting.105 (2-for-19). The Dodgers have yet to confirm their starter.
