Well-travelled Pearce finds a place...as World Series MVP

L.A. Dodgers Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History

A team to remember from top to bottom.

Price was masterful in Game 5 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Sunday, continuing a dramatic October turnaround that includes wins in three straight starts, including the ALCS clincher and the Series finale, a 5-1 Red Sox victory.

David Freese answered with a solo homer for LA, sending Red Sox's David Price's first pitch over the fence and cutting Boston's lead to 2-1.

"It's very special. Seeing all these grown men over there, just acting like kids, that's what it's all about", Price said. "And I'm definitely glad that the time came and we moved past it".

All in all, the Red Sox were the better team and deserved the championship in every way.

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.

The Red Sox lefty and Clayton Kershaw have settled in nicely since giving up early home runs. "It feels right. It feels right", he said.

Overall, the first baseman went 4 for 12 and drove in eight runs.

Of course, they let loose a few choice words about the rival Yankees, too.

Chad Kelly was kicked out of Von Miller's party prior to arrest
The nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, Chad will now be subject to the NFL's waiver wire. He was kicked off the Clemson team in 2014 after arguing with coaches during the spring game.

"No, no, I don't", he said before Game 5.

"This is the greatest Red Sox team in history", owner John Henry proclaimed after receiving the Series trophy.

It was a second disappointment in as many years for the Dodgers, who lost Game 7 last year to the Houston Astros.

Boston outscored the Dodgers 28-16 and had only a slightly better batting average at.222 to.180. The right-hander won his starts in the first two rounds of the playoffs but was bad in his two World Series starts, allowing nine runs (eight earned) in 3 1/3 innings. He occupied one spot in a lineup that the Red Sox outscored 28-16, and which could get nearly nothing going in Game 5, in which everyone who was not David Freese went 1-for-26.

"I don't know because that's not up to me or a decision I can make right now", he said.

Several famous figures were among the 54,400 in attendance for Game 4 of the World Series. The Dodgers have not won the World Series since 1988. What they did Sunday night (Monday NZT) at Chavez Ravine was merely finish the job, and put the rest of baseball on notice for years to come. The first time was in 1916, when the Red Sox defeated the then-Brooklyn Robins.

That all came after he started Game 2 and pitched in relief in Game 3. After Game 4, Sox manager Alex Cora announced what seemed a bit of a gamble in strategy: that Price, and not ace Chris Sale, would start Sunday. He added with crafty trades like the one for Pearce (which included the Jays retaining US$1.5 million of his salary) and pitcher Nathan Eovaldi from the Rays. He countered accusations that he doesn't always play hard by telling Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, "I'm not the type of player that's going to be "Johnny Hustle.'" In Game 3 of the World Series, he confirmed that self-assessment by standing and admiring a ball he was certain he'd hit for a home run, winding up only on first base after it struck the wall". The three-time Cy Young Award victor has generally been dominating in the regular season, but he fell to 9-10 with a 4.32 ERA in 30 postseason appearances (24 starts). Kershaw's first six pitches all were strikes.

And just like 2017, the Dodgers were left with nothing after playing on the season's final day.
