Red Sox loving LA as Boston wrap up World Series

The Red Sox beat the Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5 behind great performances from David Price on the mound and unheralded veteran Steve Pearce at the plate to clinch the series, 4-1. When he signed with Boston he said, "I'm signing with Boston because we're going to win a World Series".

The hard-hitting first baseman returned on Sunday and hit a two-run home run in the first inning to put the visitors ahead, 2-0, and then launched a solo shot in the eighth inning that gave Boston a 5-1 lead for the final score.

Steve Pearce was named World Series MVP after hitting two home runs in the final game to help the Red Sox on their way to victory. Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez hit solo home runs.

Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox, your 2018 World Series champions. Only the New York Yankees (27) and St. Louis Cardinals (11) have more.

Nathan Eovaldi, traded to the Red Sox in July, worked in relief in three games, including his six-inning outing in Friday's 18-inning Game 3 marathon won by the Dodgers, posting a 1.16 ERA.

"You know, baseball is a amusing game", he said.

"I would definitely love it", he said. And he took a lot of heat - even from President Donald Trump - for removing an effective Rich Hill with one on and one out in the seventh inning on Saturday, handing the game to a bullpen that quickly turned a four-run lead into a five-run deficit.

After losing to Houston in Game 7 past year by the same 5-1 score, the Dodgers became the first team ousted on its home field in consecutive World Series since the New York Giants by the New York Yankees at the Polo Grounds in 1936 and '37. "This is a game we get to play". Palka was the first White Sox player with three triples in his first 20 career Major League Baseball games since Frank Thomas (who didn't hit his first home run until his 25th career game).

He has now won his last two post-season starts, after leading Boston past Los Angeles in Game 2. He went seven innings in Game 5, yielding only one run and three hits. The Red Sox join NY among four franchises to win at least nine Fall Classics since the event's 1903 inception. "I think we were extremely fortunate to get him at the time that we did".

"Chris is okay", Cora said. The Red Sox just won the 2018 World Series.

The swap was premised on getting extra rest for Sale, whose cranky shoulder is obviously an issue, for him to pitch the if-necessary Game 6 on Tuesday in Boston.

Manager Alex Cora made a last-second switch to David Price, who threw seven-plus innings of one-run ball. A ninth championship is always potentially just a few short months away once spring training convenes in Fort Myers every February. They thrived in their role, and Cora not only looks like a genius, but a genius who will soon have another World Series ring.

The Red Sox not only went 7-0 in the postseason when facing a left-handed starter, but they were 10-0 when they scored the first run of the game.
