Dodgers' marathon win over Red Sox smashes records

Mookie Betts lauded for feeding homeless after World Series Game 2 win

The Red Sox were 9-0 this postseason when scoring first - which is every game in the ALDS, ALCS and the first two games of this series. The eight pitchers who followed Porcello did not give up an earned run over the next 12 1/3 innings, but the longer the game went on, the more it figured to have a huge impact on the Red Sox's pitching plans for the remaining two games at Dodger Stadium. The latter would be the more aggressive play, but the Red Sox can afford to play it safe knowing they'll be going back to Boston with a chance to win it all if need be. Nathan Eovaldi, who had been set to start Game 4, made his third relief appearance of the week and pitched a flawless inning, topping 101 miles per hour with his fastball.

Boston manager Alex Cora made all sorts of moves, trying to help his team take a 3-0 lead.

Evoking memories of Kirk Gibson's winning pinch-hit homer in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series, Muncy came within feet of ending it in the bottom of the 15th. The DH role will not be used Friday when the Red Sox take their 2-0 lead into Dodger Stadium to face Los Angeles.

Boston can put the brooms away, after Muncy's strike meant Los Angeles won 3-2 avoid a clean sweep and keep the World Series alive at 2-1 heading into Saturday's (other) game. He proved it again in sixth on Friday, when he roped a long drive to left field. Yasiel Puig set the play in motion with a hard grounder up the middle.

"Those last nine innings or so just kind of blended together". Instead, the veteran second baseman muffed his throw to first base, allowing Muncy to score and Puig to celebrate at first instead of taking second base.

But the Red Sox couldn't close it out. Nunez hit a slow roller between the mound and first base that Alexander fielded, but his throw to first was wide and trickled past the bag and down the line. He stayed in, then delivered a key hit Wednesday night in Game 2 at Fenway Park.




The game smashed the previous longest World Series records of 14 innings in 2015, 2005 and 1916.

But the Dodgers' vaunted closer shook it off to pitch a flawless ninth.

A Red Sox' victory appeared a fait accompli in the top of the 10th, with two on, one out and Eduardo Nunez pinch-hitting for the whiff-prone Rafael Devers.

"All I know is we're feeling pretty good about ourselves right now, to have two more games at home, but right now our focus is (Saturday)", he said. We expect Richie to come out with some fire like he always has. Up against the Houston Astros' triumph over the Dodgers in Game 3 of the 2017 World Series on October 27 of that year, last night's match-up stumbled 10% in the tally from 56 markets across the nation.

"This was a gut-wrenching game for both sides", Muncy said.
