Red Sox’s David Price transforms from fall guy to Mr. October

  • Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History

Palka was 3-for-25 (.120) with one home run during spring training, then hit.286 with 3 home runs in 17 games with Charlotte (AAA) before being called up in late April when Avisaíl García went on the DL with a strained right hamstring.

The quest is complete.

Cora was hired after John Farrell, who led the Red Sox to the 2013 title, was sacked following two straight early exits in the AL playoffs.

A team to remember from top to bottom.

"Seeing all these grown men over there just acting like little kids, that's what it's all about".

Red Sox manager Alex Cora revealed that he had shuffled the pitching rotation following Saturday's come-from-behind 9-6 win over the Dodgers. "I prepare. We prepare as a group, and you make decisions", he said after Game 1.

Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez added solo home runs in the sixth and seventh, respectively. To have Steve Pearce homer twice while powering the Red Sox offense to glory just might get you a lunch with a noteworthy producer. "Best feeling in my life".

But the Dodgers did not lose this series through their own mistakes. But this time around, he's doing it as the head honcho, leading his Boston Red Sox to baseball's promised land.

Of course, they let loose a few choice words about the rival Yankees, too. I don't know how many Dodger games he's watched.

Players' families, many dressed in red, congregated on the field to join the celebration, some holding babies, some watching children run across the outfield in glee.

And one who, after 10 years of trying, will soon will have a World Series ring.

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

The St Louis Cardinals have won 11, while the New York Yankees remain way ahead with 27 wins.

Boston never trailed in Game 5.

"When you say that it's nearly overwhelming", Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said. "He made us a better team when he came over here".

The 33-year-old Price, a Cy Young Award victor in 2012, long pitched under an October shadow cast by his regular-season success. The left-hander won his third straight start Sunday and became the first pitcher to beat Cy Young winners in the finale of an LCS and the World Series in the same year. I've got three days now to think about all that stuff before anything happens. His two-out solo blast to left gave Boston a four-run lead, one protected by Joe Kelly and Chris Sale over the final two innings.

He had a rough go of it - 0 for 8 with an RBI (a groundout) - in his first two Major League Baseball games before breaking out in game one of an April 28 doubleheader at Kansas City.

"All the haters, it's time to be quiet and show the guy some respect", Martinez said.

Pearce struck again in the eighth with another homer before pitcher Chris Sale closed off the game in the following inning. Sale ended by throwing a slider past a falling Manny Machado, a meager 4 for 22 (.182) in the Series, and raised both arms. Hill was eventually charged with an earned run allowed by the bullpen. During the NLCS, he was criticized for not hustling during a groundout, kicking Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar near the ankle as he jogged out a groundout (which drew a $10,000 fine) and for a pair of hard slides into Orlando Arcia in Game 3 while the Milwaukee shortstop was attempting to turn double plays. I got to look forward to it for the first time in a long time.

Pearce finished the World Series hitting 4-for-12 with eight RBIs, three home runs and four walks. 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).
