Facts About World Series Game 3, An 18-Inning Affair to Remember

  • Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler

Recalling 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.

Call it fitting, call it a microcosm, call it who they are and who they have been all along.

The Red Sox announced the decision on Twitter about four hours before Saturday's game at Dodger Stadium.

Then came the piercing blow, from Pearce again: a two-out, bases-clearing, three-run double from off Kenta Maeda for an 8-4 lead. They started slow, failing to muster a hit off Rich Hill until the fifth inning. With over 53,110 fans in a packed Dodger Stadium, the match-up with the leading Red Sox saw the boys in blue finally get back in the game to garner their first win of the competition so far. Now, this is assured: There will be no four-game losing streak this season. "He's one of our aces", shortstop Manny Machado said.

Fastballs and cutters. Occasional sliders and splits.

After Pearce broke the game wide open in the ninth inning, the Sox padded the lead with a Xander Bogaerts RBI-single. Devers is now a.317 career hitter in 46 postseason at-bats, with 14 runs batted in in 14 games, including nine in 10 games this year. And now, after throwing six-plus innings in all, he'll be unavailable less than 17 hours later for Game 4. Eovaldi took the loss working six innings giving up just three hits, two runs, one earned.


"I think my beard got about 3 inches longer", said Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, whose red whiskers already were Santa length.

Price started Game 2 back in Boston and threw 13 pitches in relief in Game 3, so he'll be on short rest and then some for Game 5. That means someone else who typically starts is going to be on the bench.

That's what Red Sox manager Alex Cora dropped on the way out of a postgame press conference after a 9-6 victory over the Dodgers moved his club to within a win of copping a World Series title.

Pitchers were knocking on Cora's door trying to offer their services for a Game 4 start. He did have a decent excuse.

Shortly after Yasiel Puig's three-run homer in the sixth put the Dodgers up 4-0, Boston's incredible surge began with pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland's three-run homer. 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. "That was kind of defeating at that point, but I was able to get back and get another shot".

The 35-year-old journeyman connected off All-Star closer Kenley Jansen for a tying homer in the eighth, and cleared the bases one inning later with a double to the gap. No more of the New Buckner stuff? One more win works for me, too.
