Red Sox continue to mock Yankees after World Series win

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.

Los Angeles' hopes that Manny Machado would help deliver the Dodgers' first World Series title since 1988 ended up falling way short.

Mookie Betts and JD Martinez also scored home runs as the Red Sox took the best-of-seven Major League Baseball final 4-1.

After going 0-for-4 with three walks in the first three games of the World Series, Pearce hit a game-tying home run in the eighth inning of Game 4, then cleared a set of loaded bases in the ninth to blow the game wide open and secure the win. After surrendering a home run to David Freese on the first pitch, he allowed just three hits and struck out five in seven innings.

Boston Red Sox players and fans were in full party mode on Sunday evening after they clinched their ninth World Series.

Clayton Kershaw #22 of the Los Angeles Dodgers reacts during the first inning against the Boston Red Sox in Game Five of the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium on October 28, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

"It's a different mindset when you know that you're starting and you start to lock it it", Price said.

"This is why I came here", Price said on the field afterward.


David Price pitched the end of Game 5, and the 33-year-old put on an incredible performance. He might be remembered as the scapegoat for the Dodgers' failure, and he is indeed the easy target: the mercenary who was brought in to win a title and who did not, and who wasn't around long enough for anyone to get attached.

Spanning the regular season and postseason, Boston won a total of 119 games, the third-highest total in baseball history. Altogether, Price allowed three runs in 132/3 World Series innings, good for a 1.98 ERA.

Kershaw, who has never lived up to his Cy Young credentials in the postseason, endured another rough outing and gave up four runs on seven hits in seven innings of work.

By then, fans had started planning for the April 9 home opener against Toronto, when the championship flag will be raised over Fenway after Boston opens with an 11-game trip out West.

Chris Sale said he didn't like hearing the news that he wasn't going to start Game 5. The Red Sox just won the 2018 World Series.

"I guess we're streaking now", he said. They will have to decide what to do with Clayton Kershaw-the ace whose diminished fastball velocity now almost matches that of his slider-particularly if Kershaw opts out of the two years and $65 million remaining on his contract.

Alex Cora wants to take the World Series trophy to Puerto Rico. Dave Roberts, the Dodgers' manager, has been maligned for his deployment of his bullpen, but perhaps it appeared as if he struggled to pull the right strings because there were no strings to pull. They thrived in their role, and Cora not only looks like a genius, but a genius who will soon have another World Series ring. He transformed into one of the driving forces behind the latest Red Sox championship, dominating one last time on Sunday night in Chavez Ravine.
