Boston Red Sox Beat LA Dodgers To Seal World Series Win

Boston Red Sox Beat LA Dodgers To Seal World Series Win

With the fingerprints of former Blue Jays prominent right to the triumphant end, the winningest team in all of baseball finished off one of the most impressive playoff runs in history Sunday with a resounding 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Boston Red Sox celebrate their 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 to win the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium on Sunday night.

Pearce took it upon himself to fill the void left by Betts for most of this Fall Classic, and he jump-started the Red Sox with a two-run shot off Clayton Kershaw in the first inning.

The Red Sox also became just the third franchise to win in four straight trips to the World Series, following up championships in 2004, 2007 and 2013. He's just the fifth rookie skipper to do it overall.

That made it two homers and a three-run double for Pearce in his last three at-bats.

"Top to bottom, a complete team effort, " J.D. Martinez said of the Red Sox domination in October.

Having also lost the 2017 final to Houston, the Dodgers' wait for a first World Series since 1988 continues. I have no idea, " Boston's president of baseball operations said on the infield. "Remember this, and come back next year-come back even stronger".

"We are a bunch of grinders", Pearce said, "and this is exactly where we knew we were going to be".

Kike Hernandez cut into Boston's lead with a two-run homer in the ninth off Craig Kimbrel.

"As a guy living in Pittsburgh, let me just ask: is watching the World Series really the best use of your time this evening?" one Twitter user responded to Trump. It might not take much to tilt this game, one way or another.

Kershaw retired 14 of the next 15 men he faced before blinking again in the sixth, as the finest regular-season pitcher of his generation handed the Red Sox an unnecessary cushion. Only the St. Louis Cardinals (11) and the New York Yankees (27) have more.

The Red Sox will give the ball to Chris Sale on Sunday as they look to close out the World Series. That seemed to signal a momentum switch that carried over into the next night, when the Dodgers surged to a 4-0 cushion on Yasiel Puig's electrifying home run.

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.
