Boston Red Sox beat Los Angeles Dodgers to win ninth title

Boston Red Sox beat Los Angeles Dodgers to win ninth title

The quest is complete. Chris Sale, acquired from the White Sox via trade in 2016, and Nathan Eovaldi (acquired before the trade deadline this season) were also big, as was closer Craig Kimbrel, who came over from San Diego after the 2015 season.

A team to remember from top to bottom.

In Game 4 of the World Series, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts made the somewhat controversial move of pulling Rich Hill during the seventh, even though the left-hander had shutout the Boston Red Sox over 6 1/3 innings.

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

He has now won his last two post-season starts, after leading Boston past Los Angeles in Game 2.

This was the sixth consecutive year the Dodgers were in the postseason, but it wasn't quite as straightforward to get back to this point.

Red Sox coach Alex Cora became the first manager from Puerto Rico to guide a team to the title and just the fifth rookie manager to win a World Series. "We were unable to get past that hump", Machado said.

"Baseball is a amusing game", Pearce said to Fox Sports. He launched a drive to the bleachers in left center for a two-run homer, his third of the postseason and second in as many nights. To have Steve Pearce homer twice while powering the Red Sox offense to glory just might get you a lunch with a noteworthy producer. "You never know where the game will take you", Pearce told reporters.

All in all, the Red Sox were the better team and deserved the championship in every way.

Of course, they let loose a few choice words about the rival Yankees, too. He had the pulse of the Boston locker room the second he arrived for Spring Training in Fort Myers, and knew exactly which buttons to push to get the most out of the 25 players every day.

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.

Having also lost the 2017 final to Houston, the Dodgers' wait for a first World Series since 1988 continues.

Dodgers fan Glenda Morales looked dejected as she walked out of the stadium with her daughter, but insisted the feeling would pass, and so would the long championship drought.

For Blue Jays fans, this represents a "feel-good story" of sorts, as despite being a member of the Boston Red Sox, Pearce was proud to play in Toronto, and for much of his tenure with the Jays, was a productive, solid contributor, when healthy. He's raised funds for relief efforts, and when working out his contract with Boston, asked the team to help with relief efforts, which they did.

After Aaron Judge played "New York, New York" on his way out of Fenway Park following the Yankees' Game 2 win in the ALDS, Boston celebrated to the classic track, after finishing off New York in four games at Yankee Stadium.

All that stood between the Red Sox and a sweep was an 18-inning loss in Game 3, the longest World Series game ever.

Boston never trailed in Game 5. "He was really good in so many ways", Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski said before Game 5.
