Red Sox announce David Price shocker with title in sight

Red Sox announce David Price shocker with title in sight

He entered the game to start the bottom of the 12th, and he carried the Red Sox all the way to the 18th inning.

One of the craziest games in World Series history would not have been as insane if not for the most inexplicable moment of a never-ending night. The Dodgers' 3-2 win over Boston on Friday cut Los Angeles' World Series deficit to 2-1. 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.

Dressed in a Red Sox jersey, Nelsons starts the video: "We challenge Gustavo and the LA Philharmonic to top our theme song". Nunez got knocked on his back again in the play at first, but stayed in the game since the Boston had no one left on its bench. "That was the most incredible pitching performance I've even seen". But just keep in mind to call their Game 4 victory this: The kind of comeback from which champions are forged. The Dodgers, someone who saw the end of the game may not remember, took the lead in the third on a mistake pitch from Rick Porcello that Joc Pederson crushed to the bleachers at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers' bullpen flopped after manager Dave Roberts pulled starter Rich Hill, who dazzled for 6 1/3 innings of one-hit ball. Put it this way: The game took 15 minutes more than the entire 1939 World Series when the Yankees swept Cincinnati, STATS said.

The Red Sox lead the series 2-1 with Game 4 scheduled for 8:09 p.m. ET Saturday. But veteran second baseman Ian Kinsler's wide throw on a two-out grounder by Yasiel Puig let Los Angeles score the tying run. Muncy said. "Those last nine innings or so just kind of blended together". One more Dodgers base runner didn't materialize into a run, with the potential tying run left in the on-deck circle.

Jansen struggled against Houston a year ago in the World Series, too. It was the sixth inning and there were two on in a scoreless game. "We've got our best going tomorrow and we're expecting to win a baseball game".

Clayton Kershaw, a three-time NL Cy Young Award victor with a.163 career batting average, pinch hit in the 17th inning and lined out.

Pearce even scored Boston's ninth run on Xander Bogaerts' single, celebrating wildly with his teammates in quiet Chavez Ravine.

After throwing only six pitches of relief in Game 3, Eduardo Rodriguez largely stymied the Dodgers over the first five innings.

Rodriguez threw 93 pitches and became the first pitcher to start a World Series game on zero days' rest since Firpo Marberry for the Washington Senators in 1924.
