Dodgers Beat Red Sox, Eventually, in Longest-Ever World Series Game

28 October, 2018, 00:46 | Author: Courtney Perry
  • The World Series between the Dodgers and Red Sox isn’t impressing in the ratings. More

Not many had left by then.

Ian Kinsler hustled back to the bag, beating the tag by third baseman Justin Turner. "Unbelievable fight from our club". Then again when sliding into first to beat out an infield hit that allowed the go-ahead run to score from third in the 13th inning.

The Dodgers snacked on peanut butter and banana sandwiches whipped up by a team employee, and hung a bag of bananas over the dugout railing to change their luck. Like I said, counting outs, looking at the pen, we're in good shape. Bradley's homer set in motion the events that led this game all the way into Saturday.

Red Sox righthander Nathan Eovaldi, originally projected as Boston's Game 4 starter, ended up throwing 97 pitches in relief, and turned in inning after inning of solid work to keep the Red Sox going. "There's a lot of guys a little banged up, but they grind it out", he said.

If the Dodgers win: The series is tied 2-2, L.A. has all the momentum plus another home game, and the Red Sox will be feeling the heat.

Brock Holt drew a leadoff walk and stole second.

This was a true fall classic for Eduardo Nunez.

But not only did the third baseman stay in the game, but he punctuated his toughness in the next half inning when diving into the stands to make a catch on a Cody Bellinger pop-up for the second out of the 13th. He was 2-for-5 with two walks, a single and homer last night. Kinsler appeared on shaky footing when he scooped it up and fired toward first, and the ball sailed well wide of its target.


With the Red Sox least effective starter on the hill, L.A. managed just a solo home run from Joc Pederson on a flat changeup.

Both teams squandered numerous chances. He had to take a loss, despite many Red Sox players speaking of him as a hero postgame.

Kinsler, of course, would love to have the play back.

The game began in 78-degree heat - 31 degrees warmer than at Fenway Park for the first two games. The Sox staff kept close watch Friday, asking him each inning how he felt. The right-hander retired his final 14 batters before leaving after 108 pitches. But he's got tremendous stuff. He got the start against Rick Porcello, creating a more powerful Dodgers lineup, and it paid off.

Alex Wood (1-0) pitched a scoreless 18th inning to earn the victory for theDodgers.

Bradley won ALCS MVP honors despite having only three total hits in the five-game series because all three drove home runs in big spots.

Game 4 is Saturday night.
