Dodgers collapse, Boston on brink of title after 9-6 win

Mookie Betts

In a town that loves to go large, the Los Angeles Dodgers' 3-2 at home victory over the Boston Red Sox also beat the previous World Series record of most innings in a single game.

Although the Dodgers are down 2-0 in the series with the Boston Red Sox, Charles Thomas, a manager at a Burbank Boston Market, says locals are still pulling for the boys in blue.

The floodgates opened for Boston in the top of the ninth with the biggest hit coming from first baseman Pearce, who hit a bases-loaded double to drive in Devers, Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi in the five-run ninth. A much-needed win, especially after what happened (in Game 3). Madson got Bradley to pop out, but then his first-pitch changeup to pinch hitter Mitch Moreland disappeared into the right-field bleachers for a stunning, three-run homer.

Price is coming off a strong start in Game 2 against the Dodgers and before that an even stronger start against the Astros in Game 5 of the ALCS. "I think that kind of lit a fire under everybody". That was just the third hit and first earned run he allowed (he gave up an unearned run in the 13th). "It's the World Series". This year's Game 3 was the lowest viewed since an average of 13,722,000 tuned in for the New York Mets' 9-3 win over Kansas City in 2015. Instead, he took a moment to criticize Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts for his pitching decisions during the late innings. "I'm three cups of coffee deep", Roberts said.




Because Buehler was able to get through seven innings, the Dodgers bullpen is not quite as taxed going into Game 4 as the Red Sox, who only got 4.2 innings out of their starter Rick Porcello. Most of LA's bullpen can throw again on Saturday night, since none of the eight relievers threw more than two innings or Kenta Maeda's 36 pitches.

The Dodgers were short on offense but did get some defensive heroics in the 10th inning when center fielder Cody Bellinger cut down the go-ahead run at home plate. He was charged with five runs and seven hits over four-plus innings in a Game 1 loss at Boston.

After Pearce broke the game wide open in the ninth inning, the Sox padded the lead with a Xander Bogaerts RBI-single.

After throwing six pitches in relief the night before, left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez largely stymied the Dodgers until giving up Puig's homer in the sixth. The Dodgers have yet to confirm their starter.
