Red Sox continue to mock Yankees after World Series win

Longest ever World Series Game

But Sunday night marked the biggest milestone for the first-year manager: winning the World Series. The Boston Red Sox, Major League Baseball's best team from start to finish in 2018, are World Series champions.

Pearce's bat put a charge in the Red Sox for the second consecutive game when he hit a two-run home run to center field in the first inning off Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw.

Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez added solo home runs in the sixth and seventh, respectively. During the five games, Pearce hit.333, with three home runs.

Boston's Alex Cora, in his first year as a manager, is the first Puerto Rican manager to take a team to - and now win - the World Series. Only the St. Louis Cardinals (11) and the New York Yankees (27) have more.

Nathan Eovaldi, traded to the Red Sox in July, worked in relief in three games, including his six-inning outing in Friday's 18-inning Game 3 marathon won by the Dodgers, posting a 1.16 ERA.

Dodgers fans stood and shouted for a rally one last time in the eighth inning when down 5-1, but many headed to the exits once it ended.

"I didn't say anything that anyone didn't know", Sale explained.

"For me, it's noise, and I really haven't paid much attention to it", Roberts said earlier Sunday of the criticism he has faced in recent days. "Before the World Series started we had media day". The Red Sox won it in the ninth and we can all get to sleep at a reasonable hour tonight. It seems to me there's a Christmas shopping season coming up.

For a long time, Price had been known for his playoff shortcomings, having never won a game.

Progress came incrementally for Price, who went 42/3 innings -one out shy of qualifying for a win - in Game 2 of the ALCS against the Astros.

"It wasn't as easy as what people think", Cora said.

Pearce is headed to free agency, but after the thump he provided against left-handed pitching this year, the Red Sox should be hot on his trail. He countered accusations that he doesn't always play hard by telling Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, "I'm not the type of player that's going to be "Johnny Hustle.'" In Game 3 of the World Series, he confirmed that self-assessment by standing and admiring a ball he was certain he'd hit for a home run, winding up only on first base after it struck the wall".

"This was a tough one for us tonight, it really was", Kershaw, who now will need to decide if he will exercise the opt-out clause in his contract, said. You could pick a moment or two here and there, or a starting lineup decision, that might have cost the Dodgers a victory (see Dave Roberts' decision to replace a dominant Rich Hill in Game 4). They thrived in their role, and Cora not only looks like a genius, but a genius who will soon have another World Series ring. While stars like Betts, Martinez and ace Chris Sale dominated headlines throughout the regular season, the Red Sox got some critical contributions throughout the roster during the postseason.
