Boston closes streets, restricts parking for World Series

Longest ever World Series Game

Longest ever World Series Game

Former Dodgers star Orel Hershiser threw out the first ball, then told the crowd that while this is the last game of the season in Los Angeles, there are three more games left in the Series. Indeed, the Dodgers seemed to be affected by one of the most debilitating defeats in franchise history the night before, when the Red Sox surmounted a four-run deficit with eight runs in the final three innings of Game 4.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora revealed that he had shuffled the pitching rotation following Saturday's come-from-behind 9-6 win over the Dodgers.

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

"We knew we had a special team from the start and we knew what we were made of", Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi said.

Kershaw allowed four runs and seven hits - three of them homers - in seven innings.

"I've been through a lot in three years since I came here, but this is why I came", said Price, who like Kershaw can opt out of his contract in the coming days and become a free agent. The only other hits off him were Yasiel Puig's second-inning bloop single and Freese's third-inning triple, lost in the lights by right fielder J.D. Martinez, who is normally Boston's DH and let it fall in behind him.

Boston never trailed in Game 5. So the ups and the downs, I knew they were going to happen. It might not take much to tilt this game, one way or another.

Announcing that doors were open for talks, Singh said, "We are not opposed to talks but talks are not a one-sided affair". In return for providing support, Saudi Arabia might extract favors from Pakistan in countering Iran.

"I wouldn't say 'nervous, ' " Floro said.

Joe Kelly turned into Cora's most trusted reliever in the World Series. I have no idea, " Boston's president of baseball operations said on the infield.

Boston held their 2-1 lead into the sixth inning. "I never had a manager that was like rah, rah, screaming at guys". "I mean, they could go a totally different way..."

This World Series loss was a tough one for the Dodgers, who were hoping to end a 30-year championship drought this year - their last one was in 1988.

It got better and better, too, as hundreds of Red Sox fans in the stands chanted "MVP!"

Sale came out of the 'pen firing gas and struck out all three batters he faced, finishing the game by fanning Manny Machado. "And then the bench, it was awesome, they had the best utility guy in the bigs in 2007", Cora said with a playful grin Sunday.

The Red Sox were oh-so-close in the 13th to taking a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Series.
