Boston Red Sox stars celebrate ninth World Series title

Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History

Since ending an 86-year World Series title drought in 2004, Boston has now won four of the past 15 championships.

Steve Pearce was named the Series' Most Valuable Player after hitting two home runs in the decisive victory. On Aug. 10, he struck out three times and then hit a walkoff home run to win the game 1-0, the first time the White Sox ever won 1-0 on a walkoff home run.

Boston's ninth World Series title sees the team tie with the Oakland Athletics for the third-most wins in Major League Baseball history. Only the St. Louis Cardinals (11) and the New York Yankees (27) have more.

Betts, the likely American League MVP, was just 4-for-19 in the World Series heading into Game 5, but his sixth-inning home run off Kershaw gave Boston a 3-1 lead.

Boston came from behind to beat the Dodgers 9-6 in Game 4, taking a 3-1 series lead.

"When you say that it's nearly overwhelming", Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said. I've got three days now to think about all that stuff before anything happens. Cool and collected, Pearce was a force to be reckoned with at the plate all postseason long, culminating in a terrific performance in the clinching game.

It was also quite the turnaround on the season for Pearce, who played in just 26 games with the Blue Jays before being traded, and then ultimately ended up hitting in the middle of the lineup for the World Series champs, while contributing even more on offence than Mookie Betts or J.D.

Price got the word from Cora coming off the field after Saturday's Game 4 win, and immediately shifted into his pre-start mentality.

He has now won his last two post-season starts, after leading Boston past Los Angeles in Game 2.

Trump would prefer to use his personal iPhone because he can not store his contacts in iPhones approved by the NSA. Trump's aides have repeatedly warned him that his cellphone calls are not secure, The New York Times said.

Pearce added the coup de grace in the eighth, touching up Pedro Baez with one final swing.

Pearce finished the World Series hitting 4-for-12 with eight RBIs, three home runs and four walks.

Despite all the good David Price had done in his stellar career that started with the Rays, the rap was that he couldn't win the big one. The 35-year-old Pearce joined the Red Sox in June.

"Chris is okay", Cora said.

"I don't know where we stand in history and all that", said Dave Dombrowski, the club's president of baseball operations. Hill walked Xander Bogaerts and struck out Eduardo Nunez for the first out of the frame before Roberts lifted his left-handed starter after 91 pitches. A ninth championship is always potentially just a few short months away once spring training convenes in Fort Myers every February.

Manager Alex Cora made a last-second switch to David Price, who threw seven-plus innings of one-run ball.

"I can't say enough about what Clayton - what our guys did", manager Dave Roberts said.

Joe Kelly turned into Cora's most trusted reliever in the World Series. He transformed into one of the driving forces behind the latest Red Sox championship, dominating one last time on Sunday night in Chavez Ravine.
