No decision on Martinez in Red Sox lineup; Betts not at 2B

LOS ANGELES CA- OCTOBER 27 Eduardo Nunez #36 of the Boston Red Sox goes down goes down after being struck by Austin Barnes #15 of the Los Angeles Dodgers during the 13th inning of Game 3 of the World Series against the LA Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on O

Exhausted yet exhilarated, the Dodgers headed home for a catnap. But the ball bounced in front of Nunez, who collided with Barnes while trying to get out of the way, flipped over the catcher, and remained on the ground as the Red Sox' training staff came out to check on him. "I want to stay in.'" He became Boston's record-tying ninth pitcher at the start of the 12th inning in the game.

The performance wowed anyone who sat through the 7-hour, 20-minute marathon, which was the longest game in Major League Baseball postseason history. But, partly because the Red Sox had no other options.

They were oh-so-close in the 13th to taking a commanding Series lead.

"I had the last out in my glove", Kinsler said. "It's tough to swallow", Kinsler said.

"I actually, after the game was over I started crying because that was - I mean, he's grinding".

"All I know is we're feeling pretty good about ourselves right now, to have two more games at home, but right now our focus is (Saturday)", he said. "I felt good the whole time", he said after the iconic game on October 26.

"I was just laughing because everything was happening at the wrong time", Nunez said. Couple that with a sense of new life for L.A. after narrowly avoiding falling in a 3-0 hole and this Series could very well be all tied up after the final out Saturday.

Bellinger saved the Dodgers in the top of the 10th, catching a flyball at medium depth and throwing out pinch-runner Ian Kinsler at the plate for an inning-ending double play.

The battle of attrition had a bit of everything: 46 players, including 18 pitchers, and 561 pitches.

Florida's capital, Tallahassee opened two locations Sunday where residents could get sandbags to get ready for possible flooding. Satellite wind data indicated the depression had strengthened Sunday morning with maximum winds of 40 miles per hour .

Two games in one, really.

"It was a must-win for us. It's not just one guy".

How long did they play?

The game took more than seven hours to complete.

After two losses in chilly Boston battling Fenway Park's quirky features, the Dodgers were back home in warmer, friendlier surroundings trimming the Red Sox lead in the best-of-seven series to 2-1.

Cody Bellinger made a sensational throw from center field to nail a Red Sox runner at the plate in the 10th. So Roberts turned to his ace Kershaw, who handles the bat well by the standards of starting pitchers.

"I think my beard got about 3 inches longer".

Walker Buehler, a 24-year-old rookie right-hander, will be the center of attention when he starts Game 3 for the Dodgers in Friday's late-afternoon twilight against Rick Porcello.
