World goes insane over ‘milk guy’ at game five

Longest ever World Series Game

It only took half as long for the Boston Red Sox to win Game 4 of the World Series as it did for the Los Angeles Dodgers to win Game 3.

That was quick! Steve Pearce tags Clayton Kershaw for a home run and it's already 2-0 Boston.

"He needs to come back home and teach these guys how to play Dodger baseball", White said.

In just 66 regular season games as a Dodger, Machado hit.273 with 13 home runs, 42 RBIs, and six steals. David Freese hit a leadoff home run in the first inning for the Dodgers, who finished with just three hits Sunday.

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.

Pearce became the first player in 34 years to hit at least two home runs in a title clincher, earning series Most Valuable Player honors.

Price walked Chris Taylor to begin the eighth before getting pulled in favour of Joe Kelly.

"I said it on the stage, it's the best Red Sox team ever", owner John Henry said after the trophy celebration.

The St Louis Cardinals have won 11, while the New York Yankees remain way ahead with 27 wins. The first baseman also forever punctuated his name in Red Sox lore by winning the World Series MVP Award. He led the Red Sox to their best season in the franchise's 118-year history - and it's near the top of the sport all-time. The Dodgers have not won the World Series since 1988.

Boston never looked back from that damaging first inning: the Dodgers' bats that went cold for deep stretches of the series were ineffective once again on a balmy Los Angeles evening.

Those who actually stayed up for all 18 innings of Game 3 of the World Series may be among you right now.

"He's in a good place, not only mentally but physically", Alex Cora said before Game 5.

Price entered the American League Championship Series against the Astros as the only man among 70 not to record a victory in any of his first 10 career postseason starts.

"Trump felt the need to weigh in on the World Series on a day when the president should have had much more pressing issues to attend to", the paper's sports staff wrote in an editorial.

"Just because I failed in October for about nine straight years, it didn't take away my passion from baseball", Price said before the first of his two World Series starts.
