Boston Red Sox Win the 2018 World Series

After allowing Pearce's home run, Kershaw returned to the mound and recorded 15 outs without allowing a run until Mookie Betts hit a sixth-inning pitch deep into the bleachers.

Clayton Kershaw, who may have played his final game in a Dodgers uniform, took the loss. Kershaw threw 41 pitches in the first three innings and Boston starter David Price threw 47.

By then, fans had started planning for the April 9 home opener against Toronto, when the championship flag will be raised over Fenway after Boston opens with an 11-game trip out West. Boston traded an unheralded minor league infielder for Steve Pearce in late June; Pearce was named World Series MVP after a performance than included three home runs and nine RBIs-seven of those RBIs coming in the final two games.

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

This is the ninth championship for Boston, tying the Red Sox with the Athletics for third most all time.

That was the Red Sox's privilege this year, and Price said doing so brought back memories from the 2008 Rays, when as a rookie he closed out the pennant-clinching game, over the Red Sox, to reach the World Series for the first time. 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. What would they sacrifice to see the Dodgers win this World Series? However, the first two games in Los Angeles were anything but easy.

The Red Sox, after winning a franchise record and Major League Baseball best 108 games during the regular season, carried their domination all the way to the World Series and overwhelmed the Dodgers.

Donald Trump is now a World Series baseball analyst - blaming Dodgers manger Dave Roberts for making a stupid decision that probably cost L.A. the game.

"Same as for any other game, I went home and played Fortnite", he said.

Los Angeles lost Game 7 of the World Series past year to Houston, also at Dodger Stadium by the same 5-1 score. In 2007, they swept the Colorado Rockies.

The Red Sox did more than just talk it.

For a guy who was snakebitten in the fall, Price finished on an incredible three-win run - the ALCS clincher vs. Houston, Game 2 of the Fall Classic back in Boston and now this.
