Late, late show: Dodgers beat Red Sox in longest Series game

Late, late show: Dodgers beat Red Sox in longest Series game

"You get on the road and things can be a little quirky", Buehler said. A grinning Muncy tossed his helmet aside as he headed for third in the final scene of a pivotal game that lasted 7 hours, 20 minutes.

Friday was also the longest Series game by innings, four more than the previous high done three times. Baseball is wonderful and awful.

The Red Sox took the lead in the top of the 13th when Brock Holt scored on anerror by Dodgers pitcher Scott Alexander.

And he kept coming back out, inning after inning, to the amazement of even his teammates, until Muncy opened the 18th by launching Eovaldi's 97th pitch just beyond the left-centerfield wall.

Muncy connected off Nathan Eovaldi, who was in his seventh inning of relief. Dodgers pitching was strong all evening, night and morning, and the first four spots in the Boston batting order combined to go 0-for-28 with two walks and 12 strikeouts.

After catching criticism for his lack of effort on the basepaths in the NLCS, Dodgers infielder and pending free agent Manny Machado said he was "not the type of player that's going to be "Johnny Hustle" because it's "not (his) cup of tea". "I felt good the whole time", he said after the iconic game on October 26. The victory gave the Dodgers their first win in the best-of-seven series after the Red Sox won Games 1 and 2 in Boston. Then again when sliding into first to beat out an infield hit that allowed the go-ahead run to score from third in the 13th inning. There had been speculation Betts could play second base - he made 14 starts there as a rookie in 2014, and played six innings at the spot in August after Ian Kinsler was hurt. Put it this way: The game took 15 minutes more than the entire 1939 World Series when the Yankees swept Cincinnati, STATS said.

No U.S. major team sport DOUBLED the length of a game in its championship.

The Dodgers munched on peanut butter and banana sandwiches provided by a team employee, and hung the bananas to produce fruitful luck - harkening back to the rally banana credited by Enrique Hernandez for helping end a 35-inning scoreless streak three years ago. "I want to see it still on at 5 a.m. and watch the teams openly crying having to take the field".

Red Sox: Cora hadn't decided on a Game 4 starter.

"I just wanted to have another good at-bat", said Muncy, who had a pair of hits and scored twice. Nunez hit a slow roller between the mound and first base that Alexander fielded, but his throw to first was wide and trickled past the bag and down the line.
