Alex Rodriguez Asked Eduardo Nunez Priceless Question After World Series Win

Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrates his 18th-inning walk-off home run to defeat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 in Game 3 of the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium on Oct. 26 2018

Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrates his 18th-inning walk-off home run to defeat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 in Game 3 of the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium on Oct. 26 2018

It was nearly too much to take for Los Angeles fans who watched the Boston Red Sox take the series in five games Sunday by winning 5-1, the same score of the Houston Astros' series-clinching win a year earlier. Devers furnished the go-ahead, pinch-hit single to give the Red Sox their first lead in 26 innings.

"This is why I came to Boston".

Alex Cora became the seventh different manager to lead the Red Sox to a World Championship.

With his multi home-run effort - on the heels of a homer and three-run double the night before - Pearce finished the series with eight RBI, the second most by a Red Sox player in World Series history. "Best feeling in my life". The Dodgers' relievers couldn't get the job done, allowing Boston to score nine runs over the final three innings to win the game. It is the franchise's fourth World Series since 2004 and their ninth overall. Only their rival, the Yankees, had more wins en route to winning it all, winning 125 games in 1998.

Los Angeles lost Game 7 of the World Series a year ago to Houston, also at Dodger Stadium by the same 5-1 score. Los Angeles remains without a championship since 1988. Dave Roberts, the Dodgers' manager, has been maligned for his deployment of his bullpen, but perhaps it appeared as if he struggled to pull the right strings because there were no strings to pull.

Boston outscored the Dodgers 28-16 and had only a slightly better batting average at.222 to.180.

Cody Bellinger is on the bench for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 of the World Series.

Sunday, he won the biggest game of all.

"We are a bunch of grinders, " Pearce said, "and this is exactly where we knew we were going to be". "Kind of soaked it up a little bit and enjoyed it for sure".

David Price pitched the end of Game 5, and the 33-year-old put on an incredible performance. "It can be cumbersome for a lot of people, and I'm not saying it's not for him at times, but it's part of the process and he handles it easily".

"To be able to come through in October for my team, it feels very good", he added.

Kershaw has retired 13 of his last 14 batters since giving up a two-run homer to Steve Pearce in the first inning.

The hefty contingent of Red Sox fans at Dodger Stadium couldn't cheer him enough, with a standing ovation when he came out in the eighth, then chanting his name after the trophy presentation.

The first baseman hit.333 in the Series (4-for-12) with three home runs, 8 RBIs, a.500 OBP and a 1.167 slugging percentage. He is 9-10 with a 4.32 ERA in 30 post-season appearances, a huge drop from his 153-69 record and 2.39 ERA during the regular season.

Kershaw began aggressively, throwing strikes on his first six pitches, and the Red Sox were ready.

Right behind Pearce in MVP candidacy was Game 5 starter David Price who left the Jays in free agency after the 2015 season.

Freese hit an opposite-field drive to right on a 91.7 miles per hour fastball that went 402 feet.
