Boston closes streets, restricts parking for World Series

Boston closes streets, restricts parking for World Series

"Seeing all these grown men over there, just acting like kids, that's what it's all about", Price said after pitching three-hit ball into the eighth inning on short rest. "And when I came in it, was having fun and laughing, everyone was together and talking baseball". The Red Sox lead the series 3-1, and can become World Series champions with another win.

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. "Best feeling in my life". Palka also tied Jason Kipnis, Justin Smoak and Giancarlo Stanton for the Major League lead with six 9th inning home runs for the season.

Although this was the first World Series win for the Red Sox since 2013, it was their fourth of the 21st Century. Only the 1998 Yankees (125) and the 2001 Mariners (120) captured more games.

"This is the greatest Red Sox team in history", owner John Henry proclaimed after receiving the Series trophy. A year ago, he celebrated at the park as Houston's bench coach after the Astros beat Los Angeles in Game 7. However, the first two games in Los Angeles were anything but easy. "So I really don't have too much bandwidth to kind of really take in all the criticism", Roberts said.

Boston outscored the Dodgers 28-16 and had only a slightly better batting average at.222 to.180. Whatever's left of the World Series is do-or-die for L.A. Down 3-1 to the Boston Red Sox, there are no losses left.

Opening day at Tropicana Field in late March, none of his late moves worked out as the bullpen blew a big lead in a 6-4 setback.

Boston never trailed in Game 5. "We expect a lot of each other and we knew exactly that this is what we were going to do".

Israel's Netanyahu pays historic surprise visit to Oman
The visit came at the invitation of Sultan Qaboos and followed "lengthy contacts between the two countries", the statement said. Oman closed the trade representative offices in October 2000 after the outbreak of the second Palestinian intifada.

David Price pitched the end of Game 5, and the 33-year-old put on an incredible performance. The third baseman has made a habit of driving in runs during the postseason in his young career and he came through again in Game 4 of the World Series.

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

And then there was Price, who after years of playoff failure was pure money in his last three starts, including the jubilant clincher.

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

But the Red Sox shrugged off that burden, and when they rallied back on homers by Mitch Moreland and Pearce, followed by five more runs in the ninth inning, that's when this World Series was won.

It's crunch time for the Dodgers and their fans.

Joe Kelly struck out three straight pinch hitters and Sale, originally scheduled to start Game 5, fanned three more in the ninth. After Game 4, Sox manager Alex Cora announced what seemed a bit of a gamble in strategy: that Price, and not ace Chris Sale, would start Sunday. Eovaldi had been set to pitch until he entered in the 12th and stayed in. When they sent five players to Baltimore to acquire three and a half months of his services, they were 53-43 (a.552 winning percentage), just a half game up in the NL West.
