Fall classic: Wild trip for Boston infielder Nunez in Game 3

Fall classic: Wild trip for Boston infielder Nunez in Game 3

Perhaps too much of a grind for all but the most hardcore of Red Sox and Dodgers supporters, that result is down 5% in the early numbers from October 24's Game 2 to hit a low for the series so far. What should have been a routine play for relief pitcher Scott Alexander became the disaster of the Dodgers' season-he flipped the ball toward an unprepared Kiké Henandez, which would dribble down the rightfield line to score Holt from first and what should have become the clinching run of Boston's third consecutive win of the World Series.

"I didn't know who they were at first".

Dedicated supporters shouted "Let's go Dodgers!" and "Dodgers are coming back!" as they made their way home ahead of Game 4 that was only about 16 hours away. It comes as no surprise that Friday night/Saturday morning's game produced all kinds of interesting facts and figures in addition to it being the longest World Series game in history.

The 2018 World Series continues on Saturday night, with the Los Angeles Dodgers hosting the Boston Red Sox for the second consecutive night in the best-of-seven series. He proved it again in sixth on Friday, when he roped a long drive to left field. Max Muncy hit a ground-rule double with two outs in the tenth inning, only for Machado to pop up and strand him in scoring position. Yasiel Puig set the play in motion with a hard grounder up the middle.

"I was just laughing because everything was happening at the wrong time", he said. But because he's been hobbling around on a sore ankle that he hurt while slipping on second base in Game 1, the Sox wanted their two outfielders with the most range to play alongside him.

The longest prior World Series game was five hours and 41 minutes - the Chicago White Sox's 14-inning win over the Houston Astros in game three in 2005.

As it turned out, Game 3 wasn't even half over.

Red Sox legend Pedro Martinez was among those who took notice of Eovaldi's performance. Kinsler tried to score from third base on a fly ball to center bypinch hitter Eduardo Nunez, but Bellinger's throw was in time for the out.

"Considering where we're at, down 2-1, home crowd behind us, I think there's a little bit of momentum on our side".
