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

Gammons After a long road Nathan Eovaldi has arrived at his dream destination

The Red Sox were originally going to start ex-Yankee Nathan Eovaldi in Game 4 but after he worked six innings in Game 3 that took the right-hander out of the mix.

The longest game in World Series history turned out to be a rough night for a former Texas Ranger.

Red Sox second baseman Ian Kinsler was apologetic about a critical error he made in the bottom of the 13th Friday night, which allowed the tying run to score and led to a devastating loss to the Dodgers in Game 3 of the World Series. Dodger Max Muncy finally put the game to bed with a walk-off homer in the 18th. In four-plus innings Kershaw gave up five runs and seven hits to the Red Sox.

Ernie Banks would have been happy - the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox filled his oft-said desire: Let's play two!

Eovaldi earned recognition and praise from all sides, as several Dodgers noted his special performance.

The Red Sox are tweaking their lineup against left-hander Hill.

Hill is well-rested, unlike most of the Dodgers' staff. Los Angeles used nine pitchers to eke out a 3-2 victory in Game 3, which lasted a record 7 hours, 20 minutes. They'll be bragging about staying up to watch the entire game.

"All I know is we're feeling pretty good about ourselves right now", Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. But just keep in mind to call their Game 4 victory this: The kind of comeback from which champions are forged.

All told, his 53.5 combined points, rebounds and assists per game were his most against any Western Conference team in 2016-17. According to Lance Stephenson , Luke Walton unloaded on his player personnel during a team meeting, hours before shootaround.

The Dodgers, chasing their first World Series title in 30 years, lost last year's Fall Classic to the Houston Astros - but will aim to level this year's series at 2-2 when they host game four on Saturday.

Hoping the momentum holds for the hometown boys, Game 4 starts tonight in LA just after 5 PM PT. East Coast time. The Dodgers won 3-2, and now trail the Series 2 games to 1.

"I was just doing anything you can think to try and bring a little luck. We've got our best going tomorrow and we're expecting to win a baseball game".

The Dodgers were unable to mount a big enough rally against Boston closer Craig Kimbrel, leaving L.A. with their backs against the wall - a spot they've managed to find themselves in time and again all season despite winning a second straight National League pennant.

Pearce then repeated the Game 3 feat of Jackie Bradley Jr., who also hit a tying homer in the eighth off Jansen.

But they gave themselves a attractive chance to do that Sunday, after rallying from a 4-0 hole in the eighth inning to stagger the National League Champion Dodgers, 9-6. It was a throwback to the days when Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale took the Dodger Stadium mound and expected to finish what they started. Xander Bogaerts, who had a clutch knock in the ninth inning, is batting.105 (2-for-19).

He is just the third relief pitcher in World Series history to throw six innings.
