Red Sox cap stellar season, win 4th World Series in 15 years

Pearce homered twice Sunday night - his third blast in two games - as Boston defeated Los Angeles 5-1 to win the World Series four games to one as Pearce took home MVP honors.

Price said winning the World Series was the whole reason he came to Boston. Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez hit solo home runs. During the five games, Pearce hit.333, with three home runs.

Cora is the first Puerto Rican manager to lead his team to and win the World Series. Only the St. Louis Cardinals (11) and the New York Yankees (27) have more.

Nonetheless, Boston and LA rewrote the record books in game three, which was the longest World Series game ever. Entering this year's tournament with a career 5.03 post-season ERA - and zero wins in nine starts - the noise only got louder when the Yankees knocked him around in Game 2 of the ALDS at Fenway Park, scoring three runs in 12/3 innings.

"When you say that it's nearly overwhelming", Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said.

"I've been through a lot the three years I've been there but this is why I came".

Price, who dominated on the mound and helped the Red Sox defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games, took a moment to soak everything in before answering one particular question that struck a chord.

Early voting in Texas begins with lines, strong turnout
In recent years, the authors note some states have changed laws to make it easier to vote, while others have made it more hard . Monday more than 24,000 people had voted in person, compared to 13,436 who voted in person first day in 2014.

For a long time, Price had been known for his playoff shortcomings, having never won a game.

"This is why I came to Boston".

He had a rough go of it - 0 for 8 with an RBI (a groundout) - in his first two Major League Baseball games before breaking out in game one of an April 28 doubleheader at Kansas City.

Despite all the good David Price had done in his stellar career that started with the Rays, the rap was that he couldn't win the big one.

"It wasn't as easy as what people think", Cora said. The 35-year-old Pearce joined the Red Sox in June. "We were unable to get past that hump", Machado said. He countered accusations that he doesn't always play hard by telling Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, "I'm not the type of player that's going to be "Johnny Hustle.'" In Game 3 of the World Series, he confirmed that self-assessment by standing and admiring a ball he was certain he'd hit for a home run, winding up only on first base after it struck the wall". They went 22-9-1 in spring training. They will have to decide what to do with Clayton Kershaw-the ace whose diminished fastball velocity now almost matches that of his slider-particularly if Kershaw opts out of the two years and $65 million remaining on his contract.

Alex Cora should take Rafael Devers out for all the ice cream he can eat. 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.

He got to the plate one time in Boston's sweep of the 2007 World Series, putting down a sacrifice bunt for a team led by David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Manny Ramirez.
