Puig hits mammoth three-run HR in WS Game 4

Share

That's Nathan, as in Nathan Eovaldi.

The Red Sox now lead 2-1 in the best-of-seven series, with Game 4 set for Saturday.

With only Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz left in the bullpen, Eovaldi threw six innings and 97 pitches.

The game went 18 innings, the only World Series game ever to do so, clobbering the previous record of 14 innings shared by three different games.

It certainly wasn't lost on his teammates. It was the second straight game Jansen blew a one-run lead in the eighth by giving up a homer. "For us to come up short right there it's frustrating to me". Same thing with (David Price), same thing with (Eduardo Nunez).

"I feel awful for Nate", Kinsler said. "Had our backs against the wall many times, and for us to persevere, and it wasn't how we scripted it, but it was a big win for us". I'm not here to change them.

It was something that caused even the opposing dugout to tip its cap.

The Dodgers munched on peanut butter and banana sandwiches provided by a team employee, and hung the bananas to produce fruitful luck - harkening back to the rally banana credited by Enrique Hernandez for helping end a 35-inning scoreless streak three years ago. "It was really, really impressive".

One key stat to know: The Dodgers are the fifth team to win via walk-off when trailing 2-0 in the World Series. His stuff speaks for itself, obviously, but what he's able to do. The least? Dodgers reliever Ryan Madson, just two. Obviously has an incredible arm.

Roberts said after the game that he had made a decision to pull Hill after a conversation with the pitcher. He had to take a loss, despite many Red Sox players speaking of him as a hero postgame.

The left-hander was originally announced as the starter, but on Saturday morning the team backed off on him and said its starter was to be announced.

"It is incredible how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through nearly 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever (s) who get shellacked".

Whatever the case, Eovaldi's performance in Game 3 will be remembered for a long time. This year's Game 3 was the lowest viewed since an average of 13,722,000 tuned in for the New York Mets' 9-3 win over Kansas City in 2015. I'm guessing a lot of baseball fans didn't quite make it to the 18th inning. One of the most popular jokes involved how much people had aged between the first pitch and the last. But in recent times it just doesn't happen.
