  • Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler

Game 5 is Sunday at Dodger Stadium, where the Red Sox can close out a spectacular season with their fourth title in 15 years. Game 3 is Friday night in Los Angeles.

"He was letting us have it, for sure", Mookie Betts said on Fox after the game.

After Friday night's 18-inning game, the Dodgers have shortened batting practice to 30 minutes and made it optional.

Some left the stadium and never went to sleep. "We kept talking to him, 'I'm good". I slept a few hours. Earlier Saturday, Sale had said, "I'm ready to go". With the Dodgers looking to gain the upper hand in the World Series this weekend, it remains to be seen whether he can deliver similar results once again. "If you can't get up for this, we have to find something else to do".

Game 3 was the longest World Series game by both innings and time (7 hours, 20minutes).

Los Angeles' bullpen threw 170 pitches - a pittance compared to the Boston bullpen's 222 pitches, and a possible advantage in Game 4.

The Boston Red Sox responded with a Mitch Moreland pinch-hit three-run blast the very next inning, and Steve Pearce took care of the rest.

The Dodgers got a home run from Joc Pederson in the third inning but were heldscoreless over the next 10 innings by Red Sox starter Rick Porcello, alongwith a string of eight relievers.

The Red Sox had a wild 13th, with a walk, a steal, an infield hit and an error before taking a 2-1 lead.

Second baseman Brock Holt bats seventh, followed by catcher Christian Vasquez and pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez.

L.A. Dodgers' pitcher Walker Buehler certainly deserved to finish the long night as a victor, although he had his feet up hours before the actual finish arrived.

"I'm just trying to do whatever I can to help this team win", Kinsler said in the wee hours of the morning after Boston's eventual 3-2 18-inning loss.

While the Dodgers mobbed Muncy at home plate, the Red Sox will rue one that got away.

The Dodgers tied it 2-all in the bottom of the 13th.

Eovaldi pitched in relief in Games 1 and 2 of the World Series in Boston, throwing two scoreless innings.

Dodgers starter Walker Buehler, 108 pitches; Eovaldi 97. The Dodgers have yet to confirm their starter. "I want to stay in.'" He became Boston's record-tying ninth pitcher at the start of the 12th inning in the game.
