Red Sox vs. Dodgers score: Max Muncy ends longest game in World Series history with Game 3 home run

The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Boston Red Sox 3-2 in Game 3 of the 2018 World Series on Friday…

The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Boston Red Sox 3-2 in Game 3 of the 2018 World Series on Friday night. It was an 18-inning affair that doubled as the longest game in World Series history . As a result, the Red Sox now leads the best-of-seven series by a 2-1 margin. The two sides will play again in Los Angeles on Saturday.

But before we learn whether or not the series will last that long, let’s focus on what happened Friday – and, well, into Saturday. Here are 11 things you need to know about Game 3.

  1. Muncy walks it off

It took until the 1

8th, but Max Muncy ended the game with a walk-off homer against Nathan Eovaldi, who was nearing 100 pitches in relief. In the process, he made some history:

Earlier in the game, in the 15th, Muncy had almost ended the game on a long flyball that went foul.

With one swing, Muncy seemed to breathe new life into the Dodgers’ championship hopes. We’ll see if they are left.

2. Nunez central in unusual 13th

Eduardo Nunez has been criticized throughout the postseason for a lack of production and poor defense. He’s making up for it in this series, including with a crucial game 1 home run.

In Game 3, Nunez came to the record in the top of the 13th and was upended during the at-bat when Austin Barnes attempted to retrieve a ball. Brock Holt was able to advance to second. Det så ut som Nunez var skadet og kan ha to exit – som ville ha vært et problem, med tanke på at Red Sox hadde uttømt sin posisjonsspillerforsyning.

Soon thereafter, Nunez hit a grounder to the pitcher and raced to first in an attempt to reach an infield single. He was safe no matter what, as the ball got away, but remained down once more. Again Nunez stayed in. Perhaps the fact that Holt had scored the go-ahead run helped ease whatever pain he was in at the time.

No one expected Nunez to play a big role in this series. Yet he continued to do that in the bottom half of the frame. Nunez made a running grab on a popup from his shifted position, causing him to go into the stands. That allowed Max Muncy to advance to second, and he would soon score on an error by Ian Kinsler that would have ended the game had it been out.

Rather, the game roared on, ensuring that Nunez’s heroics would soon be overshadowed.

3rd Red Sox bullpen keeps them in it

Speaking of unlikely heroes, the Red Sox bullpen started its long night in the fifth, when Rick Porcello departed after 4 2/3 innings. Porcello had allowed a run at that point, but the Dodgers would not add to their total in the frame.

Rather, Eduardo Rodriguez escaped the fifth. Then Joe Kelly, Ryan Brasier, Matt Barnes, David Price, Craig Kimbrel, Heath Hembree, and Nathan Eovaldi – who was originally scheduled to start Game 4 on Saturday – combined to keep the Dodgers off the board over the ensuing nine-plus frames. Obviously Eovaldi gave up a run (unearned) in the 13th and then another (earned) in the 18th, but the Red Sox bullpen essentially threw a hidden shutout.

Despite the final result, Eovaldi in particular deserves kudos for essentially throwing his start a night ahead of time.

4th Bellinger redeems himself in eventful 10th

Cody Bellinger was picked off despite representing the winning run in the bottom of the ninth. He made up for it in the 10th inning.

First, two set up the scene: the Red Sox had runners on the corners with one out. Ef bara það var það straightforward. Ian Kinsler, who was on third, had almost been picked off at first base, and later was almost tagged out after over-sliding third :

Kinsler attempted to score on a Nunez fly to center, yet Bellinger made a strong throw on the catch. Austin Barnes was able to catch the ball up the third-base line and apply the tag, sending the game into the bottom of the 10th tie at 1-1. Take a look:

Beaut.

5. Buehler was fantastic

It can be argued that Walker Buehler was the Dodgers’ most reliable starter in the regular season. He started eight more games than Hyun-Jin Ryu did, and posted a better ERA and FIP than all else in Los Angeles’s rotation. Wherever he ranked, he looked like No. 1 on Friday.

Buehler threw seven innings, permitting two hits and no runs. He struck out seven batters. Beide de hits hij toegelaten kwam in de derde inning, en elke was een bases-leeg single. Buehler generated 12 swinging strikes on 108 pitches – 10 of those came on fastball varieties. By the way, he averaged 98 mph on his heater and maxed out at 100 mph.

] Buehler overcame an elongated first inning to throw six more efficient frames. He recorded just the sixth start of at least seven innings for the Dodgers over the past two postseasons. He also made a little bit of history:

Keep in mind, this was Buehler’s first career World Series start. His team was in a 2-0 hole. He was facing a lineup that tends to score runs and does not tend to strike out. Add it all together and this was one of the best pitching performances we’ve seen all month.

6. Jansen stretches, blows save

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen had not appeared in the World Series before Friday. Det var en sikker innsats, da, at han ville komme ind i spillet på et tidspunkt, forudsat at det var tæt. Boy, did he? Dave Roberts tasked Jansen with working the eighth and ninth for his seventh two-plus-in appearance in the last three postseasons.

Alas, Jansen did not close the door. Instead, he allowed a game-tie home run to Jackie Bradley Jr. in the eighth. He did recover to keep the game tied through the rest of the eighth and the ninth. Men hans appearance does raise questions about whether he will be available – or maybe for how long – in each of the following games in Los Angeles.

7. Bradley Jr. comes up big once more

Give Bradley Jr. credit: Dude makes the most of his hits.

Entering the night, Bradley Jr. had six hits this postseason. Two home runs, another two were doubles. He added two more hits on Friday, with one being a game-tie homer against Jansen :

Bradley Jr. won the ALCS MVP award by virtue of coming up with a couple of big hits. He’s unlikely to win the World Series MVP, but he played an important role in Game 3 all the same.

8. Pederson Homers Again

A Joc Pederson home run in the third inning represented the only score for most of the game. For Pederson, it was his fourth home run in six World Series starts. That’s efficient, and notable :

Pederson entered the night a career .247 / .340 / .473 postseason hitter in 40 games.

ninth Machado gets in trouble over hustle

Manny Machado raised eyebrows during the NLCS when he revealed that he knows he’s not a big-time hustler – and that he’s unsure if he can change that. Everyone is likely to be reminded of those comments after what he did on Friday, watching a ball he perceived to be a home run – then regretting it after the ball banged off the wall and he was held to a single:

The next batter, Cody Bellinger, made an out to end the inning. In a sense, het waarschijnlijk niet deed hoe dan ook. But reasonable people can agree there is a difference between running out a routine grounder and making an effort to put out a potential extra-base hit in the World Series .

10. History says ….

You might wonder what the empirical data says about a best-of-seven series entering a 2-1 state like the one in front of us. According to the Baseball Gauge, the host team – the Red Sox, in this case – goes on to win 73.2 percent of the time.

eleventh Next up

The Red Sox and Dodgers will play Game 4 on Saturday night. Nathan Eovaldi was scheduled to take on Rich Hill. Eovaldi pitched in Game 3, however, meaning Drew Pomeranz or Chris Sale is likely to get the start instead. Regardless, the game will start at 8:09 pm. ET.
