Los Angeles Dodgers outlast Boston Red Sox in longest World Series game

If that weren't enough, the potential Game 4 starter came out of the bullpen during the marathon Game 3 against the Los Angeles Dodgers and threw 97 pitches over six-plus innings.

The battle of attrition had a bit of everything: 46 players, including 18 pitchers, and 561 pitches. Here are 18 of them.

The Boston Red Sox take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in California during the 2018 World Series.

What will the do for an encore tonight?

"I just wanted to have another good at-bat", said Muncy, who had a pair of hits and scored twice. The Dodgers could become the first team to lose the World Series on their home field in back-to-back seasons since 1937. Everyone's hanging this time of year, but it's one of those things where adrenaline helps a lot, and Eddie is one of those guys who no matter how big the situation is, he's always calm, and he's always collected.

It's an odd turn of events, for sure, and it brings one certain question to Game 5: Are the Red Sox so talented that they can win it all while getting more from their ace's mouth than his left arm?

With the Red Sox leading the World Series over the LA Dodgers, Boston's arts institutions don't want to miss the opportunity to let the world know the city is more than a sports town.

Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler allowed two hits over seven shutout innings and left with a one-run lead provided by Joc Pederson's third-inning homer off Rick Porcello.

"Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings", he tweeted.

Pitching actually dominated early in Game 4 on the second straight postcard-perfect night at Dodger Stadium. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts curiously turned to his exhausted bullpen with Hill rolling, and two batters after he exited, Moreland sent Scott Alexander's pitch into the back of the right-field bleachers with a 437-foot blast.

The Red Sox awoke from a high-profile hangover Saturday night at Dodger Stadium, moments after Sale did some dugout screaming, and now they stand one win away from a fourth championship in 15 seasons.

Red Sox first baseman Steve Pearce hit a solo homer in the eighth to tie the game 4-4. A much-needed win, especially after what happened (in Game 3).

The Dodgers were short on offense but did get some defensive heroics in the 10th inning when center fielder Cody Bellinger cut down the go-ahead run at home plate.

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.

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

After throwing only six pitches of relief in Game 3, Eduardo Rodriguez largely stymied the Dodgers over the first five innings. East Coast time. The Dodgers won 3-2, and now trail the Series 2 games to 1. Walking to the mound, he signalled to the bullpen and Hill was gone.
