Donald Trump Blames Dodgers' Dave Roberts for Blowing World Series Game

Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History

Total domination is complete.

The Dodgers led 4-0 until Moreland came off the bench to belt a three-run homer in the seventh, one inning after Yasiel Puig launched a three-run blast. He later had a solo home run in the eighth.

J.D. Martinez stepped up in the seventh inning with a solo homer that took the Red Sox lead to 4-1.

For a guy who was snakebitten in the fall, Price finished on an incredible three-win run - the ALCS clincher vs. Houston, Game 2 of the Fall Classic back in Boston and now this. Before he was pulled in the bottom of the eighth, Price had retired 14 batters in a row.

For the second straight night, a late Red Sox homer off Dodgers relief ace Kenley Jansen set up the late-game drama. Only the New York Yankees (27) and St. Louis Cardinals (11) have more.

The Red Sox exploded for five runs in the ninth inning.

Boston's Alex Cora, in his first year as a manager, is the first Puerto Rican manager to take a team to - and now win - the World Series.

He finally found his permanent place - in Red Sox lore.

But one thing is for sure: the Dodgers and Red Sox gave us an incredible, breathtaking baseball game in Game 3, and it was a game that will go down in history as one of the wildest, craziest, most freaky classics in World Series history. They went 22-9-1 in spring training.

Of all the special things about these Red Sox, from the young talent, to the rookie-prodigy manager, to a Fenway vault stuffed with cash, their most impressive quality was put on display in the 114th World Series. He did everything to put us in a position to win a baseball game.

The Dodgers may have wobbled them for 18 innings in Game 3, and had them on the ropes again in Game 4, but the Red Sox wore that sparkle of destiny nearly from Opening Day. The Dodgers had been 54-0 this year when leading by four or more runs at any point, and they held that advantage with eight outs remaining. In 2007, they swept the Colorado Rockies.

Boston never looked back from that damaging first inning: the Dodgers' bats that went cold for deep stretches of the series were ineffective once again on a balmy Los Angeles evening.

Despite their rich baseball histories, this was only the second time these two teams faced each other in the World Series.

He began aggressively, throwing strikes on his first six pitches, and the Red Sox were ready.

Los Angeles trails 3-1 in the best-of-seven series.
