Big rally sends Red Sox past Dodgers in Game 4

L.A. Dodgers

It was nearly too much to take for Los Angeles fans who watched the Boston Red Sox take the series in five games Sunday by winning 5-1, the same score of the Houston Astros' series-clinching win a year earlier.

A solo shot by ex-Ray Steve Pearce in the eighth got them even.

Red Sox first baseman Pearce, who hit a two-run homer on Clayton Kershaw's sixth pitch, was named the Most Valuable Player of the World Series. This time a year ago they had just lost a dramatic seven-game series to the Houston Astros.

Game 3 of the 2018 World Series will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the all-time October classics.

Game 1 starter Chris Sale was expected to again get the ball but, with the Red Sox leading 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, they will turn back to Game 2 victor Price.

They did so on the heels of a 108-win regular season in which they rode the arms of Price and fellow starters Sale and Rick Porcello and the bats of Betts, Martinez and others. I have no idea, " Boston's president of baseball operations said on the infield. So many things went wrong this season and they still won 95 games.

USA oil inventories increase last week
Front-month Brent crude oil futures were at $76.72 a barrel at 0320 GMT, 28 cents, or 0.4 per cent, above their last close. A conflict between the two countries would potentially mean a sharp increase in oil prices as Saudi limits production.

While Pearce won the World Series MVP honors thanks to his three timely home runs, pitcher David Price could have also taken that title.

Mitch Moreland hit a pinch-hit three-run home run off Ryan Madson three batters after Hill was pulled.

Before the game, the Dodgers stirred some happy memories for their fans by bringing out Kirk Gibson to throw the ceremonial first pitch. That seemed to signal a momentum switch that carried over into the next night, when the Dodgers surged to a 4-0 cushion on Yasiel Puig's electrifying home run. How do we explain baseball?

The Dodgers were unable to mount a big enough rally against Boston closer Craig Kimbrel, leaving L.A. with their backs against the wall - a spot they've managed to find themselves in time and again all season despite winning a second straight National League pennant.

The Dodgers started Hill in Game 4 as planned. The lefty got Justin Turner to ground out before Martinez tracked down a fly ball from Kike Hernandez down the right-field line to end the inning.

And at the top was Steve Pearce, a right-handed hitting journeyman who has played for every team in the AL East, including 12 games for the 2012 Yankees and hit.160.
