Ex-Jay Steve Pearce named MVP as Red Sox win World Series

Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History Donald Trump Blames Dodgers' Dave Roberts for Blowing World Series Game

Steve Pearce slammed a pair of home runs and David Price tossed a seven-inning gem to power the Boston Red Sox to a 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers and their fourth World Series title in 15 years on Sunday.

He had a rough go of it - 0 for 8 with an RBI (a groundout) - in his first two Major League Baseball games before breaking out in game one of an April 28 doubleheader at Kansas City. What they did Sunday night (Monday NZT) at Chavez Ravine was merely finish the job, and put the rest of baseball on notice for years to come. "This is what I envisioned".

"As a guy living in Pittsburgh, let me just ask: is watching the World Series really the best use of your time this evening?" one Twitter user responded to Trump. This move, however, has set off alarm bells - mainly about the health of Sale, who missed a start in the American League Championship series due to a stomach illness.

"I said it on the stage, it's the best Red Sox team ever", owner John Henry said after the trophy celebration.

Now, after allowing one run and three hits over seven-plus innings, he's won three in a row.

"He was dominant", Pearce said. "When he takes it, he's a bulldog and he competes".

Pearce smashed three home runs, including two in Game 5, and hit.333 en route to his first career World Series ring.

The team played it again Sunday night in Los Angeles after winning the World Series. Yogi Berra (1956), Johnny Bench (1976), Reggie Jackson (1977) and Eddie Murray (1983) also populate a list littered with Hall of Famers, elite company joined by a midseason acquisition from the Blue Jays.

"This has been a lifelong journey and to be here right now is a dream come true", the 35-year-old said. "I've been a part of a lot of playoff teams and this one was different".

I'm very proud of him.

Price survived some early bumps that previously might have dented his psyche. In the eighth, he came back with another homer to score the final run of the series. The Red Sox won it in the ninth and we can all get to sleep at a reasonable hour tonight. "We've been talking about it for five games now". Chris Taylor flied out and Austin Barnes struck out. "It was awesome", his wife, Tiffany, said. "Every pitch, every inning, he was doing a great job". The first was a two-run shot in the top of the first inning.

Xander Bogaerts drove in Pearce with a single to extend the lead to 9-4.

Pearce hit a two-run homer on Clayton Kershaw's sixth pitch. "I prepare. We prepare as a group, and you make decisions", he said after Game 1.
