9 thoughts on the Red Sox’ thrilling comeback in Game 4

The Red Sox now lead 2-1 in the best-of-seven series, with Game 4 set for Saturday.

Buehler, who past year watched Game Two of the World Series between Los Angeles and the Houston Astros from the Dodgers Stadium stands, had a much different view on Friday and was the man in the spotlight tossing seven shutout innings.

Game 3 of the World Series was unlike any World Series game that came before. Baseball is wonderful and bad. Muncy said. "Those last nine innings or so just kind of blended together".

While the Red Sox and Dodgers await the results of World Series Game 4 this evening, left-hander Clayton Kershaw has already been penciled in to start Game 5 of the series on Sunday night.

In Game 2, Price went six innings and allowed two runs on three hits while securing his second win of the 2018 playoffs. Xander Bogaerts added one more RBI-hit in a five-run ninth inning.

Trouble at the top: The top four spots in the Red Sox lineup were a combined 0-for-28 with 12 strikeouts and two walks.

We'll update with more ratings from last night's historic Game 3 and the rest of the primetime offerings later as they come in. He gets a chance to start Game 4 out of desperation, pitched beautifully, then gave up a three-run homer to the aggravating Puig when he should have been out of the inning. Dodgers starter Walker Buehler, 108 pitches; Eovaldi 97. The 35-year-old journeyman connected off All-Star closer Kenley Jansen for the tying homer in the eighth, and he cleared the bases one inning later with a double to the gap.

Nunez hit the Dodger Stadium ground more than he did the baseball in Friday night's marathon.

Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig (66) flexes his muscles as he rounds second after hitting a three-run homer off Eduardo Rodriguez (background), who doubled over in dejection after spiking his glove Gronkowski-style. Nathan Eovaldi, who had been set to start Game 4, made his third relief appearance of the week and pitched a ideal inning, topping 101 miles per hour with his fastball.

The Red Sox announced the decision on Twitter about four hours before Saturday's game at Dodger Stadium.

He is just the third relief pitcher in World Series history to throw six innings. Put it this way: The game took 15 minutes more than the entire 1939 World Series when the Yankees swept Cincinnati, STATS said.

Before the game, the Dodgers stirred some happy memories for their fans by bringing out Kirk Gibson to throw the ceremonial first pitch.

Hill walked the leadoff hitter in the seventh, but left to a standing ovation with one out.
