Red Sox storm past Dodgers to take 3-1 World Series lead

Hill, who had thrown 91 pitches, had allowed one run, striking out seven and walking three when he left with a four-run lead and one out in the seventh inning.

Roberts said after the game that he had made a decision to pull Hill after a conversation with the pitcher.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he talked to his players and coaching staff about President Donald Trump's tweet criticizing Roberts for taking Rich Hill out of Saturday's Game 4 but that he hasn't thought much about it beyond that.

Devers was batting.276 (8 for 29) for the postseason, and Saturday night was only the third time he has been brought in off the bench.

The 38-year-old pitcher was pulled by Roberts with one out and a runner on in the seventh inning after six scoreless innings.

Boston's bench is a big reason why the Red Sox are one win from their fourth World Series title since 2004.

"I've never been on a team where you just get punched in the face and then come back tomorrow and act like they are totally fine", Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez said.

Cora noted that if Boston does not close out the World Series in Los Angeles, Price will be available out of the bullpen for Games 6 and 7.

"I don't think he's anxious about any Cuban players or any Mexican players, " Madson said of Trump.

Ernie Banks would have been happy - the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox filled his oft-said desire: Let's play two!

Muncy went 1 for 5 in Game 4 after his early-morning heroics for the Dodgers, who must overcome a 3-1 deficit to end their 30-year championship drought.

Instead of the race for four wins tied at 2-2 and guaranteed to return to Fenway Park, the Red Sox hold a commanding 3-1 lead heading into Game 5 on Sunday night at Dodger Stadium where they can close out the NL champions. A Boston win would be the end, and reduce the Dodgers to repeat World Series losers for the first time since 1977-78. "We've got to do a better job of picking him up".

Pearce scored the fifth run of the top of the ninth on a single from Xander Bogaerts.

But the bullpen rallied, with eight relievers combining for 11 innings of five-hit ball in the longest World Series game in history. Ninth inning, bases loaded, one out of a one-run ballgame, and he's sitting there eating seeds, doing the same thing as a 10-1 ballgame in the fourth inning. Houston won last year's World Series here in seven games.
