Trump assails Roberts' moves in Dodgers' 9-6 loss to Red Sox

As if the drama of the World Series had not been unpredictable enough, the Boston Red Sox threw out their latest surprise when they named pitcher David Price as the starter for Sunday's Game 5 against the hometown Los Angeles Dodgers (8:09 p.m. ET).

Working on a one-hitter with a 4-0 lead, Rich Hill had just set down Eduardo Nunez swinging for the first out of the seventh inning. Los Angeles took Game 3 in a marathon 18-inning game. UFC president Dana White, wearing a navy blue Red Sox jersey, was spotted as well. I don't think he's privy to the conversation.

And that left them looking pretty, pretty good after all, leading the Series 3-1, needing one win to clinch a fourth championship in 15 years, and having the first of three chances tonight. For Price, Game 5 is a chance to expand on his new rep as a man who can deliver in October, having already broken his career-long losing streak as a postseason starter with back-to-back wins in his ALCS Game 5 and World Series Game 2 turns in the rotation.

Hours earlier, Jansen gave up Jackie Bradley Jr.'s tying homer in the eighth inning of an epic Game 3, blowing his attempt at a six-out save in his third major World Series failure in two years. In his last outing, he gave up five runs on seven hits in Game 1 of the Fall Classic.

The Red Sox first baseman went 4-for-12 with eight RBI in the five games.

The three-time Cy Young award victor struggled in Game 1 at Boston, allowing five runs and seven hits in four-plus innings. Puig followed with a three-run blast off Eduardo Rodriguez, who carried a two-hit shutout into the sixth.

"I'm happy he was tuning in, and watching the game", Roberts said of the tweet.

"We are a bunch of grinders", Pearce said after the game, "and this is exactly where we knew we were going to be". He is 9-10 with a 4.32 ERA in 30 post-season appearances, a huge drop from his 153-69 record and 2.39 ERA during the regular season.

Pearce, who played for the Rays in 2016, had the big hit then, t00, a bases loaded triple. The Red Sox powered their way through Game 5 with four home runs. "I mean, they could go a totally different way..." Sale ended by throwing a slider past Manny Machado, a meagre 4 for 22 (.182) in the Series, and raised both arms as catcher Christian Vazquez ran out to jump on him with glee and teammates from the dugout and bullpens followed. "It's what we needed to get the guys going, and he was the right guy for it".

I appreciate everything about what [Eovaldi] did last night.

Kike Hernandez cut into Boston's lead with a two-run homer in the ninth off Craig Kimbrel. They went 22-9-1 in spring training. The first was a two-run shot in the top of the first inning.
