Steve Pearce named 2018 World Series MVP

Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrates his 18th-inning walk-off home run to defeat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 in Game 3 of the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium on Oct. 26 2018 Here’s What You Missed While You Slept Through The Longest World Series Game In History

The quest is complete.

The Red Sox had many contributors and several heroes but none bigger than Jays castoff Steve Pearce.

"This is why I came to Boston".

Boston's Alex Cora, in his first year as a manager, is the first Puerto Rican manager to take a team to - and now win - the World Series.

Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez added solo home runs in the sixth and seventh, respectively. As such, it isn't a surprise to see them sitting atop the odds for the 2019 World Series championship, per Westgate Superbook.

The team played it again Sunday night in Los Angeles after winning the World Series.

"You never know where the game will take you", he said.

Chris Sale came on in the ninth inning and retired the side, striking out Justin Turner, Keke Hernandez, and Manny Machado in order to get the celebration started.

David Price put the finishing touches on completely re-writing his personal playoffs story in Game 5.

"It's not that we're playing with the lead, but we feel that for the team, for where we're at pitching-wise, it's good to go with David".

The 33-year-old Price, a Cy Young Award victor in 2012, long pitched under an October shadow cast by his regular-season success. Price started in Game 2 of the World Series and pitched in relief in Game 3 on Friday.

He became the first to pitch into the eighth inning of a Series game on one day of rest since the Yankees' Bob Turley in 1957. I have no idea, " Boston's president of baseball operations said on the infield. Madson got one out, then gave up the three-run homer to Moreland. In Game 5, he threw seven innings with five strikeouts and only two walks. And if the Red Sox hitters could've scored more than two runs in 13 innings, Kinsler wouldn't have even been in that situation to begin with. He dropped to 1-4 with a 6.06 ERA in postseason elimination games.

By going 4-for-12 (.333) with three homers and eight RBIs the 35-year-old Pearce was named the World Series' MVP. He more than settled down after that first-pitch homer, and gave up just two hits the rest of the way. To their credit, they fought back and won a baseball game.

"This has been the funnest year of my life", Pearce said on the field at Dodger Stadium.

The chances of a Fall Classic pitchers duel seemed unlikely when both starters were clobbered for first-inning home runs.

Betts emerged from his Game 5 hibernation to clinch his first career post-season home run.

The leadoff hitter of the seventh inning, Martinez crushed a 1-1 fastball off Kershaw to dead center.

Boston was 10-0 in the postseason when scoring first.

After a scoreless fifth, the Red Sox' stars finally woke up.
