Back by the beach, Dodgers look to get hot in World Series

  • Curt Schilling was not invited to throw out first pitch for Game 2 with 2004 Red Sox teammates

We've heard whispers in recent years about possibly putting a runner or runners on base in extra innings in the hope of ending the thing well before the seven-hour mark.

The Dodgers' Max Muncy hit a walkoff homerun in the 18th inning, giving the Dodgers a 3-2 victory over the Red Sox to end the longest World Series game in history.

His options for Game 4 include Pomeranz, ace Chris Sale on three days' rest or a total bullpen game with a bullpen that has pitched 20 1/3 innings in the first three games.

"I'm a little exhausted, but we're ready to come back tomorrow", Los Angles slugger Yasiel Puig said, looking at his watch and adding, "in a couple of hours". Martinez is not considered a good defensive outfielder while fully healthy and has been nursing an ankle injury, so to get the most of his best defenders, Cora began switching outfield alignments in the eighth inning.

Former Sri Lankan president Rajapaksa becomes new PM amid political drama
However the swearing in of Rajapaksa could be legalised by passing a no-confidence motion in parliament against Mr Wickremesinghe. A private television network loyal to Rajapakse televised him being sworn in as the new Prime Minister, replacing Wickremesinghe.

And he kept coming back out, inning after inning, to the amazement of even his teammates, until Muncy opened the 18th by launching Eovaldi's 97th pitch just beyond the left-centerfield wall.

One pitch later Nunez was sprinting down the line, beating out an errant toss to first by Dodgers pitcher Scott Alexander to allow Brock Holt to score the go-ahead run.

After hitting.297 in winning the first two games at cozy, chilly Fenway Park, Boston was 5 for 57 at the plate in the warmth of Dodger Stadium- including 0 for 28 in the top four slots of the batting order. Alexander fielded Eduardo Nunez's tapper between the mound and first base, but his throw to a hustling Hernandez got away and Holt scored. Once again, the play left Nunez face down on the ground. Muncy drew a leadoff walk and tagged up when Nunez tumbled into the third base stands after catching Bellinger's pop foul. "I felt really good after the first two at-bats, that I'd seen him (Eovaldi) well".

At 36, Kinsler's hardly the player he was in his prime, but the former Gold Glover has always been one of the league's best defenders at second base.

But the Red Sox were only in position to extend the game thanks to Eovaldi's heroics. Instead he became Boston's record-tying ninth pitcher when he entered to start the 12th inning.

A story in Bleacher Report quoted Red Sox pitching coach Dana LeVangie being frustrated with Manny Machado for stealing the Red Sox' signs in an obvious way during Game 2. It was also the longest game in Major League Baseball postseason history.

Eovaldi threw four more pitches than any member of Boston's staff had in an outing this post-season.
