A Superb Red Sox Team Wins It All!

October 29, 2018

The Boston Red Sox won their fourth World Series crown in the last 15 seasons, evoking thoughts of a century earlier, when they won five in 15 World Series seasons (1903-1918, no W.S. in 1904), winning (5-1) at L.A, to take the Dodgers in 5 games, as they did vs the same franchise in the World Series, 102 years earlier.

Series MVP, Steve Pearce hit two home runs, including a 2 run blast T1, that gave Boston a lead they never relinquished behind pitchers David Price (he notched his second W.S. win, his third post-season start win in his last 3 starts in the fourth consecutive Red Sox win in a Price start), Joe Kelly and ace starter, Chris Sale, who fanned Manny Machado to end the incredible 119 wins Red Sox title season.

Mookie Betts (how far away from the ’86 W.S.– when in one Mookie Wilson at bat sans a Mookie hit, game 6 and eventually the title slipped away from the Red Sox, extending their title drought to 68 years in an excruciating baseball (not that important) manner– the Red Sox are now, actually owning the best W.S. percentage as (9-4) is slightly better percentage wise, certainly not accomplishment wise, than the vaunted Yankees’ (27-13) and J.D. Martinez also hit home runs, while David Freese led off the L.A. first with a home run, as all runs in the tilt were scored on home runs.

This was the fifth time that the Dodgers played in the World Series in consecutive years, losing both for the third time and the second one all five times.

Again, game 5 losing pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, failed in a post-season start, suffering the loss in a game in which L.A. was eliminated for I believe the third time.

Yet this is about a truly great season for the Red Sox, 108 regular season wins and but one loss in beating two 100 or more wins teams, the Yankees and defending champion Astros as well as the (92-71) Dodgers.

Hail manager Alex Cora, a bench coach with the Astros last season and this superb 119 wins Red Sox title team!
