We asked Dodgers fans

Red Sox manager Alex Cora

The quest is complete.

It was nearly too much to take for Los Angeles fans who watched the Boston Red Sox take the series in five games Sunday by winning 5-1, the same score of the Houston Astros' series-clinching win a year earlier.

Backed into a corner and with their bullpen worn out, the Dodgers turned to three-time Cy Young victor Clayton Kershaw, while the Red Sox countered with their Cy Young victor Price.

"That", pitching coach Dana LeVangie said, "is a special man". "And I'm definitely glad that the time came and we moved past it".

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 hit solo shots in the sixth and seventh innings, respectively.

A June acquisition from Toronto, Pearce had three homers and seven RBIs in the final two games. In the last eleven, though, his only extra-base hit was a double, and he drove in three runs.

Of course, they let loose a few choice words about the rival Yankees, too. It might not take much to tilt this game, one way or another.

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

Boston outscored the Dodgers 28-16 and had only a slightly better batting average at.222 to.180.

Nunez, who has suffered a slew of injuries this season, sacrificed his body on multiple occasions in Boston's 18-inning Game 3 loss to the Dodgers. He occupied one spot in a lineup that the Red Sox outscored 28-16, and which could get nearly nothing going in Game 5, in which everyone who was not David Freese went 1-for-26.

"I can't say we are the best [ever]. Kind of soaked it up a little bit and enjoyed it for sure".

The 33-year-old Price, a Cy Young Award victor in 2012, long pitched under an October shadow cast by his regular-season success. He joined Babe Ruth and Ted Williams as the only players 35 or older to have a multi-homer game in the World Series. What would they sacrifice to see the Dodgers win this World Series?

"It is unbelievable how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through nearly 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever (s) who get shellacked". "I think that there's a lot of thoughts and opinions that people don't have all the information, which is commonplace these days and cultivate opinions and give out there".

"To be able to come through in October for my team, it feels very good", he added. Indeed, the Dodgers seemed to be affected by one of the most debilitating defeats in franchise history the night before, when the Red Sox surmounted a four-run deficit with eight runs in the final three innings of Game 4. "If necessary in Game 6, he's the starter". Not leaving anything to chance, Cora brought in his ace Chris Sale to finish off the Dodgers with a 1-2-3 inning.

For Price, the start will also be an opportunity to continue to slay his post-season demons. David Freese hit a leadoff home run in the first inning for the Dodgers, who finished with just three hits Sunday. They only managed one other hit the rest of the game. He drove Price's first pitch 402 feet to the opposite field and into the right field pavilion. It was the 10th career postseason home run for the first baseman, who also tripled in the third inning.
