The Boston Red Sox Win Fourth World Series Title Since 2004

The best team in the regular season finishes as the best team in the post-season! The Boston Red Sox have defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5 of the World Series.

What was predicted to be a pitching duel between two former Cy Young Award winners turned into a one-sided affair favoring Boston. Boston’s David Price out-pitched LA’s Clayton Kershaw after giving up a lead off home run to David Freese to start the game. Price would go on to pitch into the eighth inning, striking out five and giving up only one run. His performance in this series redefined his ability to pitch in October.

Boston’s bats backed Price up big time with four home runs. Two of the four homers came off the bat of their unsung hero and World Series MVP, Steve Pearce. Pearce had an unbelievably impressive two-game stretch to cap off the series. In the last two games, Pearce went 4-8 at the plate knocking in 7 RBIs with 3 HRs.

Congratulations to the city of Boston and the Red Sox organization on what has been an incredible season.
