9 thoughts on the Red Sox’ thrilling comeback in Game 4

Nathan Eovaldi, who had been set to start Game 4, made his third relief appearance of the week and pitched a flawless inning, topping 101 miles per hour with his fastball.

The Dodgers offense did not get much going, but they eventually wound up winning the game, 3-2, in 18 innings to get in the win column and cut their series deficit to 2-1. Boston was one out away from taking a commanding 3-0 lead, but anerror by second baseman Ian Kinsler allowed the Dodgers to tie the game 2-2 inthe 13th inning. Steve Pearce talks about how Chris Sale fired up the Red Sox's late rally.

Eovaldi earned recognition and praise from all sides, as several Dodgers noted his special performance. By the time they were done decimating the Dodgers' bullpen, six Red Sox had combined for seven hits - four for extra bases.

The Red Sox fell to the Dodgers, 3-2, in Game 3, a 7-hour-20-minute game, the longest in postseason history. They blew the same lead in Game 5 against the Houston Astros before losing in seven.

Let me play, too: The only players who didn't see action? The Dodgers, someone who saw the end of the game may not remember, took the lead in the third on a mistake pitch from Rick Porcello that Joc Pederson crushed to the bleachers at Dodger Stadium. Boston picked game two victor David Price to start on short rest against fellow lefty Clayton Kershaw. To take the title from the Boston Red Sox, they'll need to find a whole lot more. Muncy said. "Those last nine innings or so just kind of blended together". A few batters after Hill left, Boston's Mitch Moreland hit a 3 run homer off a relief pitcher.

Then came a run-scoring throwing error by catcher Christian Vazquez and Yasiel Puig's three-run homer against Eduardo Rodriguez in a four-run sixth inning Saturday that seemed like a crusher.

But the Dodgers' vaunted closer shook it off to pitch a flawless ninth.

It's a best-of-seven series, Silicon Valley.

All that falling down cost Nunez just enough speed to not be able to move from second to third in the 15th when Kenta Maeda gave up a leadoff single to Nunez and walked Jackie Bradley Jr. on five pitches.

After Friday night's 18-inning game, the Dodgers have shortened batting practice to 30 minutes and made it optional.

Pearce even scored Boston's ninth run on Bogaerts' single, celebrating wildly with his teammates in somnolent Chavez Ravine.

He is just the third relief pitcher in World Series history to throw six innings.

Before the game, the Dodgers stirred some happy memories for their fans by bringing out Kirk Gibson to throw the ceremonial first pitch.
