The Boston Red Sox won their fourth World Series championship in 15 years, sealing the win with a 5-1 triumph over the LA Dodgers in Game 5 at the Dodger Stadium. "My first couple years I was in the bullpen and I got to throw the last pitch of a world series so I can't complain".

Steve Pearce was named World Series Most Valuable Player, having helped Boston get off to a flying start in the final game with a two-run homer at the top of the first inning. Solo homers by Mookie Betts in the sixth inning and J.D. Martinez in the seventh quieted the Los Angeles crowd.

Boston Red Sox players and fans were in full party mode on Sunday evening after they clinched their ninth World Series. But the Red Sox got timely hitting and won their ninth title, tying the Athletics for third-most behind the Yankees (27) and Cardinals (11).

Here are some thoughts on the Red Sox's Game 5 victory and 2018 World Series championship.

The Dodgers and their fans arrived at Chavez Ravine on Sunday knowing only 13 teams had clawed their way back from 3-1 deficits to win a best-of-seven postseason series.

"I didn't say anything that anyone didn't know", Sale explained.

And the 35-year-old said the success at Dodger Stadium would be hard to top.

In the World Series, Machado was far from alone in underperforming.

The former Gamecock, who was played on eight different Major League Baseball teams, homered three times in the series while collecting four hits and eight RBIs. "We're world champions. To be able to be open up next season at Fenway Park with the ring ceremony and everything that goes along with it and to drop the banner for the 2018 world champions, that would definitely - I would love that".

Now, after allowing one run and three hits over seven-plus innings, he's won three in a row.

Despite all the good David Price had done in his stellar career that started with the Rays, the rap was that he couldn't win the big one. The Red Sox join NY among four franchises to win at least nine Fall Classics since the event's 1903 inception.

While he certainly made it look easy from April to October, Cora said that was not always the case. The day they signed him he said he wanted to win a World Series. They went 22-9-1 in spring training.

"This was a tough one for us tonight, it really was", Kershaw, who now will need to decide if he will exercise the opt-out clause in his contract, said. "But DP held the hot hand and he's carried us through this postseason as one of our starters, plus I got a chance to go old school". Reliever Joe Kelly (4.39 ERA in regular season) pitched in all five games, throwing six scoreless innings, with 10 strikeouts.

Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill didn't appreciate President Donald Trump's tweet criticizing manager Dave Roberts for taking him out of Game 4. He transformed into one of the driving forces behind the latest Red Sox championship, dominating one last time on Sunday night in Chavez Ravine.
