World Series Game 3: Muncy Saves LA [VIDEO]
The Red Sox ended up on the wrong end of baseball history Friday night. A 3-2 loss to the LA Dodgers in game three of the World Series in the longest game in Fall Classic history.
18 innings. 7-hours and 20-minutes. 561 total pitches.
The end came when LA's Max Muncy ripped an opposite field home run off Nathan Eovaldi in the bottom of the 18th.
In essence, the homer saved the Dodgers season. A Sox win would have put Boston up three games to none.
As always is the case in games like this, both teams had chances to win it.
An early game home run by Joc Peterson gave LA a 1-0 lead. A Jackie Bradley Jr. homer in the 8th inning tied the game 1-1.
In the 13th inning, a Sox walk, steal, infield hit and error pushed across the go-ahead run.
In the bottom of th 13th, the Dodgers tied it 2-2 on a two-out infield hit that Ian Kinsler got to but made a wide throw to first base.
NOTE: Game four of the series is tonight with live coverage on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket starting at 7pm. Rich Hill will start for LA. Alex Cora did not know after the game who would start for the Sox.
