Up against the Houston Astros' triumph over the Dodgers in Game 3 of the 2017 World Series on October 27 of that year, last night's match-up stumbled almost 10% in the tally from 56 markets across the nation.
"I think my beard got about 3 inches longer", said Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, whose red whiskers already were Santa length. Up 1-0 in a Game 4 battle with the Boston Red Sox, Puig stepped up to the plate with two runners on. He hurled eight shutout innings in a dominant Game 2 performance during the NLDS and put away the Brewers with seven frames of one-run ball in Game 5 of the NLCS.
Hoping the momentum holds for the hometown boys, Game 4 starts tonight in LA just after 5 PM PT.
Said one fan, "I hope this game never ends". Instead, Roberts preferred the southpaw Scott Alexander, who walked Holt on the only four pitches he expended.
Kinsler stumbled, rushed, and threw the Boston Red Sox's 2-1 13th-inning lead feebly past first baseman Christian Vazquez. The Red Sox won that game, which saw Boston pitcher Babe Ruth pitch all 14 innings, according to Major League Baseball.
"You look up and see the 18th inning, and you're like, holy cow, where did the game go?" The Dodgers had their first run and runners on first and second.
"In October you kind of get that rejuvenation of energy and adrenaline, because the games are so meaningful and impactful". He is just the third relief pitcher in World Series history to throw six innings.
The Dodgers trail 2-1 in the best-of-seven Series. Muncy scored when Kinsler botched the throw to first on Yasiel Puig's infield single.
Game 2 of this series felt a lot like Game 1 where a couple pitching decisions by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts wound up being incorrect ones.
The Dodgers turned to Kenley Jansen in the eighth for the second straight game. Both teams ran through all of their relievers, but Boston seemed worse for wear in the end, particularly Eduardo Nunez, who seemed to suffer a variety of leg injuries as the game wore on. Barnes made the tag as Kinsler came barreling past and both players tumbled to the dirt.
"Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings", he tweeted.
Will everyday Eovaldi volunteer to pitch Saturday? Porcello pitched 4 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and one run.
