Boston Red Sox win the World Series

Boston Red Sox win the World Series

"You're talking about a World Series game where there's no margin up to that point, and there's a lot of emotions, intensity, effort, focus, and he did everything".

The veteran slugger, acquired in late June from the Toronto Blue Jays, won the award Sunday night after his two-home run, three-RBI performance helped the Boston Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5.

It's not known whether the man was able to finish the full two litres on his own.

The Red Sox, after winning a franchise record and Major League Baseball best 108 games during the regular season, carried their domination all the way to the World Series and overwhelmed the Dodgers.

The Dodgers are facing elimination in the World Series for the second year straight, and it won't be pretty if they lose.

Boston sends David Price to the mound in the potential clinching game, and Price has seemingly turned his postseason narrative around - at least for a season.

During his time in Texas, appeared in 1,066 games while racking up 1,145 hits on his way to three All-Star Game appearances.

After giving up four runs and seven hits (three homers) in his 30th postseason game (24 starts), Kershaw is 9-10 with a 4.32 ERA.

Each lefty gave up a home run in the first.

The baseball critique stems from Roberts pulling starting pitcher Rich Hill from the game with the Los Angeles leading 4-0 in the seventh.

Xander Bogaerts drove in Pearce with a single to extend the lead to 9-4. Price walked the next hitter, Turner, but before the Dodgers could mount a scoring threat, Price fed Hernandez a 5-4-3 double-play ball and finished the inning by striking out Manny Machado. They're one win away after a shocking 9-6 Game 4 mugging of the Dodgers that made no sense, that defied all logic, that had nearly no precedent in 114 seasons of October baseball.

Pearce, the Series MVP, hit a two-run homer on Clayton Kershaw's sixth pitch.

Spurred on by Mitch Moreland's three-run home-run in the seventh inning, the Boston boys clawed back in front of around 54,400 baseball fans at Dodger Stadium to end the almost four-hour game with a victorious 9-6 score.
