The Boston Red Sox won their fourth World Series championship in 15 years, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5 last night behind—and yes you are hearing me right—David Price.
Price, who came into this game a postseason pitching pariah—thank your English teacher if you appreciate that alliteration—having lost 9 of 10 post season starts won his second straight World Series start this year. This one being the Series clinching game throwing three-hit ball into the eighth inning.
Meanwhile, on offense, it was Boston’s Steve Pearce picking up right where he left off Saturday night when he broke Game 4 open with a bases clearing double in the ninth in the Sox 9-6 win.
Pearce opened the scoring with this two-run shot off Clayton Kershaw in the top of the first putting the Sox up 2-zip and giving them all the runs they would need and then—after solo shots by Mookie Betts and JD Martinez—Pearce closed the scoring with one more solo shot.
And walked away with the Series MVP.
