Price Leads Red Sox To World Series Title
On Sunday, it was all about David Price.
The Red Sox lefty turned in his third straight stellar performance of the post-season, leading the Boston Red Sox to the World Series title, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1.
Price allowed just one run, a David Freese homer, on three hits over seven innings, outdueling Clayton Kershaw to lead the Red Sox to the title.
Kershaw gave up a two run homer to Steve Pearce in the first inning for all the runs Price would need. He gave up another homer to Mookie Betts in the sixth and J. D. Martinez in the seventh. Pearce hit his second homer in the eighth off reliever Pedro Baez.
Price retired 14 in a row after Freese laced a one out triple in the third inning. He exited after walking Chris Taylor leading off the eighth. Joe Kelly finished the eighth and Chris Sale pitched a scoreless ninth.
