Longest-ever World Series game smashes some home-run memes

That year, the Yankees swept the Reds in four games that took a combined 7 hours, 5 minutes.

After Friday night's 18-inning game, the Dodgers have shortened batting practice to 30 minutes and made it optional.

When informed about Trump's comments on social media, Roberts told reporters post-game: "The President said that?" I slept a few hours.

"I think my beard got about 3 inches longer", said Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, whose red whiskers already were Santa length. He was also a key piece to the Rangers' 2010 and 2011 World Series runs. "It kind of got everything going and you saw everybody loosen up and just try to go out there and compete again", he added.

The game went 18 innings, the only World Series game ever to do so, clobbering the previous record of 14 innings shared by three different games.

He will start at first base against the Boston Red Sox. Part of the reason for this is the Red Sox are patient hitters and up their game when runners are in scoring position, while LA's bats see like they're constantly swinging for dingers.

Xander Bogaerts was 0-for-8 in Game 3 and appeared to be limping afterward, but Cora said it was just a cramp the shortstop has dealt with in the past.

The top of the Boston lineup had done nothing for two days until Pearce, batting third, homered over the wall in left-center field to compete a comeback from a 4-0 deficit.

Boston starter Rick Porcello gave up one run and three hits in 4 2/3 innings, struck out five and walked one. The pitch that Muncy hit was Eovaldi's 97th of the game.

For the Dodgers, Rich Hill is starting after all.

His team down by a run, Steve Pearce was limbering up outside the Boston dugout before the eighth inning when manager Alex Cora called him back to the bench for a quick word.

Ernie Banks would have been happy - the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox filled his oft-said desire: Let's play two!

Buehler, who a year ago watched Game Two of the World Series between Los Angeles and the Houston Astros from the Dodgers Stadium stands, had a much different view on Friday and was the man in the spotlight tossing seven shutout innings.

It's a best-of-seven series, Silicon Valley. Their 9-6 victory over the Dodgers in World Series Game 4, all of their runs coming in the final three innings, gave them a 3-1 lead in this series.

The Red Sox announced the decision on Twitter about four hours before Saturday's game at Dodger Stadium.
