◼️ Boston settled the series in Los Angeles against the Dodgers and got his title number nine in the Fall Classic.
The Boston Red Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 of the MLB World Series and was awarded for the ninth time in the Fall Classic, the fourth in this century and the first since 2013. The 5-1 of the defining game was a sample of how dominant was the offensive Red Sox during the series.

From the beginning, Boston came out strong at Dodger Stadium. In the top of the first inning, a two-run home run by Steve Pearce – which he kept on after the big Game 4 he had – put things 2-0 for the visit to a Kershaw who, again, suffered from the offense of the Red Sox.
LA answered quickly by means of a lone homer of Freese before the first pitcher of the opener David Price. From there, Price’s thing brushed perfection from the Boston mound. In seven innings, he barely conceded that Freese race and the Angelenos never had him in check.
Boston’s 119 wins including the postseason are 2nd-most by a World Series champion in MLB history (1998 Yankees, 125).
