That ruled him out of Game 4 Saturday night and Game 5 Sunday evening. No, the Red Sox did not clinch their fourth World Series title in 15 years Saturday night.

Clayton Kershaw, a three-time NL Cy Young Award victor with a.163 career batting average, pinch hit in the 17th inning and lined out. The Dodgers left runners on in every inning from the fifth to the 11th. Now, this is assured: There will be no four-game losing streak this season.

And the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum doesn't want you to forget that its creator and namesake was a huge Sox fan. "So I'm not gonna have that on my conscious again", Jackson said.

Fastballs and cutters. Occasional sliders and splits.

West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo retires from worldwide cricket
The 29-year-old surpassed fellow Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar , who first crossed the mark in 259 innings in 2001. He put on 139 runs for the third wicket with Ambati Rayudu, who made 73.


Pinch-hitter Rafael Devers singled home Brock Holt with the tiebreaking run in the ninth as Boston roared to a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven matchup. The longtime Dodgers closer has three blown saves and an extra-inning loss during the past two World Series.

The stadium organist was busy, too, launching into "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" in the 14th inning - a second version of the seventh-inning stretch.

Porcello had given up only a run on three hits over 4 2/3 innings when Cora started a parade of relief pitchers that would include starter David Price on two days' rest and eventually include everyone in the bullpen except rusty left-hander Drew Pomeranz.

Trouble at the top: The top four spots in the Red Sox lineup were a combined 0-for-28 with 12 strikeouts and two walks.

The Red Sox were originally going to start ex-Yankee Nathan Eovaldi in Game 4 but after he worked six innings in Game 3 that took the right-hander out of the mix. That means someone else who typically starts is going to be on the bench. It's clear his manager expected more from him, and his postseason role probably wasn't what he wanted. For L.A.: likely Game 4 starter Rich Hill and Game 2 starter Hyun-jin Ryu.

"I was just doing anything you can think to try and bring a little luck".

Third baseman Justin Turner bats third, followed by shortstop Manny Machado, center fielder Cody Bellinger, right fielder Yasiel Puig, left fielder Chris Taylor, catcher Chris Barnes and pitcher Rich Hill. He did have a decent excuse. Mitch Moreland's pinch-hit three-run home run in the eighth inning, which turned a 4-0 game that felt like a blowout into a 4-3, hmmm-what-have-we-here thriller, was his first since August 22. "As far as getting 27 outs I know we have enough in the bullpen to do that". The 35-year-old journeyman connected off All-Star closer Kenley Jansen for the tying homer in the eighth, and he cleared the bases one inning later with a double to the gap.
