How long was Game 3 of the World Series?

The Red Sox tied it 1-all in the eighth on a homer by Jackie Bradley Jr. and took a 2-1 lead in the 13th. The eight pitchers who followed Porcello did not give up an earned run over the next 12 1/3 innings, but the longer the game went on, the more it figured to have a huge impact on the Red Sox's pitching plans for the remaining two games at Dodger Stadium. You guys know how I feel about what Yadi Molina did (for Puerto Rico) previous year.

Dodgers rookie starter Walker Buehler pitched seven masterful innings, and left with a 1-0 lead. "That was kind of defeating at that point, but I was able to get back and get another shot". It was also the longest game in Major League Baseball postseason history. Eduardo Nunez then hit a soft infield chopper, but pitcher Scott Alexander couldn't connect with second baseman Enrique Hernandez for the out at first, and when the ball got away from Hernandez, Holt scored to give the Red Sox a 2-1 lead.

The 2018 World Series continues on Saturday night, with the Los Angeles Dodgers hosting the Boston Red Sox for the second consecutive night in the best-of-seven series.

Bellinger started a sensational, inning-ending double play from center field, catching Nunez's pinch-hit fly and then firing to catcher Austin Barnes a few feet up the third-base line. Yasiel Puig set the play in motion with a hard grounder up the middle.

"I had the last out in my glove", Kinsler said. Instead, the veteran second baseman muffed his throw to first base, allowing Muncy to score and Puig to celebrate at first instead of taking second base. "I felt good the whole time", he said after the iconic game on October 26. Dodgers 4, Red Sox 3.

Now they get to come back this evening and do it all over again.

Game 3 was the longest World Series game by both innings and time (7 hours, 20 minutes). One of those was in the 1916 Series between the Red Sox and Brooklyn Robins, who later became the Dodgers.

After catching criticism for his lack of effort on the basepaths in the NLCS, Dodgers infielder and pending free agent Manny Machado said he was "not the type of player that's going to be "Johnny Hustle" because it's "not (his) cup of tea". "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" was played twice, during the seventh-inning stretch and the 14th inning elongation.

With the Red Sox least effective starter on the hill, L.A. managed just a solo home run from Joc Pederson on a flat changeup.

"Considering where we're at, down 2-1, home crowd behind us, I think there's a little bit of momentum on our side".
